The US Federal Transit Administration released Glosten’s initial design report for the 150-passenger all-electric Foil Ferry.

In this phase, naval architects Glosten and Bieker Boats enhanced the front of the fast ferry by incorporating a wave piercer, which aims to lessen the impact of swells in Puget Sound (Seattle), resulting in a smoother ride.

The report ( confirms the ferry’s design concept and highlights its significant environmental advantages and cost savings in comparison to conventional diesel-powered fast ferries.

The Foil Ferry Team is currently seeking funding for building the hull.
