Arosa Brava wiki

The ARosa Brava river ship is in the same vessel-class with A-Rosa Aqua and A-Rosa Viva ships. Each of them has installed energy-efficient four "Volvo Penta" diesel engines (model "D12-450MH", total power 1320 kW / 1800 HP). Each vessel is also equipped with 2 auxiliary diesel generators and 1 diesel generator for operations in port. Propulsion is by "Schottel" - 1 bow thruster type "SPJ 82", and 4 rudder propellers type "STP 200" /twin propellers). The boat's wheelhouse/bridge and the top deck's awnings can be lowered when passing under low bridges. The Brava ship offers complimentary bicycles on land tours and excursions in each of the visited ports.

A-Rosa Brava was launched in 2011 on April 1. The ship was christened in Frankfurt by Mrs. Miriam Brockmann - school teacher and winner in the contest for "most charming Frankfurterin". In the week before the naming ceremony, the vessel (on its own power) was navigated through the North Sea-Baltic Canal from Rostock to Cologne, where the last equipment of the boat was installed. During the March 2011 transfer passage, the ship was protected with wood paneling.
