Mona's funky ferry, baby

Ferry travellers to and from Tasmania's famous Museum of Old and New Art are now able to experience a gold toilet. 

A new ferry, the Mona Roma II, produced by local boat builder Richardson Devine Marine, is decked out to amuse.

Along with the aforementioned golden throne, it is draped in animal fur, mirrors on the ceiling and a private jungle. 

According to Mona's Robbie Brammall, the inspiration comes from the world's most loved movie villains, to create an evil billionaire's lair.

"There's a bit of James Bond, there's a little bit of Austin Powers and there's a little bit of Mona luxury in there as well, they are all part of the theming of the vessel, so it feels pretty fun."

He expects it to go down a treat.

"We're fairly confident this will become the most instagramed ferry in Berriedale."
