A day with a historical wooden race boat on the Danube

Boating and Sailing tour in Budapest

Tour Price : €399-499 Duration : 6-9 hours Languages: english Discount: The price is the total price for the whole group.

All day tour

If we start the tour at the morning we can go up to Visegrad to visit the Danube bend where the huge Danube river crosses the mountains. Or we can start from Esztergom and arrive to Budapest. I can not write down the feeling as you travel between picturesque mountains, historical ruins, living villages.

I do advise this tour for one or two because we should carry 30 gallons (more than a hundred liters) of gasoline and the boat is more comfortable for one or two on a long tour. Do not forget she was originally a race boat.

We can swim a lot or enjoy the speed. We can stop for a dinner on the riverside. I like to cook traditional Hungarian foods in a cauldron. Traditional fish soup, gulas, porkolt, lecso, paprikas krumpli, slambuc. I have had learnt a few years ago in a famous gourmet restaurant.

Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any special needs.  

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.
