P&O Pride of York

The Pride of York was originally built for North Sea Ferries named Norsea. The vessel was used on their Hull to Rotterdam route. The Pride of York or Norsea as it was then known, was built as a replacement along with Norsun (Now the Pride of Bruges) as the Rotterdam route had built up trade to the point where the current vessels, Norland and Norstar could no longer cope with the demand of the route.

In May 2001 the vessel was replaced on the Hull Rotterdam route by the new mv Pride of Hull, once relieved of active duty she was sent off for a major refurbishment. Once complete she was put onto the Hull to Zeebrugge route replacing the Norland. The following year she was renamed mv Pride of York.
