Glosten has announced the completion of a 150-passenger-only hybrid ferry design for Kitsap Transit, a public transportation agency based in Bremerton, Washington.

“Glosten has designed a modern and efficient passenger vessel that will meet the demands of our riders,” said Kitsap Transit Executive Director John Clauson. “As a public agency, at the end of the day, it’s all about the people. We are confident that this new addition to our fleet will serve the people of the Puget Sound region for many years to come.”

Glosten Project Manager and Design Lead William Moon, PE commented on the propulsion system of the 70′ vessel. “Outfitted with a battery-diesel hybrid propulsion system, the vessel will operate like a Prius – no more diesel exhaust and noise while passengers load and unload.”
