The State of Alaska is well on its way to building two new Alaska Class Ferries. The keels were laid at the Vigor Shipyard in Ketchikan on December 13, 2014. The ferries are scheduled for delivery in the spring and fall of 2019. The Alaska Class Ferry will serve Juneau, Haines, and Skagway and operate as a day boat, with the second one based in Prince William Sound. The vessels will be 280 feet long and carry 300 passengers and 53 vehicles.
