Boat builder for racing shells.

Markus Graf grew up in Berlingen and Steckborn am Untersee, where he also spent his entire school days. This was followed by a 4-year apprenticeship as a boat builder at the Heinrich boatyard in Kreuzlingen and a 5-year apprenticeship as a racing shell builder for the Stämpfli company in Zurich. He has been an independent boat builder in Kreuzlingen since 1986. In 1996 he built a new shipyard and since then has been the host for the Bènèteau company’s Bodensee agency (sailing and motor yachts).
