MS Amadeus Brilliant Wiki

The Germany-flagged riverboat Amadeus Brilliant (ENI number 04809350) is registered in Passau. The vessel was launched in 2010 (as "MS Lueftner") and built by the Dutch shipbuilding company Scheepswerf De Hoop BV (in Lobith, Holland).

The ship is powered by two Caterpillar marine diesel engines (model CAT C32 Acert / 4-stroke, 12-cylinder diesels) with combined power output 1,5 MW. The propulsion system is based on two propellers (aft) plus one bow thruster (VethJet with a Scania engine / output 331 kW). Onboard electricity is generated by two Scania DI12-70M diesel gensets plus two Stamford HCI 434F generators (total 662 kVA). Ship's fuel capacity (fuel tanks) is 100 m3.

In winter 2019-2020, the vessel underwent a 4-month drydock refurbishment. The drydocking project involved both interior redesign-renovations and technology upgrades (new smart TVs in all cabins, high-speed Wi-Fi coverage shipwide). New menus were also introduced in Panorama Restaurant and Panorama Bar Lounge. All the on-board amenities are up to the customary high AMADEUS standard, and you can enjoy lounging on the spacious Sun Deck with its Lido Bar, or you can unwind with a good book in the quiet and comfortable AMADEUS Club.
