The ferry was escorted by a Royal Thai Navy frigate and a patrol boat of the Marine Department during the test run to ensure safety for the ferry and its passengers.

 

Is this to be a permanent escort :unsure:

 Maybe in the future they can be escorted by navy submarines. Maybe even have submarine races to entertain the passengers

This ferry service will be mostly for tourists  , and except for those who live full or part

time in Thailand. Tourists do not have cars or pickups to worry about.

  Expats who live full time have vehicles that can be driven from Hua Hin to Pattaya  and

the other way as well.     Lazy people however  would want a passenger and car service.

Sorry  No  Can  Do, for now

Geezer

and who, pray, would want to go on a mini holiday from HH to Pattaya?

 

Mini mongers hiding their light under the genteel retirement bushel in HH?

Why not, everyone else does, I can drive drinking better than people who are sober.

The sale of alcohol is banned on all ferries and piers in Thailand.  Advertising alcohol isn't which is why Raja have a giant floating Singha billboard for a boat.

 

You will have to buy your beer from the 7eleven across the road before you board.

Keep calm, catamarans got a shallow draft mate.

I just hope they have the staying power to tweak the details

 

I hope that also includes regular inspections of all aspects of the actual ferry, especially safety equipment, everything in order in regard to known items that can cause fire or explosion, and seaworthiness.
