Ferries have long been a speciality of Ferguson's - supplying key UK ferry companies with state-of-the art vessels for over a hundred years. The first of these was back in 1908 - a vehicle/passenger ferry for the Clyde Navigation Trust.

In more recent times we have been privileged to supply ferries to Caledonian McBrayne/CMAL, Western Ferries and Red Funnel.

In 2013, Ferguson’s launched the 'MV Hallaig' the world's first Hybrid Ferry for Caledonian McBrayne, following  up with two more Hybrids and now continuing on the innovation trail by starting the construction of two new 100m LNG Ferries, also for Caledonian McBrayne.
