Fourth Sydney ferry leaves Incat

Incat consigned the fourth ferry in a six-vessel order to Sydney in August. The harbour ferry contract with the NSW Government has helped the Hobart shipyard to expand its workforce to 550, including 33 apprentices. The Deputy Premier, Matthew Groom, said the presence of Tasmanian-built ferries on Sydney Harbour would strengthen the State’s boat-building reputation. He said: “This is an important element of securing other advanced manufacturing and Defence-related contracts of significance, especially in the maritime sector.”
