Metal Shark completes newbuilding orders for NYC Ferry with delivery of final vessel

Metal Shark boats has completed its four-year run of production development for Hornblower Cruises subsidiary NYC Ferry with the delivery of the final new vessel to be added to the fleet.

Time Traveler is the twelfth 25-metre, 150-passenger vessel to be built by Metal Shark for NYC Ferry since April 2017, when deliveries to the same customer began. In that timeframe, Metal Shark’s Franklin, Louisiana yard also produced ten 29-metre, 350-passenger vessels for the operator, for a total of 22 ferries for the NYC Ferry service.

In July 2016, Metal Shark was one of two builders originally selected to build passenger vessels for the then-new NYC Ferry service. The other builder, Horizon Shipbuilding in Bayou la Batre, Alabama, was acquired by Metal Shark in 2018.
