Water taxi services from Ferry Wharf Domestic Cruise port to Mandwa are set to commence on November 1, 2022. Each side will have three services, for a total of six.
They start on November 1, 2022, and water taxi services are expected to begin between Mandwa and Ferry Wharf Domestic Cruise Port. There will be three services on each side, for a total of six.
The vessel's owner and director, Captain Rohit Sinha, stated, "Nayantara has come and will redefine the norms and quality of water transportation. The ship will first go to Mandwa from the Domestic Cruise Terminal at Princess Dock Jetty. The price for the lower deck is Rs 400, while the upper/business class deck is Rs 450."
On October 12 this year, the yacht, which had been constructed in Goa, landed in Mumbai. Since then, it has done tests in the seas around Mumbai to ensure that ships can get there safely.
Additionally, it is the only ocean-going double-deck stable boat of its size that can go at high speed through Mumbai. Although it can have 22 knots of pace, it would ideally travel between South Mumbai and Navi Mumbai at 15 mph. Its two 750 HP Volvo Penta high-speed engines give it its speed. There are four restrooms on the lower deck and two on the vessel's top deck, which is entirely air-conditioned.
In February 2022, water taxis in Mumbai were introduced. However, despite an earlier attempt by one of the private water taxi companies, service still needed to be started from the domestic cruise port.
Moreover, regarding last-mile connections and ticket prices, the Mumbai Port Trust and Maharashtra Maritime Board's proposals to provide water transport service from the terminal were unsuccessful. Therefore, the benefit could only start in full from the domestic cruise terminal once officially launched.
Sohel Kazani, the brand's owner and a partner in Infinity Harbour Services, expressed his excitement about working with the boat owners to handle their tickets and develop future revenue for this vessel.
It will cost 400 for the lower deck and 450 for the higher business class deck. The 200-passenger capacity of the brand-new ship is called "NAYAN XI."
