WSDOT: Time-Lapse Video of Tokitae Ferry Construction

The video captures construction of Washington’s newest Olympic Class ferry, 144-car Tokitae, from the start of construction through summer 2013.

Vigor Industrial began construction of the Tokitae in March 2012 at the company’s Seattle shipyard. Vigor fabricated major modules and assembled them, along with the vessel ends made by Jesse Engineering in Tacoma, into a complete hull.

The shipyard hit a major milestone in March 2013, when they moved the superstructure of the Tokitae onto the hull while both structures were in floating drydocks. The 1100-ton superstructure was fabricated at Nichols Brothers Boat Builders on Whidbey Island. The shipyard hit another milestone in July, when it floated the vessel out of drydock to finish final outfitting pier side.

The Tokitae is scheduled for delivery to Washington State Ferries in early 2014.
