I thought locking the car manually with the key did it....

If not, don't worry. Brand new ish car can handle its alarm going off for 40 minutes, no drama or flat battery

Pretty sure they are limited by statute to 20 minutes of operation. After that, it's perfectly legal to thump the car with a large sledgehammer LOL 🤣

Doesn't the Focus give you the option to switch to a less sensitive mode when leaving the car, my Ecosport does it disables the motion sensor.

Would leaving it unlocked disable the alarm?

Locks itself after a few minutes, there will be a way around that though I’m sure.

It will only lock itself again if you don't open a door, when you unlock it, open a door, close it again, and it will remain unlocked and un alarmed.

Speaking as someone who has used many diffrent ferry crossings and with diffrent vehicles (including a Ford Transit and Ford Mondeo) I have to ask the question why.

Why do you want to have the alarm system switched off ? Are you expecting that the movement of the ferry is in some way going to activate the alarm, because it won't. I can say with total confidence that almost every single vehicle on the ferry will be locked and alarmed and yes there will be one or possibly two vehicles whos alarm will go off but that is normally because they left a window part open or the dog is in the car, or both !

If you are concernd about the internal sensors being triggerd then just select 'Part Set' on the menu before leaving the car.
