ALL ABOARD NEW FERRY

Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

An in­flux of tourists vis­it­ing Auck­land’s north­ern beaches over sum­mer has re­sulted in ferry com­pany Fullers adding a fully-com­put­erised boat to its Devon­port ser­vice. Fullers has leased the Capri­cor­nian Surfer ves­sel from Aus­tralia for two years to re­lieve the 30-year-old Kea ferry from some of its duty, car­ry­ing more than 1000 peo­ple between Devon­port and cen­tal Auck­land ev­ery day. The 35-me­tre-long Capri­cor­nian Surfer, worth $6 mil­lion, can carry 380 pas­sen­gers and is be­ing fit­ted with a new cafe and bike racks.
