Ocean State – Fast Ferry

Ocean State - Fast Ferry 2

Ocean State is a Crowther 65′ fast ferry built by MRI to service Rhode Island, running a route between Providence and Newport. It ran for four years until they stopped. They didn’t service the commuting crowd. They kept the boat in Providence and left at 9:00 am for Newport. Who wants to do that? Unfortunately the route can be driven in a car almost as fast, where for most ferry routes there is no other way to cross the water.

It is still somewhere ferrying people.
