New Ferry for Whidbey Island

You will soon see a new ferry at the Mukilteo and Clinton docks. The new Tokitae will replace the Cathlamet which is moving down to the Vashon run. Mukilteo is getting the new boat because more cars travel on that route than any other in the system – more than 2 million last year, outgoing ferry chief David Moseley said. The Tokitae holds 144 cars, 20 more than the Cathlamet, so ferry waits should be shorter.

Nichols Brothers, a Whidbey Island boat builder, had a hand in the construction of the new boat.
