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."

Dune, hybrid 60-meter supertender in gold
Spanish designer Eugeni Quitllet has revealed a 60-meter luxury tender that is a hybrid between a sail boat and a motor power boat, taking the best of both in efficiency. $70 million is its estimated production cost, implying a generous use of precious materials. Dune owes its name to the natural flowing shape of the teak deck, hiding the sculptural navigation panels. The gold finish is used throughout the 6 staterooms to match with the signature rose golden touches on the vessel’s silver metallic exterior. The interior design comes complete with luxury Mirage accessories.
New Feadship yard taking shape in the heart of Amsterdam
In the presence of invited guests, the first concrete was poured into the giant drydocks. Due for completion at the end of 2016, the Dutch builder’s fourth yard is under construction in a prime water-side location in Amsterdam. This facility is set to expand Feadship range with the yachts of up to 160 meters in length. “The average length of the superyachts we are building continues to grow,” explains Feadship director and the CEO of Royal Van Lent shipyard, Jan-Bart Verkuyl. “The majority of projects currently underway are above 80 metres and there is a clear trend to go ever larger". A cooperative venture between two shipyards, Royal Van Lent and Koninklijke De Vries Scheepsbouw, Feadship currently operates three facilities: in Aalsmeer, Kaag Island and Makkum that was opened in 2005. Amsterdam yard is supposed to solve the size limitations on the production imposed by the original Aalsmeer and Kaag yards. When completed, it will be run by Royal Van Lent along with Kaag facility that should continue its operations at full capacity. The two premises will share the same management team, with some 450 skilled employees moving between the yards when required. Apart from new superyachts, measuring up to 160 meters, the new yard will specialize in refits of the existing Feadships. This project will eventually see the banks of the IJ waterway adorned with a 35-metre-high hall and ten three-story workshops. The fact that Feadship will be occupying a five-hectare site with an option for a further 3.8 hectares supports the expectations of “a bright future for this glamorous industry in Amsterdam”, indicates Port of Amsterdam CEO, Koen Overtoom, encouraging other Dutch shipbuilders to follow this example. Feadship is among the largest employers within the global superyacht industry, with over 2000 specialists covering every discipline involved in the design, engineering, naval architecture and construction of luxury motor-yachts. This new initiative means further employment of around 150 specialized craftsmen, all of whom will benefit from the training programs in place, which are designed to pass down skills from generation to generation. “This showcases our determination to preserve both traditional crafts and the very latest technological skill sets. Together with the other leading yachtbuilders in the Netherlands, Feadship forms a vital part of the Dutch superyacht cluster, which includes a wide range of leading supply companies and research institutes. The role that Feadship and the Dutch superyacht industry play in supporting innovation within the wider commercial shipping industry cannot be overestimated either. With this new facility we once again confirm our commitment to the future of the Dutch economy,” director Verkuyl concludes.
Heesen 56-meter Project Neptune in details and photos
Heesen has released the details of the fully-custom project YN 18556, now that the steel hull and superstructure were joined together at the shipyard’s facility in Oss. The yacht that is rapidly taking shape after the laying the keel in January, was christened Neptune. British studio H2 worked on the Heesen pre-engineered FDHF platform to create a contemporary profile that retains the Dutch yard’s family look. The subtle paint scheme has a silver nuance on the transom, wing station and mast. On the functional side, the exterior design includes tenders conveniently stored on the forward deck under hatch covers on the foredeck. The lower beach club houses water toys. A 3.5-meter long fixed platform provides easy access to the water. Warm teak, blue backlit panels and bamboo finishing of the outdoor lounge areas blend with the ocean beyond. The owner appointed Reymond Langton to create a bright and elegant interior, making the most of the boat’s 770 GT. His 85-square-meter apartment is set forward on the main deck, comprising a private gym with steam room, office, full-beam bedroom and bathroom. The interior architecture throughout the main deck and upper deck saloons is in sycamore combined with understated geometric motifs. The delicate fabrics and soft furnishings interplay with artworks in glass, gypsum, resin and bronze. Accommodation for eight guests is split across four suites on the lower deck, all with king-size beds and private bathrooms. The fifth cabin is located on the bridge deck. Both owners and guests will be discreetly serviced by the 13 crew thanks to separate crew corridors and stairs. Project Neptune complies with Lloyds 100A1 SSC Yacht LMC, Large Commercial Yacht LY3 and IMO Tier III exhaust emission regulations. Powered by twin MTU 8V 4000 M63 engines, the boat will reach a maximum speed of 15.5 knots with a cruising range at 13 knots of 4.300 nautical miles.Neptune is due for delivery in 2019.
5 reasons to invest in Fast Support Vessel 6711
Delivered in 2014 by Damen, parent company of Amels, and Monaco-based Imperial Yachts acting as owner's representative and build-supervisor throughout the process, Fast Support Vessel 6711 is part of the Dutch shipyard's Sea Axe series, dedicated to building support vessels for superyachts. Now looking for a new owner through Imperial, here are some of the main reasons why she's worth investing in.Any superyacht, no matter how large it is, ultimately faces constraints as to what it can carry onboard due to a finite amount of space. To adapt to this, compromises are often made with regards to the tenders used and the toys found onboard. Having the 6711 as a Fast Support Vessel however, lets its owner no longer compromise and get the best possible tenders and toys thanks to the 6711's 275 square meters of open deck space.Not only can the 6711 expand the mothership's arsenal of tenders, it can also welcome a set of toys that the vast majority of superyachts could never accommodate. One example of such a toy is, for example, a 3-person Triton submarine that the 67-meter support vessel is able to gracefully carry and quickly launch when needed.Helicopter operations are often an afterthought for superyachts, this is however not the case with this Sea Axe. Amongst the 6711's key features is commercial-grade helipad (D-value: 14m and 5,000kg) located aft of its upper deck, which can accommodate the largest helicopters on the market. A refueling station is also built into the yacht with a capacity to carry up to 5,000l of Jet A-1 fuel.Sea Axe support vessels are by nature impressive, the 6711 takes this to another level. One of the key, custom features on this 67-meter yacht is her dedicated dive center, with a built-in decompression chamber, an amenity that was built on purpose for the 6711, making it a unique support vessel on the market.From a technical standpoint, the 6711 is powered by 4 incredibly powerful MTU 16V 4000 engines, which give the yacht a maximum speed of 19 knots and allow her to cruise for up to 8,720 nautical miles at 15 knots, consuming just 660 liters of fuel per hour. This makes her an ideal option to send ahead of the mothership and explore bays and secluded areas ahead of the mothership's arrival.Project managed and commissioned by Imperial Yachts, the 67.15-meter support yacht is now looking for a new owner with her asking price available upon request.Sponsored by Imperial YachtsC.

Top 5 sunsets of the week
#1. Dilbar Known throughout its highly secretive build as Project Omar, the 156-meter yacht was launched at Lurssen facility in 2015. Upon her delivery to the Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov the following year, the boat was christened Dilbar after her owner’s mother. With her gross tonnage of 15.917 tons, she has officially become the world's largest yacht by volume. The mega-yacht boasts exterior design by Espen Oeino and interior styling by Andrew Winch. Dilbar features a combined 3.800 square meters of living space, being able to host up to 40 guests and a crew of 80.Photo courtesy of Julien Hubert. #2. Mayan Queen IV Owned by Mexican mining magnate, Alberto Bailleres, the 93-meter Mayan Queen IV was delivered by Blohm + Voss in 2008. The superyacht boasts a distinctive two-toned hull structure designed by Tim Heywood, though very little is known about her interior, except that it was designed by Terence Disdale. She has a touch-and-go helipad on the foredeck and two small craft garages, one forward and one on the aft, the latter being convertible into a beach club when the tender is launched. Bought at an estimated price between $140 and $150 million, the yacht costs approximately $15 million a year to operate, according to yachting publications, which apparently isn't a problem for her owner, who regularly cruises around the world. #3. Blues Built in GRP by South African yard Southern Wind. The saiboat was delivered in 2010, with Nauta Design responsible for the general concept, interior design and exterior styling. Her wardrobe of carbon fiber sails is from Quantum Sails in South Africa, while, under power, a 305hp diesel engine gives her a cruising speed of 10 knots. As for accommodation, guest quarters comprise a master suite, VIP suite and two twin cabins, all with en-suite shower facilities. This year Blues was put up for sale, asking €5,400,000. #4. Radiant Built by Lurssen in 2009 to Tim Heywood exterior design, Radiant has a length of 110 meters, a beam of 16.2 meters and a 4.6-meter draft. Commissioned by Boris Berezovsky, Russian billionaire, who died in London in 2013 after having lost a huge lawsuit against his former partner Roman Abramovich, this yacht was supposed to rival Abramovich's Pelorus. The mega-yacht was sold for € 240 million to Abdulla al Futtaim, owner of the Dubai-based conglomerate active in retail, automotive, technology and real estate. Edmiston claimed a sales commission on the purchase, which Berezovsky denied to pay. In 2011 a commission of € 6.0 million was finally rewarded to the brokerage firm by London court decision. #5. S/Y A The 142.8-meter S/Y A by Nobiskrug is the largest sail-assisted motor yacht in the world. She was built in 2017 for Andrey Melnichenko to the design by Philippe Starck, who was also responsible for the Russian billionaire's M/Y A exterior. With masts taller than Big Ben at nearly 100 meters in height, S/Y A reaches a top speed of 20 knots without using her sails. She boasts a digital control system that has a touch-sensitive sheet of black glass, allowing the crew to raise and lower sails and the anchor with a simple swipe. Among the yacht's key features is also an underwater observation pod and a large swimming pool with a retractable roof located towards the bow of the boat. Photo by David Parody.
