The third and fourth vessels will service the Campbell River-Quadra Island route and the last two will serve the Nanaimo Harbour-Gabriola Island route by 2022.

BC Ferries said replacing one larger ship with two smaller vessels will give customers more frequent service, increased passenger capacity per hour, reduced vehicle line-ups, improved safety and reduced congestion on local roads. The vessels will have the capacity to carry at least 47 vehicles and up to 300 to 450 passengers and crew depending on configuration.




somebody real important must live on gabriola island among those 4000 people for them to be so spoiled by ferry service.

According to the most recent project update by BCF in September they are being delivered on their own keel I believe and not on a transport ship. The deliveries have also been delayed..

 

Sea trials have been completed for the first two vessels and B.C. Ferries has accepted provisional delivery, said Capt. Jamie Marshall, B.C. Ferries vice-president of business development and innovation.

 

Next week, they are expected to be loaded into another vessel for the 40- to 45-day voyage to Canada.

 

“We anticipate getting them in time for Christmas or shortly thereafter,” Marshall said.

sounds like they will come by heavy lift (submersible or crane style)

Salish Raven is broken down off Swartz. Looks like they need get a crew in to move a larger ferry to make room so the Raven can be towed to berth by a tug.

We are dealing with issues with the Skeena being out for five months and the Cumberland taking its place. I think after today we will stop hearing people say “put the Raven on instead”...
