The German yard Lürssen is practically synonymous with the term superyacht. Since their founding in 1875, Lürssen has grown to be one of the top superyacht builders in the world. With its headquarters in Bremen-Vegesack, and five more shipyards in Northern Germany, Lurssen’s global network of yacht builders and designers enables them to create and deliver the perfect luxury yacht for its customers. Their custom designs and quality workmanship make them a highly sought after yard. Their new build Azzam, measuring nearly 591 feet, tops the list of largest yachts and is a testament to the scale that Lürssen can build it. The history, the reputation, and the detailed craftsmanship onboard a Lürssen-built yacht make them coveted yachts on the charter and sales market.

The Lürssen yard is constantly improving and innovating to set new standards in the yachting industry. By achieving word-class design and cutting edge technology, each Lürssen yacht is crafted to exude the ultimate in luxury style and performance. In 1994, Lürssen was one of the only yacht builders able to achieve ISO 9001 certification as a result of a variety of efficient manufacturing technologies to take care of yacht creation. This was no easy task as the Lürssen shipyard spans more than 350,000 square meters, 150,000 square meters of that being covered and 70,000 square meters of air-conditioned facilities.

The Lürssen yachts fleet includes several iconic models and names. It is behind the creation of many popular yachts such as the 2003’s Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s Octopus which measures 127-meters, David Geffen’s Rising Sun which measures 138-meters and was first delivered to Larry Ellison, the CEO of Oracle, in 2004. Other iconic yachts include the 377’ Pelorus, 315’ Limitless, 230′ Martha Ann, Kismet, the largest private yacht in the world named Azzam (which measures close to 591 feet) launched in 2013, and Dilbar, launched in 2016. Because Lürssen yachts provide their customers with unmatched, world-class quality, no expense is spared in their design and construction.

The shipyard’s devotion to continue creating the world’s best yachts has resulted in many superyacht awards around the world. All Lürssen yachts under construction are sure to provide the world with unmatched design and technology.
