Since its original launch in 1875, the family-run German shipyard, Lurssen, has proven to be a leader in quality and performance luxury yachts.
Headquartered in Bremen-Vegesack – with five building yards throughout northern Germany – Lurssen has gained a reputation for not only building the world’s first motoryacht in 1886, but for continuing to create more than 3,000 of the finest luxury yachts in history, still today.
With a team of more than 1,000 craftsmen and 200 engineers, Lurssen credits its success to its unique experience and expertise. It is currently divided into three areas of expert operation: naval vessel and special shipbuilding; the construction of luxury superyachts measuring 50-200 meters in length; and “Lurssen Logistic,” a division that specializes in repair and maintenance, yacht management, spare part documentation and crew training.
Working with cutting-edge technology and leading designers from across the globe, Lurssen has become known, worldwide, for its high-class, tailor-made super yachts – including Carinthia VII, Pelorus and Octopus, three of the most recognized vessels in yachting world history. And on top of this stellar reputation, Lürssen has also become known as a reliable partner for refit and repair, and services existing vessels, in remote and popular locations across the globe, with its superior maintenance capabilities.
