Archipelago Philippine Ferries Corporation (APFC) plans to operate a fastcraft plying the Bohol route gets the support of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan through a resolution approved “en masse” last week during it’s regular session.
APFC Operations Manager Oliver Pulanco sought the support of the SP for the favorable endorsement of their intention to open a Talisay City – Tubigon and Jagna – Balingoan (Misamis Oriental) trips using the brand new Australian custom crafted roll- on, roll-off passenger (ROPAX) vessels.
As Bohol continues to grow as a value destination for tourists, APFC objective is to focus on route development in their corporate concept of town/city pairs.
APFC owns and operates the country’s first and only catamaran RoRo ferries complemented with their modern terminals in the eastern and western sea routes.
Known for its FastCat, a fastcraft cargo vessel designed specifically for Philippine water conditions, the mid-speed RoRo vessel was built for freight vehicle transport and passenger accomodation and fitted with world class amenities.
No less than newly elected 1st district Board Member Ricky Masamayor, chairman of the Peace and Order and Public Safety Committee of the SP told DYRD Balita his experience on board one of APFC’s vessels “I was impressed by the standard of service of the fastcraft and its attention to cleanliness.
APFC vessels operates the Batangas-Calapan, Bulacan-Caticlan, Matnog-San Isidro, Bacolod-Iloilo, San Carlos-Toledo and Dumaguete-Dapitan routes. (Chito Visarra and Rey Tutas)
