The story

Hensa stands for "experience on the water".

The Hensa shipping company shows a history of over 120 years.

The boat rental business of the Oswald family of fishermen and restaurateurs, founded in 1896, was continued by the two sons Engelbert and Robert and acquired and expanded in 1969 by Altendorf boat builder Albert Hensler. At that time, the Oswald family operated 7 boats with a capacity of 14 - 80 persons.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our loyal regular customers who have remained faithful to our shipping company for many years. We look forward to a good cooperation in the future!

We would be delighted to count you among our satisfied customers. Our shipping company is looking forward to meeting you.
