Super C-Class Ferry
In the period from spring 2007 to spring 2008, work was completed on three vessels of the type Super “C” Class for a new customer of the FSG shipyard.
The owner is the Canadian shipping company B.C. Ferry Services ( www.bcferries.com ), based inVictoria,Canada. These vessels can carry 370 vehicles and 1,650 passengers. The “Coastal Renaissance”, the “Coastal Inspiration” and the “Coastal Celebration” operate in the GeorgiaStrait on the routes Departure Bay-Horseshoe Bay, Duke Point-Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay-Tsawwassen.
The vessels are also being used for outdoor advertising for the Winter Olympics inVancouverin 2010 and have had a large motif applied for the first time using special film. For this reason, the preservation work had of course also to be of good quality and visually attractive.
