Pasha Hawaii and the Port of Oakland celebrated the arrival of MV Janet Marie to the Port of Oakland with a christening ceremony, marking the company’s second Liquified Natural Gas (“LNG”)-powered container ship to call the Bay Area. The Oakland Seaport is considered the gateway for containerized ocean cargo shipments in Northern California. Janet Marie is the second of two new ‘Ohana Class, 774-foot LNG-powered container ships built at AmFELS. The company’s first ‘Ohana Class vessel, MV George III, began service on August 17, 2022, becoming the first LNG-powered container ship to call the Bay Area.                                                                    “These ships represent the legacy of my parents and the company they helped build from humble beginnings in San Francisco,” said George Pasha, IV, President and CEO, Pasha Hawaii. “The success of our family business has always been based on ingenuity, striving for excellence and doing what is right for our customers and the communities where we live and work. Both George III and Janet Marie provide our customers with best-in-class vessels, while setting the standard for environmental stewardship when it comes to ship design and construction. Today is a very proud moment for the entire Pasha team and our family.”
