It will have a capacity for 2,000 passengers and is designed for coastal and river cruises.
Ecoship 1 aims to reduce its carbon footprint by using advanced battery technology.
The ship's batteries will have a capacity of 7,500 kWh, providing enough power for a full day of sailing.
It will be equipped with energy-efficient technologies and sustainable materials.
The ship's design includes a retractable sail system to harness wind energy.
Launching this innovative cruise ship is a significant step towards sustainable, eco-friendly maritime transportation.
