A new passenger-and-freight ferry will be built to cross the Ozernaya channel in the Ust-Kamchatsky district. It will replace a vessel that has been in operation for about 47 years.

According to the press service of the Ministry of Transport and Road Construction of the Kamchatka Territory, the keel has already been laid in the base of the auto-passenger ferry. And the Livadia Shipyard in Primorye began supplying equipment and machinery necessary for construction.

The length of the new ferry will be 32 meters, and the width - 10 meters. The ship will be able to reach speeds of up to nine knots, transporting up to 50 passengers and seven passenger cars. The crew will be four people.
