Superflyte
Superflyte
is a ferry operated in New Zealand between Auckland City and Waiheke Island by Fullers. The vessel was built in 1996 by Wavemaster International Proprietary Limited, Henderson, West Australia. The vessel is a 38.03 m aluminium catamaran, and the largest ferry operated by Fullers. The vessel has 427 seats over three levels, and has a service speed of 27 knots. On 22 August 2004, fire broke out on the vessel in the port engine. After the fire was extinguised, passengers were transferred to MV Starflyte, MV Harbour Cat and MV Seaflyte. The ferry made the news in 2009, when following ferry maintainance a fan broke down that ventilated the sewage system, causing smells of sewage to waft through the cabin. The ferry was again in the news in October 2011, when English rugby player Manu Tuilagi was talked to by police after he jumped from the vessel prior to docking, days after England's elimination from the Rugby World Cup.
