Arne Schmidt and Thomas Lütje share a history in learning the craft, working and sailing together. Beginning with their apprenticeship as boatbuilders, followed by a shared boat and many races sailed together. So it was just a logical step to develop the CLASSIC COASTER in the nineties and the recent relaunch of the carefully refined MODERN COASTER design.
Schmidt looks back at more than 40 years as yacht broker – with a background as boat builder and wood merchant. He has the knowhow of the craft and in depth understanding of the material in his wake – topped by a sound experience in brokerage.
„For most of my clients from the early days I am still the first adress in yachting matters“ reports Schmidt proudly. The distribution of an enchanting boat like the CLASSIC or MODERN COASTER is a matter of passion for him.
Besides that Schmidt offers a wide range of services: the personal consultancy of new builds or secondhand boats, detailed care of contracts and the transaction of sales, financing and insurance matters, up to transport quoestions. He is familiar with the registration of vessels, VAT and customs issues.
