The world's first purely electrically operated car ferry saves around 14,000 liters of diesel fuel a year compared to the old ferry.
The world's first ever electric/solar-fuelled ferry was created in our workshop. The Sankta Maria 2 ferry sails between the Wasserbillig and Oberbillig communes on the Moselle and thus bridges Germany and Luxembourg. The efficient transmission and the unique hydrodynamic design of this emissions-free ship help save a yearly consumption of 14,000 litres of diesel.
We custom-build your ferries to tailor to you and your needs.

a maximum of comfort
Each ship provides its passengers with maximum comfort: Barrier-free access allows easier boarding for wheelchair users, prams and people with walking aids. in addition to this, there are spacious areas reserved for wheelchairs.
Depending on the customer's requirements, our ships can also have a separate passageway for wheelchair users/passengers with walking aids. The walkway can be lowered from the operating platform at the push of a button, so no additional members of staff is required.
For mooring, we generally use two mooring magnets type LE 8; 1530N. This enables the ship to be moored from the operating platform, thus saving on additional members of staff and time as well as increases security while the ship is being operated.
Ampereship offers high-quality interior fittings for all areas onboard the ship, be it in the passenger lounge, the wet rooms or in the "crew only" areas.
We offer fittings and layouts in all possible variations. And all without cutting back on quality. Our special focus is energy-efficient heat insulation. The special insulation is an important detail for ensuring the well-being of the passengers and not least an important component of an energy-efficient ship.
