She is named for Chief Sealth.
The Sealth underwent cabin rebuilding in the Fall of 2006, and is currently in service on the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth route. The Sealth is currently the #2 vessel on the route. Earlier she was taken out of service due to a seam needing weld repairs.
On November 7 2012, the Sealth was serving the Bremerton run when a hole four feet under the waterline at No. 2 end port side was discovered.  The ferry was pulled from service in the day and the leak was fixed a week later at Dakota Shipyards of Anacortes. This caused the Salish to be put on the run, causing a loss of 30% percent of the run's regular car capacity.
