Lady Betty

Originally used as an Admiral’s launch, Lady Betty was built in England in 1894 under the reign of Queen Victoria and has become the oldest floating ship in Venice!

Before moving to Venice in 2019, the majestic former steamboat was completely restored by Dennett Boat Builders on the Thames and converted to hybrid propulsion.

This enables you to enjoy the silence of electric propulsion without losing the capability and secureness of a new Perkins Diesel engine as a backup and allowing more power wherever needed.
