Queen of New Westminster
From Wikipedia:
The MV Queen of New Westminster is a Canadian roll-on, roll-off passenger ferry operated by BC Ferries.[1]
The vessel was built as a V class ferry in 1964, and retains most of the characteristics of the other V class ferries, but is not considered a V class ferry because of its improved powerplants. Its only remaining
sister ships are Burnaby Class ferries
Queen of Nanaimo and Queen of Burnaby, which are also not considered V class vessels because they don't have the additional car deck which was added to the four V
class ferries, and to the
Queen of New Westminster.
Though most of her sister ships were retired and sold off over the 2000s, she had a major refit of her passenger areas between late 2007 and early 2009, to prepare her for another ten to fifteen years of service.
