The new ferry which links downtown Victoria to Vancouver hit another snag. Its relaunch was delayed until early 2018.

According to V2V Vacations they were contacting impacted passengers and offering a refund, later date re-booking or transportation via B.C. Ferries and B.C. Ferries connector.

The call was made Saturday morning, December 23 to delay the December 27 relaunch because sea trials are still underway for safety standards of Transport Canada and V2V.

Due to mechanical issues the ship, licensed to hold up to 200 passengers, was taken out of service in August with one of the engines onboard.

A representative said that they had already replaced both engines and were working to relaunch in the first 2 weeks of January, and that due to the ship being out of service for so long extensive trials were required.
