BC Ferries’ newest vessel, the Salish Orca just finished being wrapped in a massive decal over in Poland adorning the beautiful artwork of Coast Salish artist, Darlene Gait. The Salish Orca will be BC Ferries’ first natural gas powered ferry.
Depicted with optimistic colour and energy, Darlene Gait's pod of orcas appears as a family moving through the water. Below is a link to the 1.13 minute time-lapse video showing the application of the massive decal onto the Salish Orca.
“Besides the incredible artistic imagery that the wrap provides, it also has valuable maintenance properties by protecting the coating on the vessel,” said Mark Wilson, BC Ferries’ Vice President of Engineering. “This has been aptly demonstrated by the decals on the Coastal Class vessels.”
The decal was produced by Ampco Grafix of Coquitlam, British Columbia. Ampco is an award winning large format graphics printer.
The Salish Orca will depart Poland this fall under its own power. The vessel will sail by the Canary Islands, through the Panama Canal and up the west coast of North America. The Salish Orca is expected to arrive in B.C. by the end of the year.
