Shaping up and selling fast:  the new Condor Liberation

Condor Ferries’ new £50m state-of-the-art fast ferry, Condor Liberation, is well on track to take up service on her route between the Channel Islands and Poole at the end of March.

Last week, Clive Davies and his wife Julie, from Guernsey, who won the naming competition, were invited to see the ship proudly receiving its new name.

Recognising the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Channel Islands, Condor Liberation was just one of over 7,000 entries received in the naming competition that ran in the Channel Islands late last year.

Meanwhile, following the highly successful launch of their new corporate identity, Condor Ferries has shared some artist impressions of what passengers can expect.

The new seating areas including the luxurious Ocean Club Lounge, plus the Island Bar and Adore Duty Free shop are almost ready to welcome the first passengers.

Alicia Andrews of Condor Ferries commented: “We’re very excited to be able to give a small glimpse at what Condor Liberation will look like onboard. A lot of research and planning has gone into Condor Liberation’s seating and facilities, to ensure we’re able to offer the best onboard experience possible. Her fit-out is not far off completion now - it is really great to see everyone’s hard work paying off with the end result in sight.”

From the end of March, all fast ferry travel to the Channel Islands will be on Condor Liberation from Poole, offering improved reliability, increased capacity, and a much greater level of comfort with smoother journeys.

And with just one month to go until the first sailing of Condor Liberation, Condor Ferries is seeing unprecedented demand.

Condor Liberation - the first ferry of its kind in Northern Europe - marks a new era in sea travel, and with hundreds of passengers already booked to travel on her inaugural 9.30am sailing from Poole to the Channel Islands on Friday 27 March, it’s going to be quite an event.

Condor Ferries has already seen a 14 per cent increase in bookings for spring travel to Guernsey and Jersey, with passengers keen to be among the first to sail on the new vessel. There is also strong demand for summer travel as holidaymaker’s make their plans for a summer escape.
