144 Car Ferries

Vigor is the leading ferry builder in the state of Washington, having delivered the last twelve ferries for Washington State Ferries (WSF), the largest ferry system in the United States. For the 144-car ferries, Tokitae, Samish, Chimacum and Suquamish, Vigor assembled a team of Washington State shipbuilders to participate in the successful completion of these pivotal vessels in the WSF Fleet. The four ferries were built consecutively between 2012 and 2018.
