Ferry/Speedboat/Yacht

I hope you can help me.

I am looking for a transfer for our family Sin-batam-sin, but really do not want to use the usual ferry services, as I would prefer something a little more comfortable/special.

I know that montigo Resort has its' own private yacht transfers for $98SGD each, but we are not staying there. And Bintan Island has a 'emerald' class ferry service.

Does Batam Island have a service like this, or a private operator?

Pity you that you really freak out without even trying to take the comfortable

Singapore-Batam-singapore ferry ride.

a)There is hardly any wave during the ride

b)Extremely comfortable

c)Fast

Go ahead to book a private transfer if you had money to throw around.

Thank you Leopang for your total misinterpretation of my post. Keep up the hard work with your study and then maybe you can understand what is being asked of you.

I am looking for something special for our transfer. Not because of freaking out, waves etc, but for other reasons.

Comments like yours give TA and yourself a very bad name, when all I was after was advice, not blatant crap that you served up.

Why spend so much to chartered when the ride is only 45 minutes
