Mona launches new evil-billionaire’s-lair-themed catamaran
Innovative Tasmanian museum Mona and Mona Roma have unveiled a new ferry that features a private jungle, three bars, wallaby-fur-lined booths and a gold latrine.
Launched at Brooke Street Pier on 4 December, Mona Roma 2 (MR-II) will replace the smaller MR-0, increasing capacity and improving services for visitors to Hobart.
A direct trip between Brooke Street Pier and Mona takes around 25 minutes. The ferry is undercover and sails in rain, hail or shine. Read about prices, accessibility and other FAQs here.
Choose from two different travel options. Purchase a standard ticket to sit on sheep, frequent the onboard bars and admire the “spunky staff in their spunky boiler suits”.
Or, upgrade to the Posh Pit and escape the riff-raff. Enjoy complimentary drinks, canapés and inflated egos in an exclusive lounge, bar and private deck. There’s table service, too; guests are advised to “rattle your jewellery for attention”.
