The M/V Issaquah is an Issaquah 130 Class ferry operated by Washington State Ferries.

The ferry spent her early years on the Seattle/Bremerton route, then shifted around the system for a time, before being placed on the Southworth/Vashon/Fauntleroy route, where she has been pretty much ever since.[3]
