This Year the First in the USSR and Russian Federation History Cruising Motorboat to Be Launched

March 18, 2010

This summer, the first in the USSR and Russian history cruising motorboat is to be launched, said the Head of the Federal Tourism Agency (Rosturizm) Anatoly Yarochkin at the exhibition “Inturmarket-2010”.

According to him, the motorboat “Sura” was developed by GAMA Company Group, Nizhny Novgorod. The vessel is being constructed at the Gorodets Shipbuilding Yard.

“This is a paddle motorboat with a draught of only 60 cm which ensures the opportunity of navigating minor rivers (Oka, Sura, Northern Dvina and some others) where the navigation was stopped due to their shoaling and impossibility to operate existing motorboats,” highlighted A. Yarochkin.

The cost of the leading ship is RUR 60 mln.

The Director of GAMA CG Dmitry Galkin, in his turn, declared that he was hoping for starting serial construction of such vessels, so as to broaden the range of offered cruise programmes and renew navigation at many rivers.

Dmitry Galkin also said that the company was developing a draft design of motorboat “Zolotoe Koltso” (Golden Ring) with larger tonnage. It is to be operated on the route “Moskovskaya Krugosvetka” (Moscow World Cruise) along the Moskva, Oka and Volga rivers.

The motorboat Sura of 130 ton displacement is capable of carrying 40 passengers.
