Emmalisa

Emmalisa operates cruises from Franklin Wharf Pier on Hobart’s waterfront.

The Emmalisa was built in 1942 for the Royal Australian Air Force by Slazenger; the Tennis Racket Macker and was built to carry the bombs out to the Catalina flying boats for bombing raids during World Two. She was at Rathmines Sea planes R.D.S.N on Lake Macquarie.

Her new life started in 1952 when she was converted to a ferry by standards to operate on Sydney Harbour after a time on the Hawkesbury River. She arrived in Hobart in 1981, where this quaint little vessel has charted around the harbour for 32 years, and was known to be the number one favourite with the kids and parents alike.
