CONDOR must invest millions of pounds in the not-too-distant future to replace its fast ferries, which its new chief executive officer has said are heading towards the end of their lifespan.

James Fulford, pictured, said now was the perfect time for Condor to ask Guernsey residents what type of service they wanted, ahead of its major investment.

Mr Fulford said it would cost Condor £5m. a year to maintain its three current high-speed ferries as they came towards the end of their 'useful' life.

He also confirmed that, in order to invest in new vessels for the future, Condor wanted to secure a long-term agreement with the Channel Islands.

It currently has a five-year extension in place, due to start in January 2014.
