After we reported that some Friendship Boats had been removed from service and were likely getting a new paint scheme, one Friendship Boat has debuted a new color scheme at EPCOT.
The Friendship Boats provide service to and from EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and select nearby resorts.
Friendship III now has a solid blue piece on the top of the roof. The rest of the roof and the sides around the windows are solid red.
A thin blue stripe runs around the white hull.
Previously, the boat’s colors were more pastel, and the roof edges were striped like an awning.
The seats, as seen at the back of Friendship III, are still a teal green color. They may be updated to better match the new color scheme later.
The Walt Disney World transportation logo, as seen on symbols for the Walt Disney World Railroad, is now stamped on the back of the boat.
The logo has a red “W,” blue “D,” and green “W” overlapping.
The other boats we saw today still had their old color scheme, but we expect them to be slowly rotated out of service and repainted. The boats may also have slightly different color schemes, just like before, but use the same tones and palette.

They should have painted them to match the cruise ships. Missed opportunity for more shameless self promotion
The new symbol is fun but the boat color scheme is kind of boring. Who doesn’t like Red, White, and Blue? But, not much zip to the execution here .
