More info

The ship was put into service in 1959 and acted as a tugboat for 17 years, to then be used by Greenpeace as an action ship. Since 2002 it is a museum ship. After the first general overhaul in 1963, the Elbe was the most powerful tug in the world until the launch of the Zwarte Zee (IV) tug. For day trips, the ship can take 80 passengers.
