Germany. Johannes Malzahn becomes new managing director of MSY

Wednesday, 19 April 2017



Michael Schmidt Yachtbau in Germany has appointed Johannes Malzahn as the yard’s new managing director with full responsibility for all day-to-day business. The company owner Michael Schmidt will stay on as a supervisor and adviser to the management team, as well as long-term investor.

While Michael Schmidt Yachtbau (MSY) may have started almost as a hobby for Mi-chael Schmidt, it has quickly developed into a major player in the construction of fast-cruising sailing boats in the twenty-to-thirty-metre range. Current developments and a plethora of new orders have now led the company to implement a reorganisation de-signed to future-proof its growth ambitions.

MSY’s vision rests upon the twin pillars of major investments in a new construction facility (completed late last year) and an energetic new team. In addition to Johannes Malzahn, a passionate sailor with a rich personal experience of boatbuilding, the management counts among its ranks purchasing manager Andreas Bock, a success-ful racer on both water and ice, and marketing & sales director Tijl Hetterschijt, an-other keen yachtsman with lots of long-distance cruising experience. Plus Luca Giammattei as production manager with his long lasting expertise in building large custom sailing yachts
