Our New Floating Bridge
We have just launched our new floating bridge.
The old Floating Bridge was almost 40 years old, and so the replacement will make a big improvement to the service.
Five reasons the new Floating Bridge will be better for Cowes and the IOW
The Floating Bridge runs on diesel and the new bridge is designed to be much more efficient, burning significantly less fuel.
It will carry more vehicles and bikes.
The existing 40 year old Floating Bridge needs lots of expensive and time consuming maintenance. The new Floating Bridge will be much more reliable.
The new vessel will be able to do up to 5 knots. This means faster, more regular crossings.
With glass sides, better facilities and technology, crossing the river on the new Floating Bridge will be a more enjoyable experience for our thousands of passengers.
