UNITED BY A LOVE OF SAILING


We have a long and successful tradition of sailing in the person of Udo Schütz, our company’s founder. Our own racing yacht, the “CONTAINER”, won the Admiral’s Cup in 1993.

In our Composites division, SCHÜTZ develops and produces lightweight materials under the brand name CORMASTER®. These materials are used in the aerospace industry as well as in boat and yacht building.

For example, the company’s own, successful “CONTAINER” racing yachts were largely built using the high-performance material developed and produced in-house by SCHÜTZ.

CONTAINER – BUILT WITH CORMASTER®


The yacht CONTAINER, launched in 2008, still represents the state of the art in material technology. She embodies the success and durability of our lightweight honeycomb material in modern yacht building


The material currently used for the hull CORMASTER® CN1 is a specially developed Kevlar honeycomb, which is approx. 15 % lighter but offers the same strength, and was previously exclusively used in aircraft construction.
