Captain Cook Cruises has launched its second $2.6million catamaran Mary Reibey this week.

Sister-ship to Elizabeth Cook, which launched last year, the new 24-metre catamaran carries 116-passengers and has been chartered by Harbour City Ferries to provide ferry charter services.

She was named after New South Wales business woman Mary Reibey who is also featured on the Australian $20 note.

The new catamaran  has a 360-degree viewing sundeck, is eco-friendly, fuel efficient and equipped with the latest technologies to reduce her carbon footprint.

Captain Cook Cruises’ parent company, SeaLink Travel Group managing director Jeff Ellison said ships like Mary Reibey are multi-purpose and is capable of operating up river to Parramatta and outside Sydney Harbour heads.

“On top of this Mary Reibey offers a fast service and a high level of comfort for passengers including large viewing windows and contemporary seating,” he said.

SeaLink has commissioned two more catamarans to be delivered in June and December this year.
