Classic Boats Venice offers authentic Lagoon experiences with electric drive and style

Venice 20.01.2020 – Completely new perspectives on  Serenissima and its lagoon offers Classic Boats Venice S.a.s. (CBV). From Certosa, the owner-managed company rents out Venetian wooden boats with electric propulsion and lovingly renovated design classics for self-driving and cruising. Tours through nature, history and culinary delights of the lagoon show the inexhaustible wealth of forms of the region that is worthy of protection.

By founding Classic Boats Venice Carl Georg Zwerenz, Munich entrepreneur with Viennese roots, has made his lifelong love of beautiful boats his profession. His hand-picked fleet of classic boats carries travelers as stylishly as they do safely through the 550 square kilometers of water landscape at the gates of Venice. „Cruising the lagoon with our boats is certainly something new for all travelers to Venice, no matter how long they have known the city, “ explains Carl, as everyone in Certosa calls him, his offer. „The special thing about Classic Boats Venice is probably a special mixture, which is nourished from very different sources: a deep respect for the Venetian tradition, the highest demands, to give our guests wonderful hours, enthusiasm for technology, the will for sustainability and a big pinch of adventurousness. “

CBV offers various possibilities for enjoyment on the water:

Drive yourself on a traditional Venetian wooden boat with a GPS

Traditional Venetian wooden fishing boats form the bareboat charter fleet of CBV. If you want to be your own captain, rent one of these boats with electric drive, which you can drive without a boat license. Thanks to easy handling and careful instruction, even beginners can easily steer them. A special gimmick: self-drivers receive navigation assistance from a professional navigation device that guides them safely through the lagoon on pre-programmed routes.
