Majestic Fast Ferry has launched its 11th and newest vessel, Majestic Dream, which can accommodate 317 passengers, including eight in business class.
It will serve passengers travelling to and from Singapore Cruise Centre’s (SCC) HarbourFront and Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal in Singapore, Batam Center and Sekupang terminals in Batam as well as Tanjung Pinang in Bintan.
According to Max Tan, director of Majestic Fast Ferry, the new ferry can accommodate 1.5 times more passengers, and the company plans to launch three more such vessels.
The Majestic Dream is the second series of ships built by Majestic Fast Ferry at its shipyard on Batam Island, following its first series comprising Majestic 7, 8 and 9.
It is powered by two fuel-efficient high speed diesel engines that use 30 per cent less fuel compared to the regular three engines found on other ferries.
