The Washington Marine Group of Companies has sold three PacifiCat ferries to buyer, Abu Dhabi Mar.
The terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.
A heavy lift deep-sea ship will be used to transport the three aluminium catamaran-style ferries from Canada’s Vancouver Harbour.
The first ferry is scheduled for departure in August.
The Washington Marine Group purchased the ferries in 2003 for $19.8m.
Designed to revitalise British Columbia’s shipbuilding sector, the PacifiCats were constructed at a $454m cost for BC Ferries in the late 1990s.
