State boating company Mahart has bought 20 hotel ships from French manufacturer Nicols, government commissioner Máriusz Révész announced on Tuesday.

The first ship delivered will be presented at the Travel Exhibition in February. Ten ships will arrive this year and a further ten next year.

Révész underlined that the vessels cost a total of Ft 1.5 billion, within the previously set budget of Ft 1.6 billion.

The hotel ships will travel on the Tisza River, where Mahart has begun building ports.

The boats will be tested in the summer and commercial activity will start in the summer of 2020.
