About Lurssen

Lurssen
Germany
+49 4216604166
Lurssen is one of the world's leading shipyards. Operated by the Lurssen family for four generations, the company originated over 140 years ago. The yacht manufacturer is based in Germany, with headquarters in Bremen-Vegesack and five further yards in northern Germany. Collaborating with some of the world's most famous yacht designers, Lurssen builds superyachts and naval ships of the highest quality for demanding customers all over the world.

Friedrich Lurssen started the company in 1875 at the age of 24. He initially wanted to join his father's boatyard but his father encouraged Friedrich to set up on his own as it would be challenging for one company to feed two families.

Within 11 years he built the very first motor boat, Rems, with Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach in 1886. Named after a tributary of the river Neckar in Germany, the boat was powered by an 1,5 PS gasoline engine.

Otto Lurssen, the son of Friedrich Lurssen, evolved the Lurssen Werft further to an innovative manufacturer of racing boats like the Daimler II (reached a top speed of 35 knots on the Weser), Maybach-Donnerwetter (35 knots) or the Saurer-Lurssen from 1911 that reached a maximum speed of 32 knots. The Saurer-Lurssen won the "Grand Prix de Monte Carlo" off the coast of Monaco.

Friedrich Lurssen (who manages the yard in the 4th generation together with Peter Lurssen) says: "The history of the shipyard is still closely linked to our own family history and that of many of our staff. The family and staff's genuine identification with the shipyard business and an informal company structure with tight employee loyalty have always been supporting pillars of our success. In addition to technical expertise and practical skills, high levels of flexibility and strength of innovation among our workforce have been the decisive drivers of growth in our shipyard business as a specialty supplier of high-technology ship construction since the beginning."

Gert and Fritz-Otto, the third generation of Lurssen family members, became involved in the late 1930s and remained in place after the war years. That period saw the shipyard continue producing powerboats for private clients and the German navy alike. The naval craft included patrol boats, anti-mine vessels, frigates, and corvettes. They remain important contracts for Lurssen.

Many people think of megayachts as thoroughly modern marvels, but the 55m Pegasus II (now Platinum), for example, was delivered in 1962. This side of business has grown tremendously under the guidance of Friedrich and Peter Lurssen, who took over in the late 1980's. Presently 25 of the 100 largest yachts were built by Lurssen. Azzam, the third year running largest yacht of the world, was also constructed by the shipyard. She took over Abramovich's Eclipse in 2013. Lurssen is also responsible for the year's most secretive and largest vessel-the 156m Project Omar, reportedly built for the Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov. As for the other megayachts, their names are well-known: Al Said, Topaz, Al Salamah, Rising Sun, Octopus, Golden Odyssey (formerly known as project Tatiana), Katara...

According to a source close to the story, an 88m project at Lurssen would cost close to 130 million euro depending on interior design. Quatroelle was reportedly sold to a new owner under a year after its delivery at a profit which shows just how popular and desired the Lurssen Yachts have become.

As much as the yachts gain fame for their LOAs, it's important to focus on the people who have made them possible. Lurssen employs more than 1,000 people just at its Bremen facility. Over the years with their help, Lurssen has launched more than 13,000 yachts and ships.

Peter Lurssen, CEO of Lurssen Yachts, said: "As a family company it makes us proud and happy to be able to look back, in a turbulent industry, on 140 years of successful shipbuilding history on the River Weser. At the same time, our company anniversary motivates us as a family business to continue manufacturing unique ships for the global market together with our employees and to successfully live up to our great-grandfather's motto to impress through performance and quality."

Lürssen delivers 95m superyacht Madsummer
Previously known as Project Fiji, the 95-metre Lürssen superyacht Madsummer, has been delivered to her owner, a repeat client with the Lürssen. The vessel was launched earlier this year at Lürssen’s Rendsburg facility. During her construction period of nearly 2,5 years, the project was supervised by the owner’s captain and brokerage company Moran Yacht & Ship.Featuring a 14-metre beam, the exterior profile of Madsummer comes from a British designer Harrison Eidsgaard maintaining sleek and elegant lines within impressive volumes.Photo: Klaus JordanThe vessel's main trademarks are the 12-metre swimming pool and Jacuzzi laid on the aft deck and protected with glass bulwarks.

Other decks are connected through exterior staircases and centreline openings.Spacious beach club and spa zone with a sea terrace on the lower deck also belong on the list of Madsummer’s special features. The bow is equipped with a helipad, while the sun deck aft features hidden crane in the bulwark, aimed to handle an aeroboat.

Country for old fleet: the 1960s martime school vessel converted to a superyacht
Among contemporary yachts dominating superyacht charter market, there are sometimes more rare pieces to be found. The 69.7-metre superyacht Sherakhan built in 1966 as a maritime school vessel by Dutch Scheepswerf A.Vuyk & Zonen, is available for charter from € 425,000 per week in the summer season.Back in 1965, the classic yacht started out as Princess Margaret. Her present owner, Dutch hospitality entrepreneur Jan Verkerk, managed to breath a new life into the boat in 2005, when it was rebuilt at his yard and renamed to Sherakhan.Maintaining the vessel’s beautiful classic 1960s lines and style, Verkerk upgraded the interior with Rijntjes Interior Design and carried out a complete technical overhaul.Certified to accommodate up to 26 guests, with a dedicated crew of 20 including Michelin-starred Chef Toine Smulders, Sherakhan has undergone several more extensive refits, with the most recent one conducted at Icon Yachts in 2017.The most noticeable upgrade of 2017 was the 70-meter hull being repainted to a minimalistic white colour from its original vintage blue hue. Along with cosmetic adjustments to the yacht’s interior areas and A/V upgrades, her main generators were replaced with low emission ones to reduce the impact on the environment. The onboard layout of Sherakhan is trademarked with double-height dining room with galleried atrium, skylight courtesy of the glass-bottomed sundeck Jacuzzi and seating for all 26 guests at a dining table. The interior colour palette is calm and neutral, with creams and tan-coloured wood allowing the natural textures and tones to harmonise. The 13 ensuite cabins are generously proportioned, including a full-beam master suite.Sherakhan’s choice of guest deck areas is sizeable, from the generous wicker seating on the main deck or several loungers on the large foredeck to the stellar sundeck with its 18-person Jacuzzi, wet bar and barbecue, dining tables and multiple sun loungers. The toy storage can fit a pair of 7.3-metre tenders, three Waverunner jetskis, wakeboards, surfboards, a number of inflatable towables and an 8-metre custom-made slide.What is more, Sherakhan comes with a full wellness suite including a beauty salon, massage room, gym and sauna. Sherakhan’s technical characteristics allow her to cruise to the most remote areas of the planet, accommodating up to 24 guests within her 12 staterooms.Currently fully booked during a long-term charter in the Red Sea for the summer 2019 season, Sherakhan can usually be found in the Mediterranean during the summer season and the Caribbean over the winter. However, she is claimed capable of exploring more remote areas and has many circumnavigations.
Walt Disney’s grand-nephew rescues competitors from sinking yacht in Transpac regatta
Roy Disney, the grandnephew Walt Disney, rescued the crew of a sinking yacht during the Transpac regatta. The boat of Roy Disney, Andrews 70 Pyewacket, which also took part in the regatta, picked up nine crew members from the sinking Santa Cruz 70 OEX boat, led by John Sangmeister.The racing committee received SOS-signal from the OEX boat at around 2 am, on July 15, reporting that the yacht’s rederpost was damaged and the vessel began to take on water.<iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FTranspacRace%2Fvideos%2F424508521486179%2F&show_text=0&width=560" width="560" height="315" style="border:none;overflow:hidden" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true" allowFullScreen="true"></iframe>An hour later, the OEX crew was picked up by its rivals on Roy Disney's yacht, with no one of 9 crews getting hurt. After that, Pyewacket with the rescued people on-board and its own crew of 10, including Roy Disney, returned to Los Angeles Marina del Rey, from where the Transpac race started.With the reason of the steering axle’ breakage still unknown, the OEX yacht eventually sank. meanwhile, her owner, John Sangmeister, is an experienced yachtsman that had won the Cup of America in 1986–1987. For Sangmeister this was the eighth Transpac race.Transpac is a 2225-mile offshore race from Los Angeles to Honolulu. This year, the regatta has seen several more collisions, with Maserati trimaran Giovanni Soldini running into a huge underwater object. The crew, however, continued the race after stopping for repair.Except for OEX, 6 more hulls out of recording 90 participants, withdrew from the competition this year. Started on July 10, the regatta will see the award ceremony in Hawaii on July 26th.
Dutch builder Moonen Yachts goes bankrupt
Dutch court has declared the yachtbuilder Moonen Yachts bankrupt, reports International Boat Industry. The decision has been made just two weeks after Moonen had announced they had been about to close a deal with a new investor, in order to boast production.According to IBI, despite the bankruptcy procedure, the builder will continue negotiations with the potential investor. Moreover, the new potential stakeholder of the yard can even benefit from the bankruptcy, as they will be relieved of the responsibility to pay off Moonen’s debts.The name of the potential investor has been kept in secret, although some sources claim it is an Australian company. Earlier, the Mexican steel giant Altos Hornos de Mexico (AHMSA) was the main investor at Moonen. In 2015, Moonen issued a statement on payments suspension due to financial problems of AHMSA. The Mexican concern claimed, it was no longer able to finance the construction of two of the three in-build semi-custom-yachts from the Moonen ‘Caribbean’ series, with construction begun a month earlier. At the time, the reason of AHMSA’s financial problems was a 40% price reduction on steel on the international market, caused by dumping of Chinese and Russian competitors.In 2017, the top management reshuffle took place in Moonen. The new CEO announced, he began the process of restructuring the company. In 2018, the shipyard received the World Superyacht Award for the 36-metre Brigadoon, followed by an order for its sistership that should be completed by 2020.But with only one boat under construction at the asset, the board of directors of Moonen decided, further development of the shipyard was impossible without the support of a new, financially stable investor. To keep stable operation, Moonen needs to build two or three projects ranging in size from 30 to 50 meters simultaneously.
