LeipzigBoot am Cospudener See ©H. König
In order to protect the natural habitats in and around Leipzig, a special type of boat has been designed which is ideal for the local waterways. Known as the LeipzigBoat, the low-emissions motor and the shape of the hull allow a shallow draught and only produce a light wash, protecting the flora and fauna habitats on the banks. The vessel was unveiled at the Beach&Boat exhibition on 12 February 2009  in Leipzig. Two models are available: Type I for 6 people and Type II for up to 18 passengers.
