More About This episode

Faust is a vehicle carrier like none other. A high-tech marvel, her job is to haul $65-million worth of Jaguars, Rolls-Royces, and other luxury automobiles across the turbulent North Atlantic, one of the most unforgiving seas on the planet. To complete her mission, Faust must steer through this winter crossing, where storms, the threat of fire, and even stowaways, will make for an intense, stress-filled mission...and deliver her cargo without so much as a single scratch.
