Condor New Ferry Named

Condor Ferries is pleased to announce the official name of its brand new, state-of-the-art ferry - Condor Liberation - recognising the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Channel Islands.

 

The name has been chosen by a judging panel following a naming competition held in the Channel Islands, which received an incredible 7,146 competition entries. Clive Davies from Guernsey was the ultimate winner – he will receive a year’s free travel with Condor Ferries and will have the opportunity to visit Condor Liberation to see the name he chose being painted onto the ship in Poole.

 

Alicia Andrews, Executive Director – Commercial at Condor Ferries, said: “We’re delighted with the name of our brand new ship, Condor Liberation. We felt it was particularly apt in this, the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Channel Islands and are very pleased that Liberation is a name that will be as significant to our French passengers as it is to our Channel Island and UK passengers.
