Dar ferry

#3
Just wondering, does the gaament allow private companies to provide ferry services, or is it that it isn't such a lucrative venture? If someone started a ferry service and charged a certain amount, would they be allowed, ama the KFS would haul their ass to court?

Lakini it's just coz we don't have an island.
@Luther12 how many kms is it from mainland to Lamu and can a modern ferry break even in 4yrs?

MV Jambo is barely a few months old and another is due in 2018. Its carries more vehicles, people comfortably and safely. IMG_20171125_220551.jpg images (1).jpeg images (2).jpeg IMG_20171125_220545.jpg 13.jpg images (3).jpeg
The needs for Dar and Mombasa are different and therefore the vessels are different. Our ferries just travel a few hundred meters to connect Likoni and Mombasa Island. Dar ferries have to go further to Pemba and Zanzibar and are therefore ocean going ships. As for lamu. That's a county of 50000 people. That number is so small to warrant such big ferries as they will barely be taking 50-100 people at trip. That's why small crafts are used. However a public marina is to be built and thereafter the modern ships needed will be decided.

That's a catamaran, two hulls joined together. Can't carry much but on the upside super stable. The day I rob a bank I will not be arrested for buying a lamborghini but a yacht based on that.

My friend traveling in that ferry from Dar to Zanzibar is not a walk in the park especially if you are weak, the speed is astronomical ,the ride is usually bumpy, up and down.
It travels just once per day, ukichelewa Zanzibar anakuja na other type of boat.
It's expensive, it's 6K Kenyan money from Dar to Zanzibar

I agree the needs are different, the distance between the two case study is quite different, from Dar to Zanzibar is a far distance
