As part of the ongoing effort to promote tourism, the Andhra Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (APTDC), has taken the initiative of further introducing 38 boats in the state by the year-end.

These boats would include six 50 seaters, six 30 seaters, 15 six seaters, four Shikara boats and seven speed boats. Of them, 16 boats will be introduced in the city, seven in Vijayawada, three in Rajahmundry and the rest in Srisailam, Warangal and East Godavari.

H Hanumantha Rao, APTDC officer on special duty, mentioned that, “Based on the response the number of boats would be increased further by the end of January 2002. In all 13 boats will be introduced at Lumbini Park, which would include 20 seaters, 18 seaters and four seaters. About five boats at Hussain Sagar and Durgam Cheruvu and two at Nagarjuna Sagar and Miralam Tank will also be introduced.”

Further, at Nagarjuna Sagar, besides the four launches Vijayalakshmi, Krishna, Agastya and Zaria, two semi air-conditioned versions each costing Rs one crore will be introduced by the end of January next year.
