Maybach Boat

The two pictures above are showing an original Swedish boat from the 19th century made of wood that was equipped with one of the first boat engines of the Daimler- Motor Company. The engine with the series number 722 is from the year 1893 and generated 6,5 hp at 570 rpm. This unique combination proved its working order, among others, also on occasion of a voyage on the Rhine.

Apart from further sail- and motor boats, like the sports boat shown at the bottom right, the maritime exhibition also includes many ship models, the major part of which is on exhibit in the Model Museum. Very interesting are also the three rare small submarines from WW II on exhibit in the open air grounds and the world's largest model ship, the "Bremen IV", which is stationed in the Liller Halle.
