Description of the vessel

The Lisbeth Oak, powered by electricity, was built in the UK in 1953. It is 11.58 metres long and 2.9 metres wide. It was originally conceived as a passenger vessel for 40 people and was used for pleasure cruises on Oldham Lake, near Manchester. Electric boat trips were still new at the time and quickly became popular. The biggest advantage of an electric boat is that it prevents air and water pollution and is very quiet and smooth-running. It is attractive for both private and commercial use.

In the early 1970s, when the artificial lake dried up, the boat had to be taken out, and for the next 20 years it was on land. In 1990 it found a new use on the Bridgewater Canal in Manchester. The new owner commissioned the Mark Stanley Company in Windsor to overhaul the vessel.

The ship was completely rebuilt, making her suitable for exclusive entertaining. The saloonwas made of solid teak with pale yellow lacquered panels, rounded interior details to match the floor of the same colour. All the seats are also made of this precious wood and arecomplemented by very comfortable olive green velvet cushions. Skilled craftsmen have created ornate carvings on both sides of the cabin exterior.

Now the Lisbeth has reached the next stage of her life in Riga, where on 23 July 2023 she made her maiden voyage on the City Canal from Bastejkalns pier.

Lisbeth is a magnificent pleasure and leisure vessel with a spacious saloon. It is perfect for sightseeing trips along the City Canal in Riga and the Daugava River. Rigabycanal has added
her to its existing fleet as the fifth ship together with Laima, Rebecca, Darling and Maria. Lisbeth will be available for sightseeing and sightseeing cruises.
