Trimline has completed the refurbishment of Condor Ferries’ newly purchased Condor Islander during wet dock in Poole, UK.
The project included the design and outfitting of all public spaces on the vessel, including the creation of the Brasserie, Kids Corner, Horizon Lounde, premium Club Lounge, Cove Restaurant and a new duty-free shop.
The Brasserie’s dark interior was replaced with a light and airy design which made use of half-glass, half-wall partitions, giving diners views of the outside. The design of the Cove Restaurant, meanwhile, was intended to display a French influence in its use of plants and foliage to provide added privacy. The Horizon Lounde offers recliner seats for passenger’s to rest in during the ferry’s 12-hour journey, while the Club Lounge features an electronic keypad entry system and a small self-serve food station.
Trimline also refurbished all 53 regular cabins, superior cabins and a suite. Other work included updates to the crew accommodation and public restrooms. Lobbies and alleyways were fitted with new carpets and additional seating, while pet-friendly areas were added to some cabins.
"Islander looks amazing and our team feels so proud to have carried out such a transformation,” said Matthew Shortt, project manager for Trimline. “The team at Condor were a pleasure to work alongside. Their professionalism and responsiveness allowed us keep on track with deadlines through all phases of the project."
“Islander looks outstanding and that is down to the design and craftsmanship of the Trimline team,” said Olly Futter, head of operations at Condor Ferries. “They were a pleasure to work alongside during the rebrand of Condor Islander. Their professionalism and responsiveness from start to finish was exemplary and allowed us to keep on track with deadlines through all phases of the project.”
