Intermediate Class Ferries (ICF) - New-Build Program

Fall/Winter 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 (liquefied natural gas and marine diesel), and will be replacing the Queen of Burnaby (Comox-Powell River) and the Queen of Nanaimo (Tsawwassen-Southern Gulf Islands) in 2016/2017.

More Project Milestones:


Public Input
In December 2014, BC Ferries representatives conducted public information sessions onboard the Queen of Burnaby and the Queen of Nanaimo, as well as in locations in Powell River and Richmond, to show the vessel designs to residents and customers of these routes who will be served by the new ICF vessels. Customer feedback was received at the information sessions, by mail and through online methods. This feedback will help BC Ferries finalize the design of passenger accommodation features.


Story Boards
BC Ferries presented story boards at each information session. For customers who were unable to attend any of these sessions, the story boards may be downloaded and viewed by clicking on the following link:
