The Maid of the Mist, the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, New York Power Authority and ABB announced on Oct. 6, 2020, that the Maid of the Mist, the iconic boat tour that has navigated the waters below Niagara Falls since 1846, has launched the first two new all-electric, zero-emission passenger vessels in the United States. Guests from around the world will now enjoy a smoother, quieter and greener ride when visiting the nation’s oldest state park. “Niagara Falls is a wonder of the world unique to Western New York and Maid of the Mist has given people from all walks of life an up-close look at its majesty for more than 150 years,” said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. “Having this natural wonder in our backyard means we have a special responsibility as its steward and protecting it for future generations. This new fleet of all-electric vessels will protect the health of our waterways and environment and is another example of New York State building back better, smarter and greener.” “The launch of the James V. Glynn and Nikola Tesla, the first passenger vessels of their kind in the United States, will markedly enhance the visitor experience, providing a smooth, quiet trip to and from the base of Niagara Falls,” said Maid of the Mist President Christopher M. Glynn. “With no engine noise, our guests will be amazed by the sounds of nature and the roar of the falls they will hear from the decks of our vessels.” On May 4, 2019, Maid of the Mist President Christopher M. Glynn announced the construction of two all-electric, zero-free vessels, the first of their kind built in the United States. The boats were originally scheduled to launch in September 2019[24] but, as of October 2019, are now expected to launch sometime in 2020.[25] The boats are trucked in sections to a harbor near the falls and assembled there. The catamaran hull is welded 5086 H116 aluminum, and is 27.5 m (90 ft) long and 10.4 m (34 ft) wide, with a 1.7 m (5 ft 7 in) draft, and can carry 500 people. Each boat has 316 kWh batteries powering 400 kW motors. A ride is 20 minutes, and the batteries are then charged to 80% in seven minutes.[26] The steel and diesel boats Maid of the Mist VI (1990) w (en)
