Name of a book set in Australia about ferries and a bay/island?

I read a book about 6 years ago in Australian Middle School.

The book was based in a Bay possibly Pelican Bay or Fraser Island about 2 ferries and a young boy and his brother who moved there to live with their relatives. The book features these 2 ferries seemingly at war over who has the right to transport people to the island. One is owned by a possibly larger company with more funding and the other is a older ferry faded in colour. They are both trying to win the rights and the customers to transport to this place and this book follows that story.

I can not remember the name or the author and all attempts to find this book have yielded no result.
