Champion Ferry Vessel

As part of a continued effort to invest in Boston-area water transportation, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) welcomed a new high-speed catamaran ferry, Champion, to its fleet with support from STV. The firm developed technical and commercial specifications for the procurement as well as support of the bidding and selection processes, contract management, engineering, design, and shipyard inspection services.

Champion is the first new passenger ferry vessel procured by the MBTA and will be followed by another STV-supported ferry procurement, the Glory. The ferry will provide service between Hingham, Hull, Logan Airport and downtown Boston.
