Maid Of The Mist

Maid Of The Mist

Burger Boat Company was contracted to fabricate the hull and superstructure modules for the new Maid Of The Mist Passenger Vessels, the JAMES V. GLENN and NIKOLA TESLA. These modules were then shipped to Buffolo, New York where they were lowered into the Niagara River Gorge for final assembly by the Maid Of The Mist team. The JAMES V. GLYNN and NIKOLA TESLA are the first all electric passenger vessels in the United States and went into operation in October 2020.
