About us

Ferry Publications was established in 1987 and is now widely recognised as Europe’s leading publisher in this specialist field, producing a range of publications covering all aspects of the ever-changing ferry scene in the UK, Scandinavia and Mediterranean spheres of operations.

In addition to our books, we publish a quarterly ferry magazine, formerly known as British Ferry Scene, but from October 2009 it was changed to Ferry & Cruise Review, to include an overview of the expanding cruise industry.

We pride ourselves with the high-quality photographic reproduction which we achieve and we believe that our books fill a considerable gap in the market, not only for shipping enthusiasts but anyone who is involved in the shipping industry.

For 2017 we have a wide range of new publications, including P&O Ferries 180, revised editions of Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria.  In our expanded Cunard titles we will also publish Cunard – The Fleet and Queen Mary – The last Voyage from Britain.  Other new books will include Bretagne, and a detail book on the cruise industry plus our annual reference book on the industry, Ferries 2018.
