Two party organizers from the city of Regensburg, in southeastern Germany, (in Bavaria, a port at the confluence of the Danube and Regen Rivers) were fed up with hiring old cruise boats with run down interiors for their events.
Now they have designed their own luxury version by converting an old Danube pleasure boat and hiring Porsche Design to help them achieve their dream boat.
Johannes Buchner and Michael Gossler, decided in 2009 to transform a tour boat
named Danubian ‘Renate II’, into a luxury floating club lounge.
Indeed, from a boat with three decks, the two protagonists have sought the services of the creative team of Porsche Design Studio to develop on more than 900 m², an exclusive design, without compromise, combining the sport, superior elegance and dynamic look, so typical of the Porsche Design brand.
This new concept called ‘Catwalk’ has several dance floors, a restaurant, bar and DJ booth.
For decoration, Porsche has played on light colors, clean lines and functional formats.
The boat is currently docked in Vienna, but its two commissioners want to take ‘Catwalk’ across Europe for a festive trip. Ultimately, their goal is to make ‘Catwalk’ a chain worldwide.
With a dream to have a ‘Catwalk’ …in London, Berlin, Istanbul, St. Tropez, Singapore, Sydney, Ibiza, Hong Kong, Miami and in New York.
