Sydney, Meet Your New Ferry Called.... Ferry McFerryFace!

Is this funny or just a bit silly?

A year after Transport NSW launched the Name Your Ferry competition, we have finally have the name of the latest ferry in its fleet, introducing...Ferry McFerryFace!

After Sydneysiders were asked to vote on names for the new ferries, Ferry McFerryFace was actually the second most popular choice with most votes going to Boaty McBoatFace.


However, Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance revealed, 

"Given Boaty was already taken by another vessel, we've gone with the next most popular name nominated by Sydneysiders,"

Three new ferries have already been named by the public, paying homage to Fred Hollows, Victor Chang and Catherine Hamlin.

Ferry McFerryFace joins the Swedish train  Trainy McTrainFace, Sydney racehorse Horsey McHorseFace, and of course, Boaty McBoatFace.
