Carbon Yachts co-founder Peter Hrones’ relationship with Michael Schmidt spans almost 30 years. With Hrones importing over 500 of Michaels Hanse Yachts into Australia and New Zealand over 15 years. Throughout that period, Hanse Yachts and Peter’s Windcraft experienced similar growth and success, with both businesses eventually being sold. In that time, Peter says:
“The thing I learnt from Michael most was keeping the construction, the build and the sailing simple,”
Naturally, Hrones and Schmidt have partnered again to bring yyachts to Asia-pacific
