Vigor has assembled a team of leading Puget Sound shipyards to build new, large ferries for Washington State Ferries (WSF), the largest ferry system in the United States. The Tokitae, the first of three144-car ferries, was delivered in June 2014. The Samish was delivered in April 2015. Vigor teams began working on the third ferry, the Chimacum, at the end of 2014 and delivery is scheduled for early 2017.
