Windermere Lake Cruises Vessel Launched onto the waters in England
MV Swift was launched into the waters of Windermere in the Lake District National Park of England. Damen Shipyards Group is building the vessel on location via the Damen Technical Cooperation for Windermere Lake Cruises.
At 34m, the vessel is slightly shorter than the company’s existing flagships, MV Swan and MV Teal. This will enable the vessel to dock at smaller jetties in the area, thereby providing economic stimulus to a wider pool of local businesses.
“The DTC concept makes it possible to be a Damen customer wherever you are in the world. This is the first time in Damen’s history that we have built a vessel in the UK and we are incredibly proud to have this opportunity. This is a great example of how British and Dutch companies can work together. Working with Windermere Lake Cruises has been, and continues to be, a joy,” Sales Manager of Damen Mike Besijn stated.
Windermere Lake Cruises operates a fleet of 16 vessels currently. Throughout the year, these vessels take more than 1.6 million passengers on tours, day trips and evening functions on England’s largest natural lake. Windermere Lake Cruises is one of the UK’s most popular attractions.
