PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - The high-speed ferry that’ll travel between Portland, Maine, and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, this summer has successfully completed sea trials.

Bay Ferries Limited says the ship, dubbed The Cat, is now headed to Portland after extensive renovations and upgrades in Charleston, South Carolina. The company says the successful sea trials were completed this past week.

The Cat is 349 feet long and can carry as many as 866 passengers.

The vessel, which is expected to enter service on June 15, will replace the Nova Star, a ferry that had operated the Portland-Nova Scotia run since 2014.
