Ex RAN harbour workboat and passenger motor launch
Harman was built at Cockatoo Island c.1943 for the Royal Australian Navy. She is built of oregon and hardwood. Harman is a typical Sydney Harbour work/passenger motor boat. The navy gave her the identification number 296 and used her for harbour duties until 1957.
In 1958 she was transferred to Cockatoo Dockyard.
In 1992 she was purchased by the Sydney Heritage Fleet for $150.
Restoration work has been carried out on her engine, hull, deck and cabin. Initial restoration was carried out in 1995 and further work conducted in 1999.
She continues to work on the harbour as a passenger-carrying launch for the Fleet and has carried hundreds of happy passengers out on the harbour during the last few years.
