Vessel Type: River Ferry

“Riva 1” is a very efficient catamaran river ferry built to operate on the Chao Phraya River in Thailand.  The design and kit was completed as an open air vessel and provides great airflow for passengers on those steamy Bangkok days.  It’s also available with an enclosed passenger deck for cooler climates.

This hull runs with almost level trim, making it comfortable for the passengers and aiding movement about the deck while underway.  Due to the highly efficient hull, this kit is also suitable for electric propulsion.
