Sydney's new ferry named Ferry McFerryface

Ferry Mc Ferryface and Boaty McBoatface

The results are in and Australians have chosen Ferry McFerryface as the official name for one of the iconic Sydney Harbour ferryboats, according to the New South Wales Public Transport Facebook page.

However, the most votes actually went to the name Boaty McBoatface, the notable title Brits voted to call a new research vessel a year ago.

Given Boaty was already taken by another vessel, we've gone with the next most popular name nominated by Sydneysiders.

"The most popular names by far in the Name Your Ferry competition were Victor Chang, Fred Hollows and Catherine Hamlin, which are already ferrying passengers across the harbour", Transport Minister Andrew Constance said.

Sydney has a name for the newest yellow vessel traversing the inner-harbour: Ferry McFerryface.

"This one is for the kids."

Sydney's other new ferries, on the other hand, have been named after the likes of famous Australian doctors, beaches and sportspeople. Since then, an express train in Sweden was reportedly named Trainy McTrainface and a racehorse in Sydney was named Horsey McHorseface past year.

Although the UK's Natural Environment Research Council ignored the will of the public, deciding to name their boat the RSS Sir David Attenborough, our transport department nevertheless saw fit to avoid a double-up.

They can hold 400 customers, have improved accessibility for people with disabilities, WiFi access, luggage and bicycle storage areas and charging stations for electronic devices.
