Passenger house of third SeaBus arrives at Victoria Shipyards

The SeaBus passenger shell arrives at Victoria Shipyards last week.

The SeaBus passenger shell arrives at Victoria Shipyards last week.

Thanks to the Victoria Shipyards, here is a photo of the aluminum SeaBus passenger house that was floated out to their yards last week. (It was the subject of the SeaBus photo opp from last Tuesday, if you managed to catch it.)

This is the main passenger house of the third SeaBus, the Burrard Pacific Breeze, which is being built out at Victoria Shipyards and should be finished by this fall. If you click the photo for a larger version, you can actually see the words “Burrard Pacific Breeze” written on the middle of the passenger house.

The passenger house actually arrived at the shipyards last Wednesday morning (Feb. 11, as the photo date indicates). The picture shows the house after being offloaded from the barge. From here, the passenger house will be moved into an indoor shop, the wheelhouse/HVAC modules will be mounted above the passenger house, and they’ll start outfitting the interior of the vessel.

Just thought you’d like the update!

    Well I was hoping for a sleek new design but I guess it works. Hopefully the inside looks nice.

    There can’t be a sleek design. They’d have to do a terminal reconfiguration.
    Or were you thinking of something else?

    Yea at least a nice curved front. Oh well. I always thought that an outside deck on the roof of the passenger house would be really cool for the warm summer days.
