Lake Königssee Shipping has 18 almost identical electric motor boats (EMB). The boat shape has grown historically and dates back to the beginning of electric passenger shipping. Since 1909, Lake Königssee’s boats have been electrically operated. Their energy comes from rechargeable batteries which are charged overnight. During the day, the boats glide silently and eco-friendly over Lake Königssee at an average speed of 12 km/h.
Each boat is about 20m long, 3.50m wide and can carry around 93 people. However, due to kid's buggies and backpacks etc. only about 80 passengers are transported within the timetable.
By the way, the boats are built and repaired by our staff at the in-house boatyard on Lake Königssee.
Please note that there are no toilets on board and there is no catering on the boats!
The EMB RAMSAU is the smallest boat in the fleet and was the masterpiece of our boat builder. There is only one boat of this size. It is electrically powered and offers seating for 25 people. The EMB RAMSAU has a length of 9.50m and a width of 2.42m. There are no toilets on the boat.
