The Burrard Dry Dock Pier

The Peruvian naval training ship, the BAP Villavisencio, a frigate, will be docking at the Burrard Dry Dock.

Public tours of the BAP Villavisencio will be offered from 4pm to 8pm on Friday June 5th (this will be during the Friday Night Market).

BAP Villavisencio is the second out of four Carvajal-class frigates ordered by the Peruvian Navy in 1973. It was built by the Italian shipbuilder Cantieri Navali Riuniti at its shipyard in Riva Trigoso, Genoa. Delays in the building of the first ship of the class, BAP Carvajal, meant Villavisencio was commissioned first on 25 June 1979 with the pennant number FM-52.

Villavisencio is named after Vice Admiral Manuel Villavisencio (1840-1925) who fought in the War of the Pacific.
