Before the introduction of the
present Spirit of Tasmania ferries, two High speed catamaran services were operated
between Tasmania and Victoria. One service was from Port Melbourne in conjunction with the
first Spirit of Tasmania at busy times;
and called the Devilcat,
and the other was a service between Port Welshpool
Victoria and Georgetown Tasmania, also in the busy warmer months.
The pictures on this page, show the 'Seacat' arriving at, and berthed at port Welshpool.
This crossing took about five hours.
