It's been seven years since Sydney ferry 'Radar' plied the waters of Sydney Harbour and for all that time she has sat in dry dock at her birthplace in McMahons Point. Almost 20,000 man-hours have gone into the $2 million refit by Noakes Group, and in March the heritage ferry was re-launched, having undergone a stunning transformation for the upcoming Biennale of Sydney.
A true icon of Sydney Harbour and the “mother” of the Rosman Cruises fleet, Radar is being meticulously restored under the skilled care of the Noakes Group team. Built of Australian hardwood and originally launched in 1947, this classic will soon return to lead the Rosman Cruises fleet of vintage ferries.
The historic vessel Radar is currently undergoing a complete restoration to be returned to her former glory as the figurehead of the Rosman Cruises fleet.
Iconic to Sydney Harbour, the Rosman Cruises fleet of vintage ferries are renowned for providing unrivalled viewing for Sydney’s greatest on-water events. For decades, spectators have flocked aboard to cheer on the historical 18 Foot Skiffs, watch the thrills and spills of the modern Australian 18 footers League, experience the nail-biting start of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, and this year, the start of the Noakes Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race.
