The short story

Michael W. Schacht is an artist and designer living in Port Townsend, WA.

He graduated from the University of Washington with a BFA in Industrial Design in 1983, and in 1985 was hired by Bayliner Marine Corp., just before its meteoric rise to become the largest boatbuilder on earth. As a staff designer and later, a consultant, he was responsible for the styling, features integration and layouts of product lines including Capri, Maxum and Arriva runabouts, Ciera and Maxum stern-drive cruisers, Avanti express cruisers, and Bayliner Motoryachts.

Since then, he has contributed to the success of a wide range of marine manufacturers, architects and publishers, including Aspen Power Cats, Woodenboat Magazine, Cutwater Yachts, Glacier Bay Cats, Kingfisher Boats, Kurt Hughes Sailing Designs, McGowan Marine Design, Ranger Tugs and Wellcraft Marine.
