The motor ship Diamant sails on Lake Lucerne on a beautiful summer day fully loaded with happy guests.

Motor vessel Diamant

Our premier event vessel

Our new motorship is in operation since May 2017. In terms of travel quality, passenger amenities as well as technical innovation, the ship sets a new standard and represent a real milestone in Swiss navigation history.

On all five decks you can experience brand-new features and exciting surprises. These include the unique Nautilus gallery below deck, replete with underwater views. On the main deck, the spacious interior gallery and two elegant salons boast a glass dome and are reminiscent of a much larger cruise ship. The aqua terrace on the main deck aft allows everyone to be even closer to the lake and dip their toes in the pristine Alpine water. The open decks boast stylish, custom-crafted furniture and the right balance of places in the sun as well as in the shade. Everyone will be bound to enjoy sipping a cocktail at the Compass Lounge on the top deck.
