North Carolina

  • The North Carolina Department of Transportation has awarded a contract "in excess of a million dollars" to Offshore Shipbuilding of Palatka, Fla., for the construction of a 250-passenger/ vehicle ferry.

    The contract is the second for a ferry awarded to Offshore Shipbuilding since October 1982, when the firm launched construction on a $4.5 million, 1,200-passenger "cruise ship" ferry for service in the State of New York.

    Anthony M. Tenore, vice presdent and general manager of Offshore Shipbuilding, said his yard was low bidder among "25 major shipyards" that wanted the North Carolina ferry job.

    The vessel will be of standard design by the North Carolina Department of Transportation, Ferry Division, with detail work by Bold Craft Engineering of Jacksonville, Fla. The design calls for an open vehicle deck extending the length of the ferry with two 40-foot passenger cabins located amidships on both sides. An overhead deck spanning the two cabins will accommodate the pilothouse.

    Overall length will be 129.6 feet, with a beam of 40 feet, and a 9-foot depth to make the ferry serviceable in various rivers and sounds in North Carolina. Loading and offloading will be possible at both ends but unlike standard double-ender ferries, the vessel will have propulsion at only one end in the form of twin Caterpillar 3412 diesels.

    Mr. Tenore said construction will begin early in January with delivery scheduled for April of 1984.
