Sydney Harbour hydrofoil. Built in Italy, she could carry 240 passengers at 38 knots. She was in service between Circular Quay and Manly from 1984 to 1991. This was a faster way to get between Manly & Circular Quay, about 12 minutes compared to about 50 for the regular Ferry). But it was noisy, bumpy and a ticket cost about twice the price. Still, if you were in a hurry & it was peak hour (when driving between Manly & Circular Quay could take up to 1.5 hours), it couldn't be beaten! :)
