Damen Road Ferry 8117 E3 "Island Discovery" and "Island Aurora"

Last February the first two Island Class Ferries were handed over to BC Ferries in Victoria, Canada. During the naming ceremony on February 19, the names of the vessels – Island Discovery and Island Aurora – were revealed for the first time. The two ferries, based on Damen’s 81-metre Road Ferry 8117E3 design and built at Damen Shipyards Galati in Romania, will serve the Powell River-Texada Island and Port McNeill-Alert Bay-Sointula routes respectively. Four additional Island Class Ferries of this design are under construction at Damen’s yard in Galati.
