Since the Czech Jan Vlcek bought at auction the club ship of the Czech inland navigation, the ship, built in 1979, has undergone numerous alterations: in addition to its change of location from Hamburg to Prague 600 kilometres away, the 80-metre yacht has also been completely converted. The Bayreuth designer Miro Pistek converted the ship into a luxurious golf hotel with a wellness zone, a conference hall and indoor golf facilities. On four decks and 2,400 square metres of useable surface, 34 hotel rooms in three different categories are now available to the guests. Spacious window areas as well as the choice of light materials and colours create a friendly ambience in the interior of the ship. Attractive accents are the Scala design tiles by Armstrong: a total of six different wood designs complement the luxurious atmosphere of the golf hotel.
