Design work, including America’s Cup foiling technology, is complete on a pair of electric commuter ferries for Auckland, and both could be built in two years pending funding decisions, Stuff reveals. Boatyards McMullen and Wing, and Yachting Developments, will build the 200-passenger, 24 metre, high-tech carbon fibre ferries according to Auckland-based EV Maritime. “De-carbonising” the ferry fleet is a rising priority for Auckland Transport as part of the supercity’s commitment to halve carbon emissions by 2030.
