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."

Privacy on-board: how to protect your superyacht from paparazzi
Security matters and finding ways to protect their assets, crew, and guests from such dangers as pirates or paparazzi, have been in focus of the yacht owners for years. Security systems deployed onboard normally depend on the owner’s profile, the assets in question and the locations a system would be operating. Increasingly, the owners order security systems that can automatically monitor, detect, track, classify and alert operators to approaching objects in the proximity of a yacht. There are some technical devices, normally deployed for better protection.When it comes to paparazzi, one of the most helpful device would be anti-drone protection. Such equipment would detect and identify commercial drones within a 20+km range, providing GPS positioning of both drone & pilot together with the drone’s speed and heading. When a real drone has been detected, the system enables creation of a 500 metre plus electronic ‘exclusion zone’ around the yacht. Once the drone approaches this zone, its control/video signals would be blocked, forcing it to land or return to operator. One of the most popular examples of anti paparazzi protection on a superyacht, is Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich chosing to install a special shield system against paparazzi on his 162.5-metre Blohm+Voss superyacht Eclipse, built in 2010.According to The Times, the device is capable of fixing the activity of the photosensitive elements on digital cameras, and disables them with a direct laser beam. The system works under both automatic and manual modes.The fourth in his private fleet, Eclipse was famously built for Russian billionaire, Roman Abramovich and the owner of Chelsea football club, as the largest yacht in the world (at that moment), a title that she held until the delivery of the 180-metre Azzam in 2013.M/Y EclipseEclipse also comes fitted with an underwater mini-boat and two helipads in case of emergencies. The initial price of the yacht was rumoured to amount to € 350 million, but additional equipment might have increased her value to € 800 million.According to Forbes interview with Johannes Pinl of superyacht privacy and protection company MARSS, nowadays onboard CCTV, access control (door locking systems) and deck mounted pressure sensors likely to ‘form the basis of most standard superyacht security packages.’These will be connected over an onboard network and managed from the bridge or a central control security room. Long-range daylight and thermal imaging cameras can have a dual function for both navigation and security use cases. Such cameras can be equivalent to military specification and are mounted on the mast to provide a long distance visual capability around a vessel.He also stresses out that the key important thing is ensuring awareness among the crew to increase reaction time and make better decisions based on a clear assessment of a situation.Meanwhile, one of the recent security devices installed by MARSS on a 100-metre plus superyacht, was NiDAR 360° degree surveillance system integrating multiple sensors to provide automated monitoring, detection, tracking and classification of objects in the vicinity of a vessel.Operating autonomously at 24/7, NiDAR tracks both known and unknown surface and air objects. Smart software algorithms automatically analyse and rank threats, triggering alerts to notify crew and security personnel as required.
