Aratere gets a Revamp!
Preparations are underway for the cut and extension of New Zealand’s busiest Interislander ferry. Passenger capacity will increase from 360 to over 600, with a capacity increase of 30% for vehicles.
Inside, spacious new lounges will include a new purpose built Aratere Plus Premium Lounge, quiet lounge, a new family lounge with play area, and a new shop and upgraded food court. Existing passenger areas will also be completely remodelled.
Other improvements include a completely new bow, new propellers, and extra engine capacity which together will provide better sailing performance with less wash in the Marlborough Sounds.
