The MV Cecelia Ann is a passenger ferry vessel built in 2003 by Austal, a global ship builder and defense prime contractor in Mobile, Alabama.
Originally, the vessel was named Zephyr and was a part of the Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises fleet where it transported passengers between the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
In 2017, Zephyr was purchased by Cross Sound Ferry Services, Inc. It was renamed to Cecelia Ann for Adam Wronowski’s daughter. Adam Wronowski is one of the owners of the Cross Sound Ferry.
The MV Cecelia Ann measures 143 feet long (43.5 meters). It has a service speed of 30 knots and capacity for 600 passengers in total.
Amenities on the Cecelia Ann include two climate-controlled passenger cabins, full outdoor sundeck and viewing space, snack bar offering food, cocktails and beer and a Cross Sound Ferry themed gift shop.
The MV Cecelia Ann is one of two ferry vessels that perform lighthouse cruises in addition to regular passenger ferry service on the Cross Sound Ferry and Block Island Express ferry routes.
