Dear friends of the Serenité,

in October 2015 we promised to look for a buyer of our Serenité who will continue in the style our ship was well known for. Today the good news: We have been able to keep our promise. The ship has been sold to European Waterways in England and will be cruising the Caledonian Canal under her new name “Spirit of Scotland”.

European Waterways with 40 years experience in river and canal cruising operates a fleet of 18 luxury hotel barges with almost the same concept we created for the Serenité some 15 years ago. So there will be hardly any changes.

You are very welcome to board the “Spirit of Scotland” in the Highlands or any other barge owned by European Waterways. There will be a special offer for the seasons 2017 or 2018. For any help you might need we are still available: Tel. 0049 172 652 4378 or e-mail: or you go direct to 0044 1753 598555, email: The entire programme under

We hope you enjoy this news as much as we do and remain

with best regards,

Rita and Georg Ebert
