48′ River boat in service
The classic 48′ timber river boat Birrarung is now in commercial service on Melbourne’s Yarra river. Bury design worked closely with the builder and owners, providing design and engineering services to complete the project from an empty shell.
Interesting features of this craft include a custom built diesel-electric propulsion system to our specifications and a structural roof system removing the need for supporting posts aft. All design work was carried out to Australian commercial (NSCV) standards.
