Vigor Delivers Tokitae

Vigor Turns In Tokitae

Vigor Fab have delivered the Tokitae, the state’s newest ferry, to Washington State Ferry officials this week.

“Vigor Fab built a top-notch, first-in-class vessel on budget and on time to serve WSF’s peak summer season,” said Senior Vice President Joe Corvelli, head of Vigor Fab, Vigor Industrial’s ship building unit.

“The Tokitae is the result of all the skill, hard work and dedication our shipbuilding teams bring to the job every day.

These workers have built a vessel ready to serve the people of Washington for the next 60 years.”

The Tokitae is the first of three 144-car ferries currently planned. It will enter service this summer on the Clinton-Mukilteo route.

The second vessel, the Samish, is currently under construction at Vigor with delivery planned for early next year. State lawmakers have provided funding for a third ferry and construction is expected to start toward the end of this year.

“More than just a great boat, this ferry represents jobs for the more than 500 skilled maritime workers at Vigor and subcontractors around Puget Sound,” Mr. Corvelli said.

“The Tokitae is an excellent example of the high-quality, complex vessels we can build here in the Pacific Northwest.”

The public is invited to take a tour of the vessel before it goes into service at WSF’s community celebration and open house Sunday, June 8, at the Clinton ferry terminal.
