Hochmuth Bootsbau AG was founded in 1960 by Hermann Hochmuth sel. (1934-1994). The end of the wooden boat era was heralded in the 1970s with the import of high-quality GRP motorboats from Scandinavian countries, thus laying the foundation for today’s shipyard as a modern commercial and service company.

At the end of 1998, the entire Hochmuth family completely separated from the shipyard and its activities.

1998 – 2012 the fortunes of Hochmuth Bootsbau AG were managed & managed by Hugo Scherer with Hans-Ueli Keller and Othmar Zingg.
