The MS Bürgenstock was developed to bring guests, visitors, and employees of the Bürgenstock Resort every hour from Lucerne to Kehrsiten and back.
In view of the high cycle frequency (17 times a day) and daily use, 2 points were particularly considered in the design:

Operating costs optimization and availability at all times.

The following properties make the MS Bürgenstock special:

- Highly efficient ship design
- Approval for 300 people
- 20 knots (37 km / h)
- Easy maneuverability
- Attractive appearance
- Efficient drive and energy concept

For the drive system, the innovative but proven hybrid energy and drive system from Siemens / Shiptec was used. In Lucerne lake, the ship will only operate in electric mode, the diesel engines will remain switched off. The batteries are recharged during the journey via the cross funnel.
