Intermediate Class Ferries (ICF)- New-Build Program

Fall 2014

BC Ferries has recently completed preliminary designs for vehicle and passenger decks on the upcoming Intermediate Class Ferries. As previously announced, these vessels are being built with dual fuel capability (liquified natural gas and marine diesel), and will be replacing the Queen of Burnaby (Comox-Powell River) and Queen of Nanaimo (Tsawwassen-Southern Gulf Islands) in 2016/2017.


Public Information Sessions: December 6 to 11, 2014
BC Ferries representatives conducted public information sessions onboard the Queen of Burnaby and Queen of Nanaimo, as well as in locations in Powell River and Richmond, to show the vessel designs to residents and customers of the routes who will be served by these new ICF vessels.
