Sydney, Australia (AU)
The Baragoola was the last of of six similar sister ships built by Mort's Dock between 1905 & 1922. She was built nine years after the Barrenjoey in response to growing passenger demand. She was the last Manly ferry built by Mort's & the last Manly ferry built in Australia until the Freshwater class in the 1980's. When built, she cost 72,000 pounds & was the 41st vessel built by Mort's. She was the eighth vessel built by Mort's for the PJ&MSS Co. over a 35 year period, Mort's made no money on the construction of the ferry & the next three vessels would be built overseas due to the high local cost.
