Fourth Salish class ferry delivered to Canada’s BC Ferries

The Remontowa shipyard at Gdansk, Poland delivered its fourth Salish-class dual-fuel ferry, Salish Heron, to Canada’s BC Ferries earlier in 2022.

The new vessel is intended for operation among the Southern Gulf Islands where she will replace the 1965-built diesel-powered Mayne Queen.

Like her earlier delivered sisters, Salish Eagle, Salish Orca and Salish Raven, the new double-ended vessel is capable of carrying 138 vehicles along with 600 passengers and crew while running on LNG or ultra-low sulphur fuel.

The new vessel sailed via the Panama Canal to reach BC Ferries’ fleet maintenance yard at Richmond, BC for application of the ‘Salish’ exterior artwork this winter, a journey of 10,440 nautical miles.
