Stadt Luzern De-stored

On Monday 29th October Stadt Luzern's outgoing Captain Kuno Stein and her new master Roger Maurer, who will take command on completion of her rebuild, spent the day clearing the wheelhouse, office and service rooms of equipment and files. These were all put into safe storage before the ship is passed over to Shiptec, the independent company at the Luzern shipyard which will undertake the work of her rebuild which is estimated to cost 12.5 million Swiss francs and take about two years to complete.

At present Europa is in the undercover dry-dock at Lucerne so it will be February before Stadt Luzern moves in for commencement of the major work.
