Nancy Fanciers

Nancy is a Derwent [and Huon] River ferry built in 1917 by AA ‘Tucker’ Abel, a well known boat builder in Hobart, Tasmania who specialised in motor launches. Nancy operated as a ferry [and as a flying boat tender] on the Derwent River for almost 40 years until at least the 1950s.’ Martin and Judy Krynen completed a major restoration of the Nancy, and in act of wonderful generosity have given her to the Living Boat Trust. Read all about it at http://bit.ly/1oyLq0j . The Nancy is an ideal excursion boat for exploring the Huon estuary and the lower reaches of the river.
