CTMA, Bygg nr. ? ved Davie Yards, RoPax "Jean Lapierre"


Staff member
Québec Davie shipyard has been appointed by Transport Canada to design and build new generation Ropax for Magdalen Island (Les îles de la Madeleine). The ferry -to be delivered in 2027- will replace the legendary MADELEINE.

The new ship will be named JEAN LAPIERRE and I found a profile design of the ship concept. Since the building process is really slow in North America I am not sure if this will be the final design, but it does give a good idea of the final thing.

Capacity wise the new vessel seems smaller than the MADELEINE II (former Viking ADCC ; VILLA DE TEROR) which has been bought by Transport Canada to ensure smooth transition between former MADELEINE and upcoming JEAN LAPIERRE.

I can see what seems to be a gas mast signifying that LNG may be considered. Otherwise the design is simple with one main deck where all common areas are concentrated and a top deck dedicated to few cabins as well as crew.
