For just a few weeks the high speed ferries Condor Express and Condor Liberation were in use together, after the Condor Liberation had been bought to replace the Condor Vitesse and Condor Express. On this rare occasion, on the 21st March 2015, both the Express and Liberation were scheduled to leave Guernsey one after the other. The Condor Express is seen painted in a plain white livery, this was because it had been sold to it's new company Seajets, a ferry company in Greece and was being used by Condor Ferries until the official hand over date around Easter 2015.

Nestling snugly in the bay of St Malo and 70 miles from mainland Britain, the Channel Island of Guernsey is a heady mix of French and British cultures. This collision of lifestyles has created a unique environment, where familiarity is tempered by the unexpected, but where you'll always feel welcome. It's a very special place, one that leaves a lasting impression on all who visit.
