SA’s newest ferry comes online

22 July 2016


The state’s newest steel-hull ferry is now in service at Narrung on the Lower Lakes.

‘Dotterel’ is the second of the State Government’s four new steel-hull ferries and was built by local Mid-Murray family business Bowhill Engineering and our team at the Morgan dockyard.

This is the culmination of an impressive team effort over the past four years, drawing upon a range of expertise and learnings from previous builds to save costs and successfully deliver an optimum solution.

The ferry is being used to carry freight, commuters and tourists across the waters safely and conveniently.

Well done to all involved in the launch.
