Ferry Queen
 
 
This Simplon Postcards page is one of a series devoted to the River Thames excursion boats of City Cruises - it is not connected with the boat operator. This page shows the ex-Portsmouth ferry Ferry Queen.
 
Ferry Queen was originally in service on the Portsmouth-Gosport ferry. She was brought to the Thames in 1973 by W.Wrotham for use on the Tower to Westminster service. She was later sold to Thames Pleasure Craft, where she ran with the other ex-Gosport ferries Ferry Prince and Ferry Princess. Ferry Queen passed to City Cruises c.1995, and remained in service with them in 2005. She was offered for sale in 2006 and remained at the boatyard in Isleworth. Vita saw additional use because of this. However, both Vita and Ferry Queen saw extensive use on Tower-Westminster circulars in 2007.  The arrival of the Hydrospace fleet meant that Vita and Ferry Queen saw little use in 2008. In 2009 they were both sold for conversion into houseboats.
