Nestled between the Albis and Zimmerberg hills lies the bent, almost banana-shaped, Lake Zurich. Here, Hensa Lago Marina is the Princess dealer for Lake Zurich and the surrounding area. At its boatyard in Altendorf, there is space for up to 360 boat moorings, as well as more available in Schmerikon or Rapperswil.
Björn Hensler, CEO at Hensa Lago Marina, told us: “Hensa Lago Marina is perfectly located on the upper lake of Zurich. Only a short boat trip away, you can reach the untouched Upper Lake region and discover the islands here. The demand in this area of Switzerland to provide five-star moorings alongside an incredible service is high, so we have continued to expand our facility over the last 60 years to keep up. We offer a great infrastructure here for customer’s ease of use, and each mooring comes allocated with a parking space. Altendorf train station is only 100 m away, which makes travelling to our marina from Zurich very easy.”
With over 60 years of experience, Hensa Lago Marina has a simple mantra: Your yacht, your mooring, your experience. And, the experience of each of their customers in Lake Zurich is at the heart of what they do here. Providing a five-star service, whether prior to purchase or during ownership, is paramount. From boat purchase, rental and chartering, to summer and winter moorings, servicing and aftercare – the Hensa Lago Marina team is on hand to support its owners.
“We provide a ready-to-go service for our owners. It’s completely flexible and means they have more time to relax and enjoy their boat and the lake. Whether it’s simply removing the covers for their arrival, checking the motor or carrying out a full service,” Björn explains. “During the summer months, we provide a protected and secure marina for owners to berth and begin their journeys. And in the winter, Altendorf’s purpose-built mooring hall comes into its own. Built in 1990, the four-storey warehouse can accommodate up to 220 boats. Securely stored indoors, our owners’ boats are protected from the elements, plus any routine service works and maintenance can be carried out by our team of engineers on-site.”
Hensa Lago Marina is a family-run company dating back to 1957 and handed down through three generations. Today, Oliver and Björn Hensler continue to serve boat owners in the area, whether they are new to ownership or a frequent visitor of the lake.
From the impressive high peaks of Switzerland to its numerous idyllic lakes, it is clear to see why this location is favoured by travellers. And especially on Lake Zurich, with its neighbouring islands, remote lakesides and popular amenities, a boat owner can find themselves spoilt for choice.
