The vendor has instructed us to sell and has dramatically reduced the price and invites offers based on a “As is Where is” sale. Interested parties are invited to inspect the vessel located in Gladstone.

This 17.49 metre ferry is commercially registered in 1D for 95 passengers but requires a new survey to operate.

The passenger ship was previously used by Hayman Island in the Whitsundays for passenger transfers and tourism duties but is now surplus to the Island’s needs due to the arrival of new vessels.

She delivers a versatile design with boarding from both rear platforms as well as through access doors located on both sides of the vessel. The main deck offers internal air conditioning with high-back seating for 36 people, plus two serving areas with refrigeration and running water. The upper deck offers a mix of internal airconditioned seating for 12 plus external seating for 30 people. All internal areas are carpeted. There are male and female toilets.

The vessel requires work for a new AMSA survey and is well priced. Call for additional information or to arrange an inspection.
