Stretching along the banks of the river Weser in north-western Germany, the Abeking & Rasmussen shipyard has evolved over the decades into a state-of-the-art complex, producing ships, yachts and specialist vessels such as mine-sweepers, patrol boats, and research and supply ships for the offshore industry.
But of all the vessels constructed by Abeking & Rasmussen, none are so charged with emotion as their yachts. A yacht is always a very personal statement: the ultimate symbol of attainment, and often the fulfilment of a lifelong dream. Abeking & Rasmussen takes each customer’s dream and turns it into functional and reliable reality without any aesthetic compromise.
There is a huge range of superyachts to choose from: a classical wooden sailing yacht, a fast and modern aluminium sloop or the solid steelwork of a motor yacht. Whichever choice the customer makes – and no matter whether the development is entirely in-house or in co-operation with a leading international designer – Abeking & Rasmussen will embrace the project to ensure that the customer gets exactly what they want. Every new build is a bespoke creation – a unique reflection of its owner’s individual style and outlook on life.
Abeking & Rasmussen develops and builds ships for navies, coastguards, the public sector, ship operators and private customers. Its unique SWATH@A&R technology endows its vessels with exceptional sea-keeping capabilities. Offering outstanding safety and reliability, they also provide a stable working platform, even in heavy seas, which means they can be used in extreme situations that might otherwise be prohibitive.
As an innovative, future-focused shipyard in the high-tech country of Germany, Abeking & Rasmussen is constantly striving to stretch the boundaries of what is possible in yachtbuilding – and safety and quality are at the heart of its corporate philosophy.
The company’s high-tech facility in Lemwerder incorporates an inner harbour, a syncrolift, modern office buildings and five shipbuilding halls that can accommodate yachts of up to 95 metres in length. It also encompasses environmentally-friendly workshops with high-performance production facilities for conventional steel, aluminium and non-magnetisable steel. Conveniently situated for both local and international customers, Abeking & Rasmussen is a short distance from Bremen Airport, and is easily reached by train or the A1 motorway.
