MSY completes new tempering oven & painting hall
Michael Schmidt Yachtbau has finished work on a new tempering oven/paint hall at its yard in Greifswald, Germany. Responding to the increasing demands for large carbon sailing yachts, the new facility, measuring 31 by 12.5 metres, is the largest of its kind in northern Germany.
Michael Schmidt Yachtbau (MSY) specialises in carbon sailing yachts, and the new oven will enable it to produce boats up to thirty metres in length. Having full control over the tempering of large components is crucial for quality control, an imperative consideration for MSY. The new facility will also be used for spray painting and is equipped with the appropriate specialised lights and dust extraction.
The new hall is the latest addition to a state-of-the-art production site opened by MSY in Greifswald last December. Measuring three thousand square metres of floor space and five hundred square metres of office space, the brand new yard was designed and built specifically for creating and fitting out large carbon sailing yachts.
“This reflects the strong ambitions which our yard has set out for the future,” says Johannes Malzahn, MSY’s new managing director. “It will eventually enable us to fit out between four and six yachts simultaneously and ensure that our highly experienced craftsmen have access to the very latest equipment.”
