For five generations, the Lürssen family has been cultivating the most refined skills and advanced technologies to create truly outstanding vessels. The company’s connection to shipbuilding is as deep-rooted and individual as only family bonds can be. When founder Friedrich Lürssen said, “Leading in quality and performance, that should be my company’s reputation,” he was expressing the values Lürssen continues to uphold to this day. This commitment is one reason why Lürssen is the market leader and so valued by luxury yacht clients: more than 20 of the world’s 100 largest yachts were built by Lürssen, with many more under construction.
Each project begins with the client’s thoughts, wishes and dreams. And ends with their realisation: a custom-built yacht like no other. You determine the level and depth of consulting and input. You select from proposals developed according to your ideas by internationally leading designers.
With its intense focus on excellence in custom-built yachts, Lürssen could be called single-minded. Yet the logical consequence is diversity: to fulfil the widely varying individual wishes and needs of each client, Lürssen operates five separate shipyards, each specialising in a specific size of yacht – from around 60 metres to 220 metres. The advantage of this multifaceted capacity for the client is exceptionally individualised service: whether you wish to realise the yacht of your dreams or are looking for a partner to meet your refit or maintenance needs, Lürssen will allocate your project to the ideal shipyard.
Each facility is equipped with the most advanced shipbuilding technology available, and staffed with highly qualified naval architects and specialised engineers as well as technicians and skilled workers. The Lürssen staff is characterised not only by unsurpassed expertise and experience, but also by exceptional loyalty and commitment. In fact, many staff members belong to families that have been employed by the company for generations.
The head office is situated in the northern German city of Bremen, with all five shipyards also located in the north. Together, these facilities offer 1,125,000 sq m of space for newbuilds, refits, repair and maintenance. That means owners can always count on Lürssen’s capacity to care for their beloved vessels – for a lifetime of yachting pleasure, always knowing that their yachts can be passed down to generations to come.
