Budapest Szentendre with a historical power boat

Boating and Sailing tour in Budapest, Szentendre

Tour Price : €199-299 Duration : 3-6 hours Languages: english Discount: The price is the total price for the group.

This is a historical small city about 20 kms away from Budapest. It is called the city of painters. If you visit Szentendre you will understand why. On the river it is an hour long journey to arrive there with my historical power boat. We will travel on the small Danube, which is big enough for power boats, but small enough to be romantic. About an hour long is the way back. It is quite good to have a few hours long walk on the devious and narrow cobblestone streets and the Italian style squares. Szentendre is a nice place to have a dinner. I can show you the best places I know. 

Normally it is a three or four hours long tour but depending on your needs it can be longer.

If the temperature of the Danube is high enough to swim, we can stop for it. We can visit a small car-free island called Luppa where you can see only flood-proof summer houses because in an average year the island is under the water two times.

We can stop for a dinner on the riverside too. I like to cook traditional Hungarian foods in a cauldron. 

I have a quite rare oldtimer wooden powerboat from the early 40's. She was a race boat until the 60's. When I bought her in the 90's the river police still had not the chance to reach me. She is 134 kgs and 4,1 meters (300 pounds and 13 feet 5 inches). She could use a 80 horsepower engine on a race but for a daily cruise we will use a 25 HP engine because of the carrying capacity limit.

If you cruise with this historical boat, you will never forget it. 

It is a perfect tour for two, or for two with one or two little child. 

The carrying capacity of the boat apart me is 200kgs (441 pounds). If you and your friends/family sum is more I do advise two shorter tours. The tour depends on the weather. If it is too windy or stormy we adjourn the tour. If you are not familiar with small boats please do not hesitate to ask for advices. Do not afraid, she is a safe boat but you should wear the right clothes for your comfort.

Depending on the weather we can cruise from April to October. If you prefer adventure we can travel with a sliding rigger boat as well or with a kayak.
