Star Ferry Fleet List

This list was published in 1998. Some of the ferries appear to have had long lives lasting from prewar to postwar and renamed a number of times

The listing came from an A4 size hardback book titled "Star Ferry-The Story of a Hong Kong Icon" by David Johnson, published by the Star Ferry Company in 1998. ISBN 962 85234-2-2. Mainly text and many modern images. The relatively few vintage images appear to be from the usual well-known postcard images and similar. Possibly still available from the Star Ferry concourse specialist transport shops, I don't recall seeing it in the regular bookshops.

In addition to the previously mentioned book "Star Ferry-The Story of a Hong Kong Icon" there is also a paperback publication titled "Star Struck" published by the Hong Kong Maritime Museum covering a history of the ferries. Will no doubt be available from the museum's shop when the museum opens at its new location at the Central piers.
