Video: ‘Bermudian’ Ferry Arrives In Boston

September 1, 2022

Three days after leaving the island, the ‘Bermudian’ ferry has arrived in Boston, safely completing the more than 700 mile ocean journey.

A Government spokesperson confirmed that “the Bermudian arrived at the Boston shipyard safely and on schedule.”

A Ministry of Transport spokesperson previously said the ferry was traveling to the Gladding-Hearn shipyard in Boston to undertake her scheduled refit.

“The repairs to The Bermudian are part of the Ministry’s budgeted infrastructure refit and replacement program for public transportation, which includes the Marine and Ports Services fleet of vessels.

“The Bermudian was built in 1988 and is well past her refit date. The departure from Bermuda for the North Atlantic crossing was scheduled to get ahead of the busiest part of the hurricane season and the winter months.

“The estimated cost is 4.5 million with a completion timeframe of 11 months. The estimated cost to build a new ferry/tender would be between 12-15 million and require increased manning requirements based on the number of passengers it would be carrying,” a spokesperson said.
