The brand new Canadian Coast Guard vessel Sir John Franklin crashed into Victoria's breakwater on March 22, crumpling a side of its back-end.

The Seaspan-Shipyards-built Sir John Franklin was in sea trials when it crashed into Ogden Point breakwater.

The 64-meter vessel, was heading into port when it banged into the wall, damaging it as well as the breakwater.

"The Canadian Coast Guard's first of three new fisheries science vessels crashed on its first test run last week, raising concerns that the summer delivery date may not be met," said a press note from the Chamber of Shipping.

No injuries were reported, but the propeller and rudder were damaged. The vessels are being largely built in order, meaning the potential delay on the CCGS Sir John Franklin has the potential to affect the rest.

Seaspan Shipyards is currently two years behind schedule to deliver the CCGS Sir John Franklin but are still aiming for a June delivery.
