In the year 2001, a product was introduced to the presentations technique company Stefan Wienecke GmbH – LED based lighting.
Stefan Wienecke and Kristin Schaedel, yacht owners themselves, immediately realised the potential of this product in correlation to yachts and other seaworthy vessels.
After considerable planning the product was professionally modified to become utterly watertight and such was Stefan Wienecke’s faith in his new product that the first LED illuminated lettering was fitted to his own yacht, under much scrutiny and speculation - after all, one is not supposed to drill holes in the hull of one's yacht!
But, all critic was superfluous: many sea miles were sailed, many harbours were visited, tests and studies were performed with overwhelming results - the new lettering was a complete success.
At the Boot 2003 in Duesseldorf Stefan Wienecke first introduced the letter „T“ illuminated in red, which immediately caught the eye of Albert Drettmann from Elegance Yachts. „I must have that!“ was his convinced reaction and in March 2003 the first Elegance yacht was equipped with LED illuminating lettering, and the YACHTLITE label was founded.
The enthusiasm escalated and soon several Drettmann yachts received their name in YACHTLITE lettering. During the course of 2004, on their travels to Mallorca, Italy and Croatia among many others, the Elegance yachts aroused much curiosity in everyone concerned: ship owners, captains and ship builders alike.
Thus YACHTLITE was the first business establishment to introduce the concept of LED illuminated yacht lettering and to manufacture the top quality marketable product. And that is why YACHTLITE is indeed the "original" – an idea thought out and carried out by Stefan Wienecke.
Today, YACHTLITE remains, with its unequalled top quality and the almost unlimited design, colour and material possibilities, the global market leader for illuminated lettering with countless vessels from 5,40 to currently 163 metres length bearing in total over 5,000 "Yachtlites" in all the harbours of the world.
