Always beautiful. A pity that ships like these have to be classed as 'ferries' (a term which has spread like a virus through the formerly precise nautical world). Donald.

There is no doubt that these beautiful Swiss steamers are more than simple ferries. However, they do service a prescribed route on a strict timetable and given the alternative of driving from one side of the lake to the other, are a necessity for many. I have had the pleasure of riding on every member of the fleet and can only hope they can be kept in service for years to come. They do have their own private shipyard and are re-built on a rotating timetable so the prospects look good. Don

Good to know that, Don. They are truly beautiful, and are surely high on the list of our international treasures. Donald.
