Mechanical Issues Cause Emerald Isle Ferry To Be Out Of Service

Posted: Updated:

Due to mechanical issues the Emerald Isle Ferry to Beaver Island is temporarily out of service again.

The Emerald Isle goes from Charlevoix to Beaver Island and back.

The ferry was taken out of service after a routine oil sample during mechanical testing came back not up to standards.

The Emerald Isle's port engine was rebuilt last month after the ferry was out of service from June 25th to July 18th. 

The Beaver Islander Ferry is still running in the meantime, and the Emerald Isle is expected to be back up and running in five to seven days.
