Details
This Historic ex ferry is a unique opportunity, as an extremely spacious, single level, marina based, on water, character house boat. Built during WW2 on Heirisson Island in Perth, it has the honour of being the longest serving passenger ferry in Western Australia's history, 50 years from 1941 to 1991. It is estimated to have made 220,000 trips between City of Perth Barrack St and South Perth Mends St Jetties, carrying 11 million passengers across the Swan River, and to have covered the equivalent of 20 circumferences of the Earth. It had a major refit carried out in 2006,( see the pics ), and is now in need of an enthusiastic and caring new owner to take up the privilege. There is 84 square metres of main deck space, with an open plan layout, and 360 degree panoramic widows all round. This is a very rare opportunity. Contact Tom Blaxell at Hillarys to register your interest and / or to arrange a viewing.
