M/V Fenerbahçe Ferry Boat

The M/V Fenerbahçe is a ferry built in 1952, the same year as its sister ship the M/V Dolmabahçe, at the William Denny & Brothers shipyard in Dumbarton, Glasgow. The ship is one of the so-called “garden type” and went into service on 14th May 1953 as part of the Turkish Maritime Lines Fleet. For many years the ship plied the Sirkeci- Adalar –Yalova-Çınarcık line between İstanbul and the southern shore of the Marmara Sea, making its last farewell voyage on 22nd December 2008. The ship has two 1500 horsepower Sulzer diesel engines, twin screw with a maximum speed of 18 knots per hour. It is a handsome vessel, with its huge funnel and wooden fittings.

The ferry is on loan from the İstanbul Metropolitan Municipality.

Since 2009, it has served as a museum ship that is open to the public and is a venue for temporary exhibitions and educational events. Visitors can also enjoy the nostalgic atmosphere of the cafe.
