The M/V Enetai has been delivered to Kitsap Transit. The photo at right shows the bow-loader moored at the Bremerton passenger-only ferry docks. 

A second bow-loader, the M/V Commander, is under construction and behind schedule due to disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time it is unclear when the second vessel will be delivered.

Rich Passage Beach Monitoring 

Briefing for Property Owners (Jan 29-30, 2020)

The Rich Passage Wake Research project was designed to investigate the feasibility of fast-ferry service through Rich Passage.  Conducted over more than a decade and a half, the study involved extensive data collection, computerized wave and wake modeling, development and testing of a prototype low-wake vessel and ongoing monitoring of the effects of fast-ferry operations on the shorelines of Rich Passage. The research project has collected periodic measurements of beaches before and during operation of the low-wake optimized vessels. In January 2020 Kitsap Transit and its research project leader met with Rich Passage property owners to discuss the results of measurements taken between 2004 and 2019.
