IKA RERE by WEBBCo

A clean green marine machine

It’s big, silent and lives on the harbour.

Ika Rere is the groundbreaking electric vessel made specifically for East by West Ferries who wanted a large, fast, electric passenger ferry.

It’s been built by the Seaview-based Wellington Electric Boat Building Company.

Managing director
 Fraser Foote (pictured right) says all the tech was there to create this kind of zero-carbon craft, it just hadn’t been done on this scale.

“So we worked with NZ marine and electric vehicle experts to come up with it. We think a lot of cities will want one. Maybe two!”
