Tender out for 2018 inter-Channel Island ferry service

UPDATE 4:

“Condor Ferries has withdrawn their bid as well earlier this month. CEO of Condor Ferries, Paul Luxon, commented to ITV News, “The four months taken during the procurement phase has meant that we have been unable to commit to...two ships and are aware that they are in the process of being deployed elsewhere. Furthermore, the terms of the tender have also changed as the original one-year trial has become five years and we remain concerned that there is only a very short timeframe available to prepare and launch the new service. Regrettably, therefore we were unable to submit a tender bid and withdrew from the process earlier this month.”
