The Golden Gate Ferry’s high-speed, 450-passenger ferry, the Motor Vessel (MV) Mendocino, is in dry-dock at Bay Ship & Yacht’s Alameda shipyard for its periodic U.S. Coast Guard inspection.  While in dry-dock, the vessel will also undergo minor repairs.  The aluminum catamaran ferry was designed by International Catamaran in Australia and built by Nichols Brothers in Washington in 2001.  It is Golden Gate Ferry’s second high-speed catamaran operating on San Francisco Bay, and capable of speeds up to 36 knots provided by four water-jets.
