Each new ferry carries 144 vehicles. The Olympic Class design is based on the Issaquah class, the most versatile vessel in our fleet.
Two of four are in service, the third will be complete in 2017.
This third vessel, the Chimacum was running sea trials Friday morning off of Saltwater Park. Our Salish welcoming figures were there to meet her.
Chimacum will replace an older vessel on the Seattle / Bremerton route in late spring 2017.
