Three new Emerald class ferry vessels set to service customers on the F1 Circular Quay-Manly route will be named after popular Sydney Harbour beaches Transport for NSW announced today.
The three new vessels, which are expected to carry customers on the F1 route around the middle of the year, will be named Fairlight, Clontarf and Balmoral.
“Sydney is known for its beautiful beaches so it’s fitting these new ferries will bear the names of some of our most well-known harbour beach hang outs,” Transport for NSW Acting Deputy Secretary Howard Collins said.
“The current fleet servicing Manly Wharf is named after Northern Beaches so the new names are in keeping with the beaches theme, only this time the focus is on harbour beaches rather than ocean beaches.”
With their main structures complete and engines and all components installed, the three Emerald ferries are currently undergoing a final fit out in Port Macquarie.
The new generation vessels, which are fully accessible, more energy efficient and cheaper to run, will allow for more weekly services to be added to the busy F1 route to better suit the needs of customers.
