It's all aboard for the Pattaya to Pranburi sea ferry

Recommended Posts

This is nonsense. The fare is too high, the infrastructure has yet to be built, and excuse me, but did I read that the Pattaya departure location is actually in Baan Amphur? Doomed. Taxi fare per person to there will be at least 250 a person. If they were smart (not gonna happen) they'd make it accessible from the Bali Hai Marina. By the way, I wonder what the rate for a motorcycle is...

The full capacity will amount to APPROX <8000 Passengers / day incl motorbikes & 4 pp/car.the total income at full capacity which is impossible to achieve on dsily basis is 8 mil baht.As for the car 3000 incl I guess 4 passengers.

I would rather rough it n go on the bus or SWIM IT if can grab some red viagras ??

Surely that boat in the photo can't take 30 cars?!

And traveling 109 km in 90 minutes = 73 km/hour average? Unlikely.

The high-speed ferries across the English Channel have a top speed just under 80 kph.

No date has yet been set for the start of the operation.

Terminals will be built

Wake me up when service commences.

Sleep well, Rip Van Winkle, sleep well.

1000thb? 3000thb? So. 5 people in 1 car is 8000? Or just 3000 ? If it's 8000 it's ridiculous!

imagine 12 thais in a pick up...kerching!

Ssshhh, you are not supposed to check the facts and prick the bubble of optimism that drives these projects. Just smile and nod. I saw the Grand Opening of the last ferry, and a few weeks later it was all over. Once the bank loan is secured I think the business happily takes a dive.

The Captain is required to be a strong swimmer.

How else can he perform the inevitable ".....fled the scene of the accident"?

Likely that the captain thinks he could walk on water.

There's a good bus service from Hua Hin to Patts now at a good price..OK so there's only 1 direct bus each way daily (& yes it does take a few hours) , but could we use this as an indicator of the true amount of folk wishing to travel this route..?

(If there were thousands of people wishing to go to/fro from Patts to H.H. I'd have thought at this present time the road would be full of buses plying this route).

Amazing how marketing people can create big numbers of travellers in dire need of this ferry service...perhaps they've seen how the TaT

have eveyrone believing the figures they publish..?

Indeed, they are not known as the "Vomit Rockets" for nothing!

Talk talk talk.....

The three terminals are not built yet....

No boats ordered....

Fat chance this will happen in 10 years time

Baan Amphur is not Pattaya, it is at the end of NaJomtien, nearly Bang saray at least a 300 Baht (shared) taxi-ride and at least the same or more on the other side.... this is doomed before start....

They should make it go from Bali Hi to Hua Hin city center..... even then they will struggle for sure.....

The vessel in the picture is just that... A picture of a ferry boat. It is a high speed Cat used in many other parts of the real Planet Earth.

This deluded area has yet to learn basic Arithmetic let alone navigation skills.

The numbers do not add up.

Of course...These vessels will be competing with the High Speed Rail link in 2525 if man is still alive.

You are assuming some market research was actually done - big assumption, big mistake.

Even if they can carry those numbers, what makes them think that many people want to make that journey?
