First of BC Ferries’ Super C-Class Vessel Launched

Tuesday, April 24, 2007
The first of BC Ferries’ three new Super C-class vessels, Coastal Renaissance, was officially launched at a special ceremony in Germany. Representatives from BC Ferries and the shipyard were on hand to witness this major event as the ship was launched into the water for the first time.

The Coastal Renaissance is scheduled to leave Germany for Canada in late October and is expected to be in service in early 2008. The second and third vessels will be arriving in B.C. in early and mid 2008. All vessels will be in service by mid summer of 2008.

The new Super C-class vessels will be the largest double-ended ferries in the world. They will carry 1650 passengers and 370 vehicles and will provide both British Columbians and tourists alike with a whole new west coast travel experience. The new vessels will have a service speed of 21 knots and they will be amongst the fastest and most fuel efficient vessels in the BC Ferries’ fleet.
