Default Jet Foil between Ostend and Ramsgate

are there still jetfoils b/w Ostend and Ramsgate?
I read somewhere that the jetfoils were sold to
a German company to be used b/w Germany and Denmark
(never got permissions though).

IF there are still jet foil service, what would be the approximate
cost? (trying to figure out if the additional time of
Brussels - train to Ostend - Jetfoil to Ramsgate - train to London
is worth the saving in cost (as compared to Eurostar directly
from Brussels to London which I found to be around 220 USD)

Thank you.

There are no services between Oostende and the English coast anymore.
Passengers wishing to use the train-boat-train combination between Belgium
and the UK are bussed from Oostende to Calais, where they board a fast
ferry. I cannot imagine the service being very popular...

Eurostar Brussels - London can be had for EUR 40,- one way if you book 21
days beforehand. So I wouldn't dismiss this option to soon...
