At the shipyard named after B. E. Butoma in Kerch, the keel of the ferry “Petropavlovsk” was laid. It is assumed that the new ship will connect Kamchatka with the ports of the Far East.

The initiative to build a ferry for Kamchatka several years ago was proposed by the governor of the region Vladimir Ilyukhin. According to the press service of the regional government, there have been no regular shipping between the Far Eastern harbors for about 30 years. With the help of the new ship, they plan to establish communication with the ports of Sakhalin and Primorye.

The type of future vessel was chosen not only by officials, but also by residents of Kamchatka. An online voting was organized for them, which showed that the region needed a passenger-and-freight ferry.

The cost of the new ship will be about 1,4 billion rubles. To build the ferry is planned already in 2021. At the same time, a ship is under construction, which will connect Kamchatka and the Kuril Islands.
