Preserved paddle tug at : Zoltan Foundation Maritime Museum at Neszmely, Hungary
Paddle tug Neszmely (ex Bakony)
is moored on the Danube as part of a small floating "museum" at Szent Ilona bay, at the village of
Neszmely. Built in 1957, is the last example of this
type of ship built at Obuda shipyard.
By 2003 she was in very poor condition and was bought at auction for preservation. Neszmely now provides accommodation for up to 48 people as part of a "Forest School" operation, which is a popular one-week long "outward bound" course in the Hungarian education curriculum. She is also available for public accommodation.
Paddle wheels have been removed.
