Tourism stories

Pennicott milestone

It was celebrations all round, as the latest addition to the Pennicott fleet was launched by Premier Will Hodgman earlier this month. The action happened on Hobart’s waterfront, but it’s the Tasman Peninsula and Port Arthur region that are really celebrating this tourism boost. The $1 million Southern Edge boat will whisk trekkers down to The Three Capes Track, which is quickly gaining a reputation as one of the world’s ultimate walks: "We are very excited about the potential for tourism opportunities with the vessel. The new cat is contracted to deliver passengers to the first stage of Tasmanian Walking Company’s Three Capes Lodge Walk, from Port Arthur to Denmans Cove, three days per week,” Rob Pennicott explained. This Tassie built boat – the 16th for Pennicott Wilderness Journeys – has been especially designed for rugged southern waters, but expect to be delivered in first class style. Think leather seats, Huon pine trim…and that’s just for starters!
