Your Home On The Water

HISTORY

In 1962 a group of investors and developers called Project Fontana, Inc. headed by Fred Gartz, of Lake Geneva, developed the multi-million-dollar resort complex. Twenty acres of swamp land were dredged to form the Abbey Harbor and Abbey Hotel. The beach and roadway in Fontana were expanded and the ground was broken for the construction of the home anchorage of the marina. The marina was opened to boaters in 1963. Some of the original members of 1963 are still active boaters in the Yacht Club today. The process that some lifestyles never change, never lose their values, and never get boring.

It was designed and built with one thought in mind, to serve the boating world with quiet and safe anchorage in a setting with services and facilities that are unequaled, located on beautiful Geneva Lake.
