Unique ice-breaker yachts costing $2 million each will allow Moscow residents and visitors to take tours along the Moskva River all year round.
Tour organizers note that the panoramic glass will allow passengers to enjoy beautiful views of the city’s embankments regardless of the weather. There are lights mounted on the yacht’s underside to illuminate the water and make for more spectacular evening trips. There are five yachts in total, each with its own whimsical name: the Scarlet, the Ferdinand, the Bon Voyage, the Celebrity and the Capella. Each boat can accommodate up to 200 passengers. The boats are 50 meters long and 9.5 meters wide. They can reach speeds of 20 km/h and break ice up to 10 centimeters thick.
