John Halter was born in 1943. He grew up with his 11 brothers and sisters in Harbor Springs Michigan, and has 2 sons who both live in California.
Besides living in Harbor Springs Michigan, John lived 7 years in Detroit, 10 years in Chicago, and the last 39 years in Dallas.
John has owned 9 different boats, from a Sunfish to a J29. He learned how to race on the J29, and once competed in races 50 times in a 12 month period. He now occasionally competes in a Texoma Sailing Club race.
John's present boat, (which he has owned for 36 years), is a Hunter 33, and he enjoys sailing it with his first mate Louise.
Thanks to his many great friends and customers, he has sailed much of the adjoining US and Caribbean waters. His favorite sailing area, however is the Great Lakes.
Besides sailing and working (creating) which he loves, he is an avid tennis player, and plays 2-3 times / week.
John was released from a corporate job when he was 29 years old. He vowed it would never happen again, so he started his own company(s). One of John's companies sold computer accessories which he had invented. At one time his products were in every major computer store in the U.S. The computer industry was brutal. He made a lot of money but in the end lost even more.
Because John can invent on demand, he created products for the market he truly loves. Working around boats, being on the water, nurturing new products, and most important, communicating with his sailboat customers, makes every day a holiday for John.
