Sea transportation on the eastern coast of Kamchatka is resumed

After a 20-year hiatus, shipping resumes along the eastern coast of Kamchatka. Governor of the Kamchatka Territory Vladimir Ilyukhin inspected the Vasily Zavoiko cargo-passenger ship, which is already at the port of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The vessel is planned to be used for the transportation of goods and passengers along the eastern coast of the Kamchatka Territory. This was announced today by the press service of the government of the Kamchatka Territory.

Transportation will be carried out by the cargo-passenger ship "Vasily Zavoiko". The regional authorities are finalizing the purchase of the vessel. It is planned that it will go on the line Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky - Komandory and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky - Tilichiki in June. The ship will make its maiden voyage in early June to Apuku.

It is planned that the Government of the Kamchatka Territory will subsidize passenger transportation for the residents of Kamchatka, just as it does for air travel within the region. The cost of a sea fare ticket will be comparable to a plane ticket. However, it will be the sea transportation that will be possible for those passengers who do not want to depend on the flight weather and the state of the runways of the remote territories of the peninsula. The ship will walk not only in the spring-summer navigation, but also in the winter period.

VASILY ZAVOYKO IMO: 9703801, Russian flag, built in 2013 at the Sretensky shipyard in the Trans-Baikal Territory and is designed to carry 34 passengers and 200 tons of cargo at the same time. Displacement 650 tons. Length 46 meters, width 9 meters, draft 2,4 meters. Maximum recorded speed 10,2 knots.
