Another obscure Manly boat. 

She was  a wooden steam ship with a single screw.

She operated as a Manly ferry between 1884 and 1893. After being sold to her new owners in 1893, she seems to have been used as a harbour ferry until she was sold to Auckland in February of 1896.

Her name is variously spelt as Marramarra, Marrra Marra or Murra Murra.

She was wrecked in 1896.
