The Austal-built trimaran ferry Condor Liberation arrived yesterday for the first time into Guernsey’s St. Peter Port harbor to begin mooring trials in preparation for the kickoff of passenger services later this month.
The 102-meter ferry came at a price of roughly £50 million to Condor Ferries and will provide ROPAX services between Poole, Guernsey and Jersey.
According to Austal, the vessel has a maximum speed of 45 knots, but will operate at a service speed of 35 knots while carrying up to 880 passengers and 235 vehicles. The ship features a central T-foil on the main hull forward and T-foil roll control fins on each of the vessel’s amahs to provide a more stable ride at high speeds.
