Welcome On Board...


The boat was built in Mainz in 1922 and was used by the municipal authorities until the end of the 1950s. At the beginning of the 1960s she was converted by a French artist to a houseboat. At the end of 2005, Arthur Fischer discovered the boat in Lampertheim on a ship cemetery on the Rheinkanal. The condition was devastating, but the good piece swam and the engine spun. But that was all. From 2006 to 2009, the boat was completely restored, repaired, and can be used again since then for fun journeys.
