NRMA’s Syd­ney Fan­tasea

Cruise Weekly - - News -

SIG­NIF­I­CANT op­por­tu­ni­ties for Syd­ney Har­bour-based tourism ac­tiv­i­ties have been cited as one of the driv­ers of to­day’s an­nounce­ment that mo­tor­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion NRMA is pur­chas­ing Fan­tasea Cruises.

The deal in­cludes 10 fer­ries and 10 wa­ter-taxis, with the deal leaked at yes­ter­day’s Travel IQ con­fer­ence in Syd­ney by NRMA Chief In­vest­ment Of­fi­cer Rachel Wise­man.

NRMA also owns Manly Fast Ferry, with Wise­man hint­ing that the ad­di­tion of the Fan­tasea fleet could see the over­all op­er­a­tion re­branded with a fo­cus on do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional tourists.

Ac­cord­ing to NRMA CEO Ro­han Lund, the or­gan­i­sa­tion “wants the city to again re­alise the po­ten­tial of the world’s great­est har­bour” with the deal com­ple­ment­ing NRMA’s other travel busi­nesses in­clud­ing car rental, hol­i­day parks and ho­tels.
