In April 1969 an accountant of the boatyard Gade had the idea to found a class association. Since then, several fleets have been created, the largest is at the Waldsee in Langen near Frankfurt with about twenty boats, at the Baldeneysee in Essen there are about ten boats, five of them at the EWSC alone. At the Unterbacher See in Düsseldorf, Lake Constance, Lake Lucerne you can rent Lis dinghies, at the Rursee in the Eifel you can also charter them. In Holland, Belgium, Switzerland and Spain she is just as much at home as in other countries. In the past the boatyard sold 7 boats e.g. to Bangladesh to teach navy soldiers how to sail! In the meantime even a location in the Philippines was reported. These are only some locations of Lis boats worldwide.
