PHOTOS: Friendship Boat Debuts New Nautical Blue Color Scheme at Walt Disney World

Another Friendship Boat at Walt Disney World has debuted a new blue color scheme. Last summer, some Friendship Boats were removed from service. Friendship III was the first to return to service with new red and blue paint, followed by Friendship IV with a yellow and blue colorway. This summer, Friendship VIII debuted a blue and yellow look. Now it’s Friendship I’s turn for an updated color scheme.

Friendship I’s new color scheme is very nautical, with multiple shades of blue, and white and red accents.

As with the previous boats, the interior of Friendship I does not have a new color scheme. The bench seats are still teal.
