Fourth 'Lizzie' on horizon
After patrolling Wellington Harbour for nearly 20 years, the police launch Lady Elizabeth III – known as ‘Lizzie’ – is to be replaced with a more powerful $3.5million boat.
The new aluminium Lady Elizabeth IV will have the same generic design as the Auckland police launch Deodar III, with modifications for Wellington’s heavier weather conditions.
Police Minister Judith Collins announced the replacement – the ninth police boat to patrol Wellington waters – earlier this month.
On average, Lizzie has taken part in more than 600 incidents and 400 patrols each year.
