Motor yacht «Emily»

Your top-class nautical event on Lake Constance

The hotel's own motor yacht «Emily» is modelled on the style of the legendary wooden yachts of the thirties. Typical elements of the Belle Epoque were used for its construction. The result is an atmosphere that is both inviting and elegant.
