British Columbia Ferries Evaluation


The British Columbia government has appointed a US marine engineering firm, John J McMullen Associates, to do a technical review of its troubled fast ferries program. The firm has been instructed to examine all non-financial aspects of the three-vessel project, which the government has admitted is now at least $100m over budget; a financial review is also under way. First of the three 250-vehicle, 1,000-passenger PacifiCats, built by a consortium of BC shipyards, was launched last June, but has yet to go into service. The catamarans are being built by a subsidiary of BC Ferries, Catamaran Ferries International. The second and third vessels in the series are under construction and all three are due to be in service by the year 2000.
