The ferry that create history indeed as she's the first locally built ferry @ Keris Shipyard in Butterworth, Penang. In fact she's the 6th ferry after Pulau Pinang (1956) - built in Singapore, Pulau Aman, Pulau Langkawi, Pulau Tioman, Pulau Pangkor (all 1959) - built in Hongkong, Pulau Labuan & Pulau Redang (both 1971).
