BC Ferries' Newest Class of Vessels

BC Ferries is building two new ferries to serve the Northern Gulf Islands and would like your input on their design. These vessels will be the first of up to seven possible vessels of this type to be built in the coming ten years as we continue to renew our fleet. All vessels will be standardized to achieve optimal procurement, low operating cost and interoperability. Standardized vessels help ensure consistent service across many routes.

Construction will commence in 2017 and the first vessel will enter service in approximately 2020.
