$12M contract for 2 new King County water taxis

BELLINGHAM (AP) — The All American Marine shipyard in Bellingham has won a $12 million contract from King County to build two new water taxis.

The 250-passenger catamarans will replace two smaller leased vessels on routes between downtown Seattle and West Seattle and Vashon Island.

The Bellingham Herald reports the first ferry should be completed in early 2015 and the second later that year.

About 80 percent of the cost is funded by the Federal Transit Administration.
