The refurbished Queenscliff Sydney ferry will get back to work this summer.
NSW Premier Chris Minns and Transport Minister Jo Haylen recently announced the retired Freshwater vessel would again carry passengers again on the F1 Manly to Circular Quay route later this year.
The Queenscliff has undergone an extensive $16m refit to make her passenger ready. Her sister ship, the Narrabeen, is also expected to return to service next year after her upgrade.
Transdev Sydney Ferries Managing Director Gary Iddon said crews were looking forward to being back on the Freshwater vessels again.
