I'm sure someone will be along soon with a name.

As I'd be looking in the 'marine repairs' section of Yachting Monthly to start with.
There must be several companies down near Chichester and the Hamble

Is that fibreglass? It looks more like an ABS type plastic moulding to me...

There are plastic car bumper repairers out there, maybe one of them can take a look at repairing it for you?

If you have all the pieces, as ROCHESB says, a bumper repair specialist should be able to sort it. If not any competent bodyshop should be able to handle it. The difficulty will be in finding one who is competent/confident enough to remove the bumper.

You are right it's not fibreglass, most likely ABS as you say but certainly plastic.

I will second Spitfire Garage, they will be repairing our rear bumper later this year, when we put it back on the road.
It will involve leaving it with them for 4/5 days, so I will probably have to get the train back to home in Camberley.
These small incidents can be a real PITA but Spitfire gave me a sensible price, an have a good rep.

Now a little one
If the ferry company have accepted liability you could check with a Chausson dealer and see if they can source a replacement bumper end cap. The end caps are separate units, designed to be replaced if the unfortunate happensšŸ˜
