At the lake of Zurich on 9oo0 boat places are available, and several Thousand people are on the waiting lists of municipalities. Until the dream of a place come true, may well take 15 years. The limited capacity is a breeding ground for excessive profits.

The Price watchdog has found from one municipality to another significant tariff differences. It was in need of explanation, he writes.

the reason for the investigation was that repeated Local reported because of the different rates for the Parking of a boat on the lakeshore at the price supervisor. Results of the recorded inquiry, the price monitor, published on Thursday in your Newsletter.

The most expensive water in place of 1580 Swiss francs in the year, the cheapest costs, therefore, only around 144 Swiss francs. Differences in facility age and comfort of the facility could affect the price, writes Monsieur Prix, Stefan Meier, Hans. Nevertheless, he sees.

to have The boat at any time ready to drive in the water, costs in Montreux, VD at lake Geneva at the most. The second highest Tariff Lachen on the lake of Zurich. At the bottom of the list romanshorn on lake Constance, Nyon, VD of the lake and the Gambarogno TI on Lago Maggiore.

Huge price differences there is also the fee for entry on a waiting list for boat spaces. Five years costs between 220 and 10 francs have to Wait. Here, neither comfort nor investment in a boat plant played a role, writes Meier, Hans. In some communities, the Wait for the boat, as it is even free.

A justification for the price difference of more than 1 to 20 of the price supervisor does not see, in the beginning, as he writes. "Such a charge no longer seems to be often ( ... ) ( ... ) to be consistent with the costs in Relation, but only to pursue the purpose of demand management, and throttling."

most places costs on the waiting list in some lake Zurich communities. 220 Swiss francs for Waiting Männedorf ZH required, behind the city of Zürich and Küsnacht ZH with 180 Swiss francs consequences. But it's also different: Rapperswil SG and Lachen – also on the lake of Zurich – don't want money for the space on the waiting list.

the 10 francs of the list takes place in Rorschach, SG, as well as in Pully VD on lake Geneva. Free the waiting place also in Geneva, Vevey, VD, new castle, in the Bernese Oberland communities Brienz, Thun and Spiez as well as in Lugano.


Meier, Hans appeal now wants to confront the communities with disproportionately high fees for the mooring rental and boat places with the results of his investigation. He reserve the right to make a later formal recommendations, it says in the Newsletter.

In the survey, the ports of the public sector in municipalities with more than 5000 inhabitants were taken into account.
