North Carolina Ferry System
RO-RO/Passenger Ferries

The North Carolina Ferry System has fitted PMC products on 20 vessels.   These products consists of PMC propulsion telegraphs, alarm annunciator panels, navigation light control panels, tachometers and propulsion control heads.


  • In 1947, the North Carolina Highway Commission purchased the ferry operation of T.A. Baum, who operated a route that ran across Croatan Sound and linked Manns Harbor and Roanoke Island.  This became the first route of the North Carolina Ferry System.
  • Cape Hatteras Lighthouse located in Dare County, was built in 1869.  It stands 225 feet tall and has a signal visible for 20 miles.  The Atlantic Ocean and the Pamilco Sound are illuminated by this light.  The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is the tallest lighthouse in America and has 268 steps inside to the top.  It warns travellers of the area known as the "Graveyard of the Atlantic."
  • After 129 years of protecting mariners from treacherous shoals, the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is getting some protection from the sea by being moved 2,900 feet from its original position.
