Chao Phrya Express Boat Co. Ltd have introduced two new tourist boats, CTB 1 and CTB 2, that will dramatically enhance the riverine experience.
With a 29.6-meter length and a 4.9-meter beam. The new tourist boats includes a top deck seating area as well as a top mounted wheelhouse. This gives them a total seating capacity of 96 passengers and an excellent vantage for viewing the riverside scenery.
Most of the Express boats have only a single engine, while the new Tourist boats are twin-engined. A pair of classic Cummins NTA855 diesels is fitted into the hull under the port and starboard platforms that support the stairs to the upper decks. The engines, each rated for 350 HP at 1800 RPM, turn propellers through ZF gears.
