A Manly Ferry returning to Berth number 3 at Circular Quay, Sydney Harbour.
The ferry is pictured here with the Port Jackson ( Sydney Harbour) entrance as a backdrop
with North Head on the left side of image and South Head to the right.

The current Harbour City Ferries fleet of four Manly ferries are known as the Freshwater class and comprise, in order of commissioning, the Freshwater, Queenscliff, Narrabeen, and Collaroy, which were commissioned between 1982 and 1988. They were built at the State Dockyards in Newcastle and Carrington Slipways in Tomago. They are 70 metres in length, 12.5 metres wide, draught of 3.3 metres and they displace 1,140 tonnes. Their passenger capacity is 1,100 and their service speed is 16 knots.[10]

They are powered by two Daihatsu model 8DSMB-32 turbo-charged diesel engines which each develop 2238 kW at 600rpm, and have hand-controllable pitch propellers. The hull and lower cabin area are of welded steel construction and the upper cabin and two wheelhouses are aluminium. The newest vessel,
Collaroy, is fitted with Sperry Gyrofin stabilisers and additional catering facilities for ocean cruising.[10]

Occasionally, a Lady Class ferry may be seen operating the F1: Manly. This is often due to one of the Freshwater Class being unavailable. Lady Class are often chosen to replace Freshwater Classes, due to their large capacity. First Fleet and even SuperCats have been known to go as far as Manly on rare occasions.
