The M/V Fairweather is one of the newest vessels of the Marine Highway fleet.
Built by Derecktor Shipyards of Bridgeport, Connecticut at a cost of $36 million,
she began service in summer, 2004. The Fairweather's designer is Nigel Gee & Associates (NGA),
a British naval architecture firm that has many years of high-speed ship design and build
experience. The Fairweather is powered by four diesel engines and four water jets.
The hull form is a 235-foot catamaran that has been shown to provide the highest transport efficiency of any high-speed ferry of this size.
