About HD Ferries

Following the cessation of the Emeraude Lines ferry service in 2005, the States of Jersey, Guernsey and the French region of Brittany have sought an additional operator to meet the demand for ferry travel between the Channel Islands and France.

HD Ferries was one of the companies approached and after 9 months of investigation and negotiations are pleased to announce a new ferry service linking the ports of St Helier (Jersey), St Peter Port (Guernsey) and St Malo (France). The service is designed to provide a high speed, no frills value for money service for both passengers and freight.

The service is due to commence operations on 15th March 2007 subject to completion of the necessary States regulatory approvals. Tickets have gone on sale from today at www.hdferries.com, as well as through several websites and major agents based in the Channel Islands and France.

The vessel, named HD1, is an Incat K series high speed fastcraft with a service speed of 38 knots and an average crossing time of 1 hour on each route. The HD1 is capable of carrying up to 400 passengers plus 100 cars or 70 cars and 10 x 8 metre freight units. There is a spacious lounge onboard as well as a duty free shop, bar and light refreshment area.

HD1 will provide a daily summer service starting and ending in Jersey from March to September and a three times per week winter service. With six segments per day the residents of the Channel Islands and St Malo will have a wide range of additional options to complement the existing Condor services.

The 0715 sailing from Jersey to St Malo will also allow customers to connect with the mid morning TGV and be in Paris for lunch time!
