Volkswagen ferries vehicles with Condor

Posted on: 10/05/2018

Condor Ferries has turned to a Poole-based automotive company to help boost its port-based fleet.

The ferry operator, which has been connecting the Channel Islands with the UK since 1964, has taken delivery of three Volkswagen Sharan people carriers from Breeze Volkswagen.

The vehicles will support the company’s existing minibus service, transporting foot passengers from the terminal to the ferries as well as assisting with daily port activity.

Lizzie Mould, shore operations associate at Condor Ferries, said: “In addition to supporting our passengers, the vehicles will provide a vital support for our port-based team.  The vehicles will be split between our Jersey, Guernsey and Poole ports.

“We have previously struggled to get a supplier to source Jersey and Guernsey registered vehicles however, the Breeze Volkswagen Corporate team effortlessly addressed our needs and provided an excellent service throughout.”

Neil Carlton, business development manager from Breeze Volkswagen, said: “The Volkswagen Sharan interior allows for six passengers and can be reconfigured to create more space for carrying goods. This versatility is ideal for Condor’s needs.

“We are delighted to have established this partnership and look forward to strengthening the relationship over the coming years.”

Breeze Volkswagen is a family-owned and managed independent retailer specialising in new and Volkswagen Das WeltAuto used car range. Established in 2000 Breeze also provides Volkswagen servicing and parts in addition to its dedicated fleet division as well as Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle Van Centres in Poole, Southampton and Portsmouth.
