Tender Details

New Car Ferry for Lake Windermere

CCC are seeking to award a tender for the design, build, launch, installation, commissioning,
and acceptance of the new ferry, and associated elements. The land-locked nature of Lake
Windermere introduces several requirements and constraints specific to the new ferry. The
new ferry is to have increased car capacity, increased operating capability, improved
passenger facilities and is to be fully electrically powered from onboard batteries. The new
ferry is to be a cable ferry; propelled by pulling herself along a pair of steel wire cables
installed between the two slipways. The east slipway is located at Ferry Nab, Bowness-on-
Windermere and the west slipway at Far Sawrey and the ferry links the two parts of the
B5285 on either side of Lake Windermere. See Tender documents for further information.
