The shipyard

Boden-Werft GmbH is a German company, and a former shipyard, located in the port of Kressbronn on Lake Constance. The company was founded in 1919 as a shipyard, but the shipyard business was wound-up in 2011. The shipyard diversified into the building of swimming pools, and into operating a yacht harbour adjacent to the shipyard. These businesses still exist under the names Bodan Schwimmbadbau and Bodan Freizeit & Hafen.[1][2][3]

The company built many of the ferries and other vessels used on the larger lakes of the Alps, including vessels for the White Fleet on Lake Constance, for the Zürichsee-Schifffahrtsgesellschaft and the Zürichsee-Fähre Horgen–Meilen on Lake Zurich, and for the Società Navigazione del Lago di Lugano on Lake Lugano.[4][5][6]

There are plans to redevelop the shipyard for residential purposes.[7]
