SeaLink Travel Group has added a second state of the art $2.6 million catamaran to its Captain Cook Cruises fleet, with the launch today in Sydney of Mary Reibey.
The new generation, 24metre Rocket catamaran, will join her sister vessel Elizabeth Cook, which was launched in November 2013, on Sydney harbour. Like Elizabeth Cook she is eco-friendly, fuel efficient and equipped with the latest technologies to reduce her carbon footprint.
The Mary Reibey, named after the astute and successful New South Wales business woman who is featured on the Australian twenty-dollar note, has been designed to balance efficiency with ruggedness, allowing her to operate in all corners of Sydney Harbour and beyond.
The Mary Reibey is contracted to Harbour City Ferries (Sydney Ferries) from June 2, 2014 and will be providing ferry charter services.
The two level catamaran has a main passenger cabin with seats for 116 passengers and a further 31 seats located on the lower outside deck. Upstairs an open upper deck has seating for 51 passengers, providing ample space for passengers to stand and view the sights.
SeaLink has commissioned two more state-of-the-art catamarans due to arrive in Sydney Harbour in June and December2014.
