New Ship for B.C. Ferries

Tuesday, January 17, 2006
B.C. Ferries took delivery of the newest addition to its fleet yesterday as the MV John Atlantic Burr, a 20-year-old vessel from Utah, arrived in Vancouver. The ship, which will be able to carry 300 passengers and 35 cars, cost $200,000 to buy from the State of Utah, and an additional $4.5 million to covert it to B.C. Ferries' needs. According to the company, spending the money on the Victoria- designed ship was cheaper than building a new ferry, which would have cost $20 million. The MV John Atlantic Burr will now be getting ready for daily duty and will begin service in the summer. (Source: http://vancouver.24hrs.ca)
