Damen launches Ro-Pax pair for BC Ferries

Two 81-metre Ro-Paxes in a series for Canadian operator BC Ferries have been launched at Damen Shipyards Galati and are currently being fitted out ahead of entering service next year.

Once operational, the vessels will each be capable of carrying up to 300 passengers and crew and 47 vehicles.

The Ro-Paxes will serve the Northern Gulf Islands off the coast of Vancouver, replacing vessels that are now over fifty years old.
