#0301 Auckland Yellow Ferry

The prototype ferry was launched in Auckland in July 2003, followed by a second a year or so later.


A collaborative design effort between LOMOcean Design and Grant Reed Designs, this striking design with its retro New York cab styling and bright yellow paintwork is intended to offer a practical, high speed passenger water taxi service to cities around the world with river, lake or harbour frontage.

Accommodating up to 36 passengers, the ferry offers bow, stern and port and starboard loading, a large head compartment, air conditioning and some external seating.


It can be configured for propellers or water jet drive and either twin or single engine set ups. Powered by a single Scania diesel with conventional shaft and propeller set up, this funky taxi is sure to turn heads, wherever it sees service.


Originally operating in Auckland on the inner harbour Hobsonville Marina to CBD run, the boats now operate out of Russell, Bay of Islands, New Zealand.
