Scheurer Bootswerft merges with Fiberfoam Austria

The Swiss-based Scheurer Bootswerft has merged with Fiberfoam Austria AG, and will relocate the mast manufacturer to its HQ in Nidau.

Sailing mast manufacturer Fiberfoam Austria was founded over 30 years ago and specialises in the development and production of carbon masts and composite sail battens, including flat and tapered profiles which are custom designed for modern rigs.

Barbara and Scott Anderson, the owners of Fiberfoam Austria share, commented:

Scheurer Bootswerft operates as a boatyard on Lake Biel in Nidau, manufacturing motorboats and sailing boats for over 50 years, including the A-Cat, the fastest single-handed sailing catamaran. Services include engine mechanics, and GRP / CFRP (carbon composites) work through to complete restoration of wooden boats. Temperature-controlled winter storage is also available.

The company also trains EFZ boat builders and EFZ boat specialists, ensuring there will be a supply of well-trained specialist staff in the future.

Aron Steinmann, Managing Director of Scheurer Bootswerft AG, said:

With this merger, Scheurer Bootswerft is expanding its competences in the composite sector and will manufacture products in Switzerland.
