History of the TX44

The ship is 35 meters long and 8.20 wide. There are 2 environmentally friendly engines of each 450hp.

The ship was built in 1949 as a "Dockyard VII" ferry. More than 1300 people could be transported with this. The ship was equipped with two flaps on both sides, which - depending on the landing side - could be lowered onto the pontoon. All passengers were able to leave the ship within minutes.

The ship was rebuilt in 2006 and the last renovation took place this spring of 2019. The ship can accommodate 125 people in the saloon and 125 on the upper deck.

Safety first

Safety is our top priority. Of course our ship meets the safety regulations of the shipping inspection. Because of the high railing, our ship is also safe for children.
