MV Islander Ferry

“It was four degrees outside with 45 mile-per-hour winds,” Jeff described. “I knew the Islander was coming into the harbor and I had 30 minutes to plant myself in the right spot on Packer’s dock. I was using a long lens and I waited for the boat to appear. When I started shooting I thought, ‘If only I could have one blink of sunlight.’ On the fourth shot out of five, it broke through the sea smoke.” The result is the classic shot of a classic vessel emerging from stormy skies and seas, mystical and majestic. It has become Jeff Serusa’s signature work.”

The MV Islander

Few boats elicit as many fond memories as the MV Islander. She was built in 1950 by Maryland Drydock Company and was a ferry for the Woods Hole, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket Steamship Authority, primarily on the Martha's Vineyard run, until March 5, 2007, when it was replaced with the new M/V Island Home, a new ferry which is both larger and faster than the "Islander". The Islander at its peak was able to transport over 700 passengers and 85 vehicles.

In 1975 M/V Islander was featured in the movie “Jaws.”
