Temporary vessel to operate Kingston/Seattle fast ferry route

M/V Melissa Ann expected to go back into service Friday after being taken out for emergency repairs

Kitsap Transit’s Kingston to Seattle fast ferry service resumed Monday after being halted over the weekend due to the M/V Melissa Ann being taken out of service for repairs.

The 245-passenger San Juan Clipper, operated by Clipper Navigation, will temporarily operate the Kingston to Seattle route through Thursday evening, according to Kitsap Transit officials. The vessel can also accommodate up to eight bicycles.

On Friday, Sept. 27, the 172-passenger Melissa Ann is anticipated to go back into service, according to a press release. On Monday, Sept. 30, the 240-passenger M/V Finest is expected to return to service as the primary vessel on the route. The Finest went into a shipyard for repairs in early August.
