Advance information - Summer 2017

Since the end of the 2001 season (when there were special afternoon cruises by MPV Italia
as well as MPV G Zanardelli operating timetabled sailings out of Desenzano)
the two motor paddle vessels are rarely advertised to operate public timetabled sailings

Sadly, official information about future public sailings is difficult to find (even locally)

Thereafter in addition to several private charter sailings
and the occasional special public  'Regatta Cruise'
both motor paddle vessels have traditionally been been found operating timetabled sailings
normally only at the Southern end of the lake
vice a smaller motor vessel on busy days during the peak-summer
but always on a non-advertised basis

More recently NO sailings are advertised in the main NLG timetable to be
operated by either of the two Motor Paddle Vessels

but MPV G Zanardelli can often be found operating some of the
short timetabled sailings between Riva and Malcasine via Limone
SUBLECT TO ANY PRIVATE CHARTER or other operational reason
MPV Italia can sometimes be found operating sailings commencing from Desenzano
vice a smaller motor vessel on busy days - but usually only Sundays and local holidays
again SUBLECT TO ANY PRIVATE CHARTER or other operational reasons
When necessary, the sailings are covered by an ordinary motor vessel
You are stronly advised to confirm locally a day or two before sailing
if you particularly want to sail on one of the old MPVs

Please e-mail me if you see either motor paddle vessel in service so the information
can be posted for the benefit of other visitors to this website
