In 2011, the MV Blue Puttees, along with her sister ship the MV Highlanders, joined the Marine Atlantic fleet. At almost 200m in length, the MV Blue Puttees helped to increase our capacity by 25 per cent, and offers more seating, amenities and dining choices to meet our customers’ needs. From the vibrant wall murals and cozy Riva Café, to the family-friendly Barista Café and panoramic viewing deck, this vessel offers something for everyone. Take a look at our photo gallery to see all this modern vessel has to offer.

The Name: Marine Atlantic proudly named this vessel after the regiment that represented Newfoundland in the Great War. They quickly earned a reputation as a fierce fighting unit and were part of the tragic advance at Beaumont-Hamel on July 1, 1916. The Newfoundland soldiers’ courage and sacrifice on that day will never be forgotten.
