Bintan Resort Ferries operates the ferry connection between Tanah Merah in Singapore and Bintan Island in the Riau Archipelago of Indonesia.
The company was brought into operation in 1994, based in the World Trade Centre which is now known as the Harbour Front of Singapore. Bintan Resort Ferries catamarans operate at cruising speeds in excess of 37 knots and feature high-tech navigation and engineering monitoring systems to ensure a smooth journey.
Operating four catamarans, each of the two newer ferries have 300 seats, 57 of which are the premium option: Emerald Class. Passengers travelling in Emerald Class can skip the queues for immigration clearance on arrival in Bintan, and let specially assigned staff take care of the process for them, significantly reducing the waiting time. Added to the fleet in 2009, these ships are named Wan Seri Beni and Wan Sendari, while the original vessels are called Aria Bupala and Indera Bupala, holding up to 262 and 286 passengers, respectively.
