Steam Yacht Louise

120 Years on Geneva Lake!

The restored Steam Yacht Louise, built in 1902, allows you an opportunity to experience the elegance of Lake Geneva’s Golden Era. Her charm comes not only from polished brass and gleaming mahogany, but also from the engineer operating a vintage steam engine as you glide across the water. The Louise has two decks furnished with clear side curtains for inclement weather and an enclosed cabin area with wet bar and head. Treat your guests to an extraordinary experience aboard the Louise!

Maximum 50
