"The participants are still raving about this wonderful evening on Lake Lucerne."
Carola Pfützner | Assistant Director
Hochschule Luzern – Wirtschaft

"The participants are still raving about this wonderful evening on Lake Lucerne."

In spring 2023, we were able to enjoy a unique event experience for a staff event organised by the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts' Department of Business:
We hired the motor vessel "Gotthard" from the Lake Lucerne Navigation Company. Planning this event for 180 people was extremely straightforward thanks to the professional support of the SGV team. Our wishes were always catered for and I always received very quick and friendly feedback. We were also warmly welcomed on board; the service and kitchen team spoilt us with culinary delights and even the sun made an appearance, although the weather forecast had predicted otherwise.

"Our boat trip on the steamship Gallia was a great experience for everyone involved."

The combination of good food, a great crew and a unique panorama contributed to a successful anniversary event.  As a corporate client, we particularly appreciated the professional organisation and efficient cooperation with SGV. We look forward to the next time. Ship ahoy!

"I was particularly impressed by how smoothly everything went on the ship."

It was pleasing to see how well the various event components, from the entertainment to the catering, harmonised with each other, resulting in an unforgettable experience for everyone involved. I was particularly impressed by the modern facilities and the delicious food on the ship, which helped to make the participants feel comfortable and well looked after.  The cooperation in the run-up to the event and at the event itself was always very professional and pleasant. I really appreciated the clear communication and quick response times. All needs and concerns were addressed, which ultimately led to a very simple and uncomplicated event.

"We can recommend this unique wedding location to anyone."

In beautiful weather and summery temperatures, we were able to enjoy a breathtaking trip on the steamboat Stadt Luzern together with our guests. From the uncomplicated organisation to the catering and the very charming crew team, everything was perfect. We will always have fond memories of our aperitif cruise and can recommend this beautiful and unique wedding location to everyone.

"We were once again impressed by the friendliness of the crew."

"We were once again impressed by the friendliness of the crew."

We at the Event- und Incentive-Agentur lucentive book the ships of the Lucerne Navigation Company exclusively for our events. This gives our events a special touch, as we benefit from the outstanding quality of service, the unique atmosphere and the impressive backdrop of Lake Lucerne. The team's commitment, coupled with their attention to detail, makes every trip an unforgettable experience for our customers. 
Working with the boat hire trio is extremely pleasant. Michèle Dubacher and her team are quick and competent when it comes to requests for quotations, questions about the boats, timing or discussing details. Their professional support plays a key role in ensuring that our events run smoothly. 
In August 2023, we had the pleasure of using the steamboat "DS Uri" exclusively for the staff outing of our client from the Basel region. We enjoyed a delicious lunch on board in glorious weather. We were once again impressed by the friendliness of the on-board staff. The highlight of this trip was not only the exquisite food, but above all the fact that everything ran smoothly and our customer was extremely satisfied.

We really enjoyed the delicious brunch, the friendly service, the modern ship and the beautiful view. Everything went very smoothly, from the enquiry to the menu selection, the facilitation of additional requests and the execution of the event.  It was noticeable that the employees were very committed and passionate about their job.
