History of the company
In 1875, the 24-year-old Friedrich Lürssen founded a boat workshop in Omund, near Bremen. His rowing boats began to win regattas and quickly gained popularity throughout Germany. In 1886 Lürssen built the world's first motorboat - it was a 6-meter Rems for Gottlieb Daimler, who commissioned it to test the new engine. In 1905, the Donnerwetter racing boat, designed by Otto Lürssen, had a speed of almost 35 knots and had a 40 hp engine. In 1911, Lürssen-Daimler won the unofficial world championship and several races in the Mediterranean. In 1927 Lürssen built the world's longest motor yacht to date, the 36-metre Aar IV. After the war, the third generation of the Lürssen Fritz and Gerd families started almost from scratch. Their zeal was successful and in 1962 the shipyard entered a new era with the construction of the 55-meter Pegasus II. In the 1980s, the fourth generation of the family, Friedrich and Peter Lürssen, joined the shipyard.
In 1985, Lürssen bought the Kröger shipyard with its docks at Kiel Canal near Rendsburg. In 2004, she bought the Neue Jadewerft shipyard in Wilhelmshaven. In 2012 the Hamburg Norderwerft joined the Lürssen Group, in 2013 Peene Werft in Wolgast and in 2016 Blohm+Voss. Today Lürssen is one of the most powerful shipyards on the market, with all the shareholders being family members.
Even the devastating fire in 2018 at one of the company's docks, which destroyed Project Sassi's 140-metre yacht, which was under construction there, had no serious impact on the shipyard.
Over the years the company has built over 13 thousand boats and ships. The headquarters of the Lürssen Group is located in Bremen, with production facilities at 8 sites near Bremen, Rendsburg and Hamburg. The shipyards are equipped with dry and floating docks up to 320 m long. All production facilities have direct access to the sea. The company employs over 2700 highly qualified staff. In addition to new construction, Lürssen also refits ships.
Lürssen specializes in the design and construction of luxury superyachts 50-200 m long. The company cooperates with the world's leading naval architects. The shipyard also builds warships and special purpose vessels.
In the list of the largest megayachts Lürssen projects take leading positions. Among the most famous projects of Lurssen are such yachts as Octopus, Rising Sun, Al Salamah, Topaz, Dilbar and Azzam. The company provides lifetime technical support for its yachts.
