EBDG Completes Design
For Fisher Island
Seattle-based Elliott Bay Design
Group (EBDG) has recently completed the Contract Design for a fourth passen- ger-vehicle ferry for Fisher Island, Fla.
EBDG was contacted about an upgrade to the initial vessel design, which was completed by its predecessor firm, Nick- um & Spaulding, in 1980. Two vessels were built in 1981, M/V Eagle and M/V
Pelican — a third vessel, M/V Flamin- go, was constructed in 1987.
The fourth vessel to join the Fisher
Island fleet will vary from the original vessel design. According to EDBG Pro- ject Manager Will Nickum, design changes include an aluminum super- structure and bulwarks, enclosed spon- sons, revised engine room and pilot- house access, and an enlarged pilot- house. The vessel will feature a revised stack and mast configuration as well as relocated engine air intake.
With the design package complete.
EBDG will act as Construction Liaison on behalf of the Owner. In December 2001, Fisher Island Community Associ- ation signed a contract with Eastern
Shipbuilding Group of Panama City,
Fla. to construct the new vessel.
