Guernsey in a 4m RIB

By the title you might think I'm crazy. I'm not: I want to take my RIB over there on the ferry for a weeks fun at the end of September. Been loads of times before to see family, but have always flown.

Now, here's my question. Is there any other way of getting a car and a rib on a trailer to Guernsey (with 3 people) without paying 600 to Condore ferries? This seems like a ridiculious amount to me and I assume its becasue they have a monopoly. We've even looked at crossing the chanel to Calais, driving to St Malo and getting the ferry over from there. That's just as expensive though.

Certainly is.

Go by sea in the boat, and rent a car over there
