American Cruise Lines American Constellation cruise ship

The new coastal riverboat set sail in April 2017. The "American Constellation" name was inspired by the numerous American ships named "Constellation" which have honoured the United States. The original US Naval sailing frigate of 1797, USS Constellation, and the newest ship of American Cruise Lines were both built in Maryland shipyards. American Constellation left for her first cruise from Constellation Pier, next to where retired USS Constellation is currently docked.

American Constellation Wiki

The ship has a modern propulsion system consisting of 2x azimuth thrusters ("Z-drives") manufactured by Veth (Holland). These 360-degree rotating propellers (1x forward, 1x aft) provide the boat with greater manoeuvrability and berthing flexibility.

The ship is powered by 2x Caterpillar marine engines running on low-sulfur diesel. These modern engines require less fuel and produce fewer emissions (COx, NOx, SOx) and soot particles in comparison to other boats on the US river cruising market.
