The new vessels will be greener and will allow for more passengers and increased services.

The CGN says fuel consumption will drop by 40% and will be 30 times more efficient for a passenger to take the boat than a car.

The new boats will be assembled at the shipyard in Ouchy, but some elements will be pre-built in Poland.

The first sailings should be in 2022.
