Brazilian based Schaefer Yachts, founded by head designer Marcio Schaefer, is celebrating their 25th year in business along with a key milestone of delivering over 3,500 vessels worldwide ranging from 30 to 83 feet. As of January 2017, Schaefer Yachts expanded into the United States. “As we begin this twenty-fifth year for our company, it was a natural business evolution for us to enter the North American marketplace,” said Samuel Brito, CEO of Schaefer Yachts USA.
