Michael Schmidt Yachtbau said the new building is the largest of its kind in northern Germany.

Michael Schmidt Yachtbau said it finished work on a new tempering oven/paint hall at its yard in Greifswald, Germany.

Responding to increasing demand for large carbon sailing yachts, the new facility, measuring 101 by 41 feet, is the largest of its kind in northern Germany, the company said.

MSY specializes in carbon sailing yachts, and the new oven will enable it to produce boats as large as 98 feet.

Having full control over the tempering of large components is crucial for quality control, an imperative consideration for MSY. The new facility also will be used for spray painting and is equipped with specialized lights and dust extraction.

The new hall is the latest addition to the production site MSY opened in Greifswald in December. Measuring about 32,300 square feet of floor space and about 5,380 square feet of office space, the new yard was designed and built for creating and outfitting large carbon sailing yachts.

“This reflects the strong ambitions which our yard has set out for the future,” MSY managing director Johannes Malzahn said in a statement. “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.”
