On July 15, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin inspected the model of the future Moscow passenger electric ship – the first in the world that works all year round, even in winter. According to Moscow Transport, future river vessels will be 100% eco-friendly, without harmful emissions. Same as city electric buses – this is very important for the Moscow water area and the health of all residents. 

The Moscow vessels will also be spacious: about 22 meters in length, each with 42 seats, two of which are for people with disabilities. The cabin will have information screens, USB charging, Wi-Fi, places for scooters and bicycles, as well as comfortable seats and tables for working with a laptop. There will be panoramic windows also.
