Lurssen is unquestionably one of the world’s leading builders of large luxury motor, mega and giga yachts. They have the reliability and experience of a family that has been building standard-setting yachts and ships since 1875. They are based in Germany with headquarters in Bremen-Vegesack with five shipyards throughout northern Germany.
More than 13,000 boats and ships built since 1875, many of them still in service after decades of use. Unlike any other shipyard, Lurssen has delivered 11 out of the 20 largest yachts built in the past 20 years. First place goes to “MY Azzam” (2015), measuring an impressive 180.65m and not only setting a record for length and speed, for which she exceeds 30 knots but also for her swift building time of less than 3 years. “MY Dilbar” (2016), the biggest yacht in the world in terms of gross tonnage, loaded with highly sophisticated technology, she is one of the most complex and challenging yachts ever built. To name but a few of their iconic motor yachts “Al Said, A+, Nord, Al Salamah, Rising Sun, Flying Fox and Crescent” all measuring between 130-156m in length and lastly “Octopus” launched in 2003 and commissioned for the co-founder of Microsoft, Paul Allen.
In 1875, Friedrich Lurssen founds the company and sets up a boat building workshop in Aumund near Bremen, Germany and builds the very first 6 metre motor boat “REMS” with Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach. In the early 1900’s the yard continues to expand and includes a site in Bremen-Vegesack where there is direct access to the open water.
In 1925, the yard celebrates two major milestones, its 50th anniversary and the building of its 10,000th vessel, a 14-metre wooden wooden motor yacht and sister ship of the “Onkel Fid II.”
Prior to Lurssen celebrating a century in business, “MY Carinthia VI” redefines yacht design, her exterior design setting new worldwide standards. Designer Jon Bannenberg overseas his first major yacht project and to this day, she remains contemporary in styling, a precursor of Lurssen yachts today.
In 1977, Friedrich Lurssen joins the company and today the 4th generation pairing of Friedrich and Peter Lurssen are at the helm of Lurssen yachts who continue to consistently produce some of the world’s most extraordinary vessels.
