Enjoy on Swan River in South Perth, Western Australia by boat! The West Australian built Decoy is licensed to carry 230 passengers, is 25.9 m long, has a steel hull and is panelled throughout with Jarrah and Ironbark wood. The Vessel is powered by steam using a Ransome Sims & Jefferies twin cylinder steam engine built in 1905 and is the only ocean going in the southern hemisphere (only one other known in the northern hemisphere). The Decoy, an iconic steam powered paddle ship, tours the Swan River showcasing a wide variety of live music from WA muscians- jazz, strings, raggae & more. For the last 4 years the Decoy has been moored and teetering on the edge of be sold overseas, but not anymore! A beautiful partnership was formed and the PS Decoy is to paddle the Swan River once again! We are focusing on three things: 1. Providing Perth with a unique music experience. 2. Establishing a connection with the South Perth Community. 3. Contributing to the environment, the greenhouse gas emissions generated by the Decoy have been offset with bio-diverse reforestation carbon offsets. The ship is also fixed with solar panels.
