Last week, Business Events Sydney (BESydney) chief executive Lyn Lewis-Smith officially launched SeaLink Travel Group's twin passenger catamarans, MV Blackwattle Bay and MV Cockle Bay.

The $2 million catamarans are the first of their kind to join the Captain Cook Cruises Sydney Harbour fleet and will run regular services between Circular Quay and Darling Harbour for conference delegates attending the new International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney).

Lewis-Smith said the catamarans are great win for international business delegates in Sydney.

"I was honoured to take part in the launch of the two new vessels that will make our city even more accessible for visitors and locals alike," she said.

"The route offers the best of Sydney – views of the stunning Sydney Harbour, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House coupled with the convenience of point-to-point transportation between the heart of Circular Quay and Sydney's rejuvenated business events district."

MV Blackwattle Bay and MV Cockle Bay each have the capacity to carry 60 passengers are equipped with the latest technologies to reduce their carbon footprint. They will also operate services for Captain Cook Cruise's Hop On Hop Off service.
