Special details

The Sulomaro can transport all kinds of special cargo, they take even a complete train on board! . To "level" the schip in the water she has several ballast tanks. In the bow, under the side decks and the cargo hold and two at the stern. The ballast tanks are also used to reduce the vertical clearance and to be able to pass under low bridges.

If there is high load on board (for example, containers can be loaded four up) . The wheelhouse t can be raised 10 metre,s . The already beautiful view around become,s then phenomenal. To sail under extremely low bridges the roof of the wheelhouse can be lowered to the windowsills, the kaptain then puts his head through a special hatch in the roof.

On board you wil be the only guest, and therefore diner each evening at the "Captains table" !!
