About The Steamship Virginia V

The Virginia V is a 125-foot National Historical Landmark Steamship built in 1922 to carry passengers and freight between Vashon Island, Seattle and Tacoma in Washington state. She is the last operational wooden hull, steam-powered vessel of Puget Sound’s famed ‘Mosquito Fleet’, a predecessor to the Washington State Ferries system. The Virginia V is available for public charter and education and is operated by The Steamer Virginia V Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to promote Puget Sound maritime history through the restoration, preservation, operation and interpretation of the S.S. Virginia V. For more information visit
