Claimed to be unique river cruise ship with stern wheel drive (diesel powered and rendered manoeuvrable thanks to bow thrusters). Original blades were fixed pitch which caused too much vibration, subsequently replaced by feathering wheels as per photo. Choice of propulsion system to minimise draught to permit operation when river levels low.

Thanks Eddyw.
Seems odd to fit fixed paddle blades in this day and age. No doubt there would have been a reason.
