Five-star quality ships on Bangladesh’s waterways were once a dream. This time the dream is really coming true. A five-star quality ship called ‘MV Bay One’ will operate regularly on the Cox’s Bazar-Saint Martin route.

Karnafuly Ship Builders of Chittagong bought the ship from Japan. Earlier, the name of this ship was ‘Salvia Saru Or Maru’. The ship is currently stationed in Chittagong.

Regular maritime tourism has been launched on the Chittagong-Saint Martin route. Bay One Cruise is one of the pioneers of this sub-sector of tourism. The ship will sail three days a week. Entrepreneurs say this is just the beginning of maritime tourism. This sub-sector has immense potential. They hope that maritime tourism will one day play a good role in the national economy.

Maritime tourism is an undiscovered sub-sector of Bangladesh. However, it is developing slowly. This time a little long voyage is being added with the winter one day cruise. Tourist ships will go from Chittagong to the coral island of St. Martin.

The Bay One Cruise is one of the pioneers of maritime tourism. Karnafuly Ship Builders Limited has imported the ship from Japan at a cost of Tk 105 crore. This pleasure boat has various arrangements including overnight accommodation for the passengers.

The minimum fare to travel directly from Chittagong to St. Martin is 3 thousand Taka. One of the attractions of the 6-storey ship is the VVIP cabin. Rent 50 thousand Taka.

Kazi Enamul Haque, deck in-charge of Bay One Cruise Ship, said it includes economy chairs, business chairs, bunkers, presidential suites, royal suites, cabins and more VVPI cabins. The total capacity of the cruise is 200 people.

At a speed of 24 nautical miles per hour, one of the features of this ship is its ability to survive safely in the sea even in adverse weather conditions. The ship will be able to carry passengers until the danger signal 6, the captain said.

Captain Alamgir Kabir said that since the ship is fitted with fin stabilizer. No other ship in the history of Bangladesh has been fitted with a fin stabilizer. No matter how many rolls it will roll at a certain angle.

Bay One Cruise Ship plans to travel to various destinations including Andaman and Pattaya to promote maritime tourism.

The ship’s CEO, Captain Masuk Hasan Ahmed (retd), said many people would get jobs. We have already recruited 1 to 1.5 thousand people on this ship. We have more plans in management, we have seen two / three more ships, we will bring them too.

The ship owner hopes that Bay One will make a significant contribution to the development of the country’s tourism industry.

MA Rashid, managing director of Karnafuly Ship Builders, said, “These are the development of the country, they were not there before. So some new connections are needed with these. We gifted this ship to the countrymen.”

Initially, the Bay One will run on the Chittagong-Saint Martin route three days a week. 200 crew will be engaged in passenger service.
