 Built by Alexander Stephen & Sons, Ltd., Linthouse, Glasgow, Scotland, in
1955, "Princess of Vancouver" is the largest, as well as the newest unit*
of the Canadian Pacific's British Columbia Coastal fleet.
Specially constructed as an all-purpose vessel she can handle simultaneously,
passengers, motor cars, trucks, buses and all classes of railway equipment,
including locomotives. At one time she can accommodate on her main deck
approximately 115 motor cars, or 65 large highway trucks, or 28 railway
box cars, on four tracks. In addition she can carry 1200 passengers.
She is driven  by four  National  seven  cylinder geared  diesel   units which
together develop a total of 5,600 shaft horsepower. Each pair of engines
drives  a   three   ton   propeller  through   a   reverse-reduction   gear   box.   AU
engines operate on heavy fuel, and any one engine can be stopped at any
time for servicing,  for adjusting  and  for annual  overhaul  purposes,  etc.,
and the service speed maintained by the other three engines.
The vessel is equipped with twin rudders and a Voith-Schneider propeller
installed in a forward 'thwartship tunnel in the bow which gives a powerful
lateral   thrust  to  the   bow  of  the   ship   to   facilitate   manoeuvering   when
berthing.
The overall length of the "Princess of Vancouver" is 416 feet, her breadth
63 feet and her carrying capacity 2,140 tons.  Her service speed is 15V2
knots fully loaded. Specially built piers at both Terminals provide for rapid
loading and unloading of this vessel over her stern.
