Passengers traveling on the Washington State Ferries Sunday, Feb. 2, will be boarding the “M/V Russell Wilson” or crossing Puget Sound on the “M/V Richard Sherman” as Gov. Jay Inslee has directed the vessels be named in honor of the Seattle Seahawks.

“We couldn’t be more proud of our Seahawks as they represent our state in the Super Bowl,” said Inslee. “We’ve already raised the 12th Man flag on each ferry, and this honorary name change is one more way for us to show our appreciation.”

 The team has counted on a strong running game to carve out a path to victory. Now fans will be able to ride the “M/V Marshawn Lynch” and go #Beastmode roundtrip from the Kitsap Peninsula.

“Although the name change is symbolic, we think it is a fun way to show our support and give fans a chance to cheer on the ‘Hawks before they pull into port,” said Assistant Transportation Secretary David Moseley.

The Washington State Department of Transportation recognizes the Seahawks achieved success this season by working as a team. WSDOT has 22 vessels in its fleet and has named each one after the Seahawks starting offense and defense team members.

M/V Cathlamet: “M/V Malcom Smith”
