A new steel-hulled ferry has been launched on the River Murray. The ferry was built by Murray Mallee company Bowhill Engineering and is one of four that will replace the ageing fleet. The Department’s Morgan Dockyard will fit out the ferry before it is commissioned later in the year. In total, 14 ferries provide a 24/7 river crossing service at 11 crossings.
