About the ship
The hovercraft Biryusa has been built in the Leningrad region in Russia at the Parma shipyard.
The craft has a cushion height of 0.9 m/2.95 ft which allows it to navigate over land, ice or water, with guests resting comfortably in reclining seats until they reach final destination.
The propellers allow the craft to turn on site and reverse, which makes it possible to reach the most beautiful and inaccessible spots along the itinerary and to deliver guests to any unequipped shore. Double glazing will ensure additional noise and heat insulation. There is a restroom and spacious luggage room onboard. Enjoy a unique mix of comfort and unparalleled accessibility as you encounter Baikal at its finest.
The vessel is equipped with modern navigation facilities and goes at a speed of up to 50 km/h (31 MpH) on smooth water and 60 km/h (37.3 MpH) on ice.
