A regional Western Australian boatbuilding company has been selected to deliver the next generation Transperth ferry.

The $2.6 million project, awarded to Dongara Marine, will deliver the third ferry in the Transperth fleet, after the MV Shelley Taylor-Smith and the MV Phillip Pendal.

The ferry will be built at Dongara Marine's Port Denison facility and, during peak construction, will create three additional local jobs, including one apprentice.

The contract is a huge win for the Mid West region and should also deliver positive regional benefits to subcontractors and suppliers.

MWDC has a strong commitment to diversifying the region's economic base, growing business, retaining, attracting and developing skilled people and maximising local jobs.

To support this focus, our local content advisor Gary Savill aims to maximise the participation of regional industry in contract opportunities.

Gary is available to provide an advisory and referral service to local businesses.
