Martha's Vineyard Ferry at Fairhaven, MA
The SSA took delivery of the M/V M.V. from Atlantic Marine, Jacksonville, Florida in 1993. She is assigned to Woods Hole - Martha's Vineyard service and is classed as a conventional, diesel, twin-screw, passenger/vehicle ferry. A quick look reveals a basic similarity in hull dimensions, speed and capacities to the 1974 vintage M/V NANTUCKET. Her 230? length, 60? beam, 3000 HP EMD powerplant, 14-knot speed, and vehicle deck load generally mirror the older vessel. There the similarity ends, however, as more modern amenities and necessities such as improved ADA access, interior and exterior seating upgrades, interior passenger space size, Free Wi-Fi internet access and enhanced maneuvering characteristics make the M/V M.V. a more passenger friendly vessel.
