Brim Explorer, the world’s first ultra-modern clean tourist vessel has begun taking visitors out into the pristine waters of Tromsø, Norway following an official launch and baptism ceremony.
Hundreds of people gathered to witness the event, taking the opportunity to appreciate the unique hybrid electric vessel, designed specifically to meet growing environmental requirements now and in the future, while allowing tourists to witness the peaceful beauty of the North Norwegian Fjords.
The silent beauty of the region can truly be appreciated when the vessel is propelled by batteries alone, eliminating the noise and vibration of a normal ship engine running on diesel.
“This has been super rewarding even though it has been hard work,” said Brim chief executive and co-founder Agnes Arnadottir, explaining the process of being inspired to build a new generation of boats. “We now know every single part, every nut and bolt, on this ship.”
