The ferry, which has yet to receive a name, was built by Damen Shipyards. It is currently known as Island 3.

Another Island-class ferry recently passed through the Panama Canal and two more are still under construction in Romania.

The third and fourth Island-class ferries will serve Campbell River and Quadra Island starting next year.
