New fast ferry might come to Quonset

Posted: Updated:

There could be a new high-speed ferry service soon.

Rhode Island Fast Ferry has applied for a license to operate a ferry from Quonset Point to Block Island.

Officials hope to attract more tourists to Block Island. And they say the Quonset Point location avoids all the heavy summer beach traffic.

The owner of Rhode Island Fast Ferry plans to invest $7 million to build a new catamaran for the service.
