COMMODORE Clipper has been withdrawn from service for urgent repair work on a damaged seal.
Condor has said it believes the damage to the freight and passenger ship was caused by debris.
Condor Voyager, its high-speed passenger vessel, will operate additional services between Jersey, Guernsey and Poole on Monday 14 and Thursday 17 November.
Freight deliveries are being maintained to each Island by Commodore Goodwill and the Midas, a Finnish freighter the company has on charter.
Condor chief executive John Napton said the situation was ‘frustrating’, but that the company is working hard to minimise the impact of the Clipper’s withdrawal.
‘This is clearly unfortunate, however, we will do everything possible to limit the impact of this unexpected situation and recognise the inconvenience this may cause.
‘Over the next few days, we will be proactively contacting passengers booked to travel on Clipper and transferring them to alternative sailings and our freight teams will be busy with customers,’ he added.
The vessel is expected to return to service on Sunday 20 November.
