Condor Ferries was founded in 1964 and initially operated a passenger service between France and the Channel Islands. In 1987, the first service linking the Channel Islands with the UK was launched and since then Condor Ferries has operated a year-round service connecting the UK, Guernsey and Jersey and the port of St Malo in France. Each year, they carry over 1 million passengers and 200,000 passenger vehicles on their services.
In March 2015, Condor Ferries introduced a new addition to the fleet – Condor Liberation. This state-of-the-art high-speed car ferry is the first of its kind to operate in Northern Europe, and marks £50m of investment in the Channel Islands. Condor Liberation serves Guernsey and Jersey from its UK base in Poole.
Condor Ferries also operate Condor Rapide, a fast car ferry, serving the Guernsey and Jersey to France routes.
In addition, they have two conventional ships serving the Portsmouth to Guernsey and Jersey routes: Commodore Clipper, which is a car, passenger and freight ship, and provides an all-weather, year-round service; and Commodore Goodwill which is a freight only vessel.
