Step aboard a First Fleet class ferry and you’ll boarding a Sydney Harbour icon.
Ordered in the 1980s from Carrington Slipways, Tomago, they were named after ships of the First Fleet and delivered between 1984 and 1986. Originally intended to replaced the wooden K and Lady class ferries and operate services on the Parramatta River, they generated too much wash.
In 2006/07, the class were repowered with MTU Series 60 engines. Today, all nine remain in service with Harbour City Ferries.
