A “Quiet” Ferry

A “Quiet” Ferry

Elliott Bay Design Group (Seattle) completed the contract design for the new 197-foot passenger and vehicle ferry that will service Prince of Wales Island (Alaska). They have also served as the Owner's Representative throughout vessel construction at Dakota Creek Industries in Anacortes (Washington, USA). Since the launching, the vessel has been receiving finishing touches with sea trials set to begin in November.

Special attention was given to the hull design acoustics, with the goal of providing passengers a comfortable ride. To help make this goal a reality, Elliott Bay Design Group utilized computer modeling and its expertise in seakeeping analysis to optimize the hull form. The vessel is fitted with twin Caterpillar 3512B diesel engines, providing 3,000 HP, which will drive two four-bladed CP Hundestad propellers through Reintjes reduction gears. The design also features an electric bow thruster, a bulbous bow, and rolling chocks to reduce motion and improve passenger comfort.
