›› Having retired from my lifetime career as an international boatbuilder, I started looking around for a boat for myself that combined sophistication with simplicity, speed with user-comfort. Unable to find such a yacht, the only option was to start up a new yard and build one myself. Michael Schmidt Yachtbau (MSY) is the result.‹‹

Michael Schmidt





Michael Schmidt first made a name in the yachting world in the 1970s by winning races all over the world in the small keelboat category. In the 1980s he started building super-light racing boots to compete in the Admiral’s Cup. Champions such as Düsselboot, Pinta, Outsider and Rubin were known for their innovation and bold character, and all became legends in the sailing world. Big innovations with full car- bon racing boats started already in 1982.
