Besides the passenger ferry boats, Navgathi is now developing high-performance pleasure boats taking the advantage of leading-edge technology and experience in creating innovation. Our water taxi “Nirva” is a combination of high efficiency, top-level performance, and passenger comfort. Once operational Nirva will be one of the fastest boats operating in Kerala backwaters.
The elegant and unique passenger centered design makes Nirva different and highly noticeable. Passenger cabin gives a full open view for the passengers, in a controlled and enclosed spacious cabin with comfortable seating. The vessel is carefully designed for easy handling, reduced crew workload and most importantly maximizing the fuel efficiency.
