Vigor's Ketchikan Alaska facility was contracted to build Alaska Marine Highway System’s two newest ferries. The two ferries, Tazlina and Hubbard, are the first of their kind ever built in Alaska by Alaskans. They will serve citizens along the Lynn Canal route between Juneau, Haines and Skagway. Construction of both vessels began in October 2014. Tazlina was christened in 2018 and Hubbard is nearing completion.
Vigor built a new 136’ x 41’ x 26’ freezer longliner for Alaska Longline Company in its state-of-the-art shipbuilding facilities in Ketchikan, Alaska. The F/V Arctic Prowler is the first factory longliner to be made in Alaska.
E-Craft: Cutting-edge vessel design to navigate northern waters. The Susitna is a SWATH icebreaker, the first of its kind. She is a variable-draft vessel equipped with a complex, state-of-the-art hydraulic system that allows her to operate as either a SWATH or a shallow-draft landing craft. In deep-draft, SWATH mode, the Susitna can cruise at 17 knots in open water or at five knots in up to two feet of ice.
