State begins ferry replacement process

KODIAK — The Alaska Marine Highway System has begun looking for a consultant to design the ferry that will replace the Tustumena.

The estimated cost of a ship to replace the 49-year-old Tustumena is between $175 million and $210 million.

While getting a replacement for the Tustumena is a priority, AMHS will not be rushing the design process. It is estimated that the design of the new ferry will take around 18 months.
