About the Vessel
Venice boat was originally designed and built before 1940 and manufactured until 1960. This was a typical Venetian passenger motor boat “Vaporetto.” A Vaporetto is a water bus or water taxi that operates in Venice, Italy. There are total 19 reserved lines serving local people of Venice.
The boat is also being used for travelling purpose between Venice and its nearby islands, such as Murano and Lido. The term “Vaporetto” could be understood as "little steamer." The natives call it as “Vaporetto Batèo.” The water taxi line is operated by the Venetian public transportation system named as “Azienda del Consorzio Trasporti Veneziano” or (Actv).
