2015 schedule heralds arrival of new £50m Channel Islands ferry Condor 102

You can book sailings to the Channel Islands and France for journeys right up to 2 November 2015 following the publication of Condor’s new sailings schedule which sees the arrival of the spanking new Condor 102.

The £50m Austral-class ferry will deliver a whole new on board experience, as well as more comfortable and more reliable travel for passengers sailing to and from the Channel Islands.

You’ll also be able to enjoy day trips to Guernsey and Jersey, with early morning departures from Poole as it is too big to operate from Weymouth - as well as Inter-Island trips allowing visitors to explore the beauty of both Islands during their stay.

“Passengers can now book sailings to both the Channel Islands and France right through to next November, but it is the Islands sailings which will really capture passengers’ imaginations.” said Alicia Andrews at Condor Ferries.

“From the end of March, all journeys to the Channel Islands will be on the new Condor 102 from Poole, which offers smoother journeys, greater reliability and a superb on board experience including a wider choice of seating, a range of dining, and even shopping facilities for our passengers to enjoy.

“We are all very excited about the arrival of the Condor 102 and I’m sure that our passengers will love sailing to the Channel Islands on our new ship.”

Advantages of the Condor 102, which will carry 880 passengers and 245 vehicles, include ease of driviong onto the ferry and parking on the car deck.

There will be a choice of three seat classes:

  • Ocean Traveller which offers assigned airline-style seats in an open lounge with full access to the on board dining and shopping
  • Ocean Traveller Plus lounge with its private bar and seating which is either airline-style reclining or arranged around a table
  • The Ocean Club private lounge with at-seat service and leather reclining seats with tables.
  • Ocean Traveller Plus and Ocean Club feature at-seat charging facilities for portable devices, and you will be able to access the on board Wi-Fi service when in, or near to, port.

    Passengers will also be able to enjoy the outdoor deck area, children’s play area, Bureau de Change and range of shopping outlets, including Duty Free.

    Other advantages include the removal of extra charges for SUVs as well as the extension of the maximum car length to 5.5 metres, meaning that all leisure vehicles are now priced similarly.

    Travellers visiting Guernsey will also have the opportunity for day excursions to France at weekends and on popular days during the summer.
