New Ferry


A new Powell Lake ferry the "Charles Hall" will be designed by M.D.A. Marine Design Associates Ltd. of Victoria (B.C. Canada), the naval architect firm that drew up plans for the "John Atlantic Burr". Construction of the new vessel, which is expected to be almost identical to the 150-foot-long "Burr", should begin shortly.

The "Charles Hall" will become the second Pioneer Class ferry – an M.D.A. design that has been promoted by the Pioneer Ferry Group of British Columbia. This group consists of M.D.A. Marine Design Associates Ltd., Ulstein Maritime Ltd., B.C. Gas International Ltd. and Simpson Power Products Ltd.

The Pioneer ferry, with its simplicity of design, affords opportunity to construct segmentally, or in remote locations, where shipyard facilities are not always available. Construction supervision of the new "Charles Hall" will be by M.D.A.

With more than 22,000 vehicles annually making the 3.1 – mile, 26 minute long passage between Bullfrog and Hall’s Crossing on state Route 276 aboard "Burr", UDOT planners have been pushing for a sister ship to help with the growing demand. At over 6,000 feet, the Lake Powell crossing is, interestingly, probably the highest above sea level operating ferry service in the world.
