How many people can I bring?
When you rent our boats for us doesn’t matter how many persons are on boat till match is capacity – and naturally, your accepted offer. MS Neptun is max. 250 pax (with crew) MS Klara 40 pax (with crew). Consider that the maximum capacity does not equal to comfort, though it depends by the type of the event.
As per our knowledge the convenient capacity is usually half of the total capacity.
How fast is a boat?
A passenger boat is not a really fast vehicle and its speed is partly determined by the external conditions, the current of the river, wind.
In case of the MS Neptun we can calculate with the rough numbers of 8-10 km/hour upstream and 16-20 km/hour downstream.
For MS Klara these numbers are slightly lower 6-9 km/hour upstream and 14-18 km/hour downstream.
Are alternative departure and arrival ports available?
Certainly, these ports are partly listed on the specific products, like in case of MS Klara. We will provide you a quote taking these requests into consideration.
When do I need to pay the boat rental?
You need to pay the boat rental when the order is made. The acceptance of the order is only possible with rentals fully paid up.
Our colleagues will reply within a business day usually.
