About us


Our spirit

MP2about 1

Markus:  The happiest days of my childhood were those I spent with my father on the lake on his sailing boat.  As I grew older those moments full of freedom and discoveries still impressed me greatly, filled me with peace and provided a certain contrast to everyday life. I knew that one day I would be captain of a sailing boat at sea. I love being on the water and showing our guests how wonderful and yet simple life at sea can be. Being able to share my passion as skipper of the LUOPAN means everything to me!

Petra: Seeing that our guest can relax on board makes me happy, when they slow down and forget their daily routine, when they just have time for themselves, for their families and friends. When they are sitting on the sundeck with a drink, as we move gently towards the sun, discovering new horizons…

Our ethos: When you are happy, we are happy, too!

We are here for you
