Manitowoc, Wis. boat builder Burger Boat Company announced it has launched a new passenger vessel for Chicago's First Lady Cruises.

The 98-foot steel vessel, Chicago's Emerald Lady, can serve up to 250 passengers and is designed by Mark Pudlo, Principal, Seacraft Design in Sturgeon Bay, Wis. The vessel is built with energy-efficient Caterpillar engines providing a sustainable option that lowers emissions, Burger said.

"The new vessel offers comfortable open-air top deck seating with plenty of space for social distancing, providing official Chicago Architecture Foundation Center River Cruise guests with 360-degree views of our city's storied skyline," said Holly Agra, President of Chicago's First Lady Cruises.

Chicago's Emerald Lady is the third passenger vessel Burger has built for the company, following Chicago's Classic Lady and Chicago's Leading Lady.
