The Ship’s Management

 

    At the beginning the Serenité was only a dream of two dedicated ship’s professionals. There was the captain, who, for a great many years, had safely steered large river boats on the European rivers. And there was the hotel manager whose workplace had been elegant and luxurious small cruise ships sailing the oceans. Both had almost done their utmost to ensure the satisfaction of the guests, but they thought it could be done more pefectly if they had their own boat. Even- tually their dream came true. A fine river boat was built, one whose measurements would allow them to sail most of Europe’s small canals and rivers. Since April 2001 the Serenité sails these scenic waterways mostly in Germany and France.

He spent most of his life time on the ships of the well-known Köln-Düsseldorfer shipping company and on the River Cloud of Hamburg based Sea Cloud Cruises. Now sailing his own boat he does not like to be called captain anymore. He is just Georg, the captain and the mate, the engineer and the carpenter, responsible for almost everything on board.
