Ferry withdrawn for new propeller

Condor 10
The damaged propeller was removed earlier this month in France

A ferry operating between the Channel Islands and France is being taken out of service again to complete ongoing repair work.

Condor 10, which sails from Jersey and Guernsey to St Malo will be withdrawn from service on 29 June and is expected to be out of the water for three days.

A new propeller shaft will be fitted to one of her four engines in Cherbourg.

Condor Ferries said it will operate additional services with Condor Express to minimise disruption to passengers.

Since the propeller shaft failed last month, Condor 10 has been running on just three of its four engines.

She was taken out of service earlier this month to have the damaged propeller removed.
