Passenger Vessels

Shipbuilding - Vigor

Vigor teams are the go-to resource for passenger vessels in the region. We've built vessels ranging from 23-car ferries to 144-car ferries, along with complex vessels, including catamarans and variable draft landing crafts. Our teams work with steel and aluminum.

Vigor is the prime shipbuilder for Washington State Ferries, the largest ferry system in the United States and the third largest in the world. We built three award-winning 64-car ferries, under budget and ahead of schedule. Our expert shipbuilders have delivered two 144-car ferries to WSF and are working on a third at our Harbor Island facility. 

Our Vigor team in Alaska has delivered vessels including the innovative M/V Susitna and the efficient 23-car M/V Ken Eichner II ferry for Alaska customers. We are also building new vessels for the Alaska Marine Highway System.
