Founded in 1907 by George Abeking and Henry Rasmussen, it is one of the longest established yacht builders. A&R still retains a family approach to doing business which for many owners offers extra comfort for their superyacht build experience. The shipbuilder offers the freedom to operate in an innovative, rapidly responsive and flexible manner. Each yacht that emerges from the yard is built to mirror the style and philosophy of its owner and to be both functional and reliable without compromising on aesthetics. This unrivalled level of personalisation truly allows for an owner’s yachting dreams to be realised.

A&R is a shipyard with many dimensions. Still at its core a family business, the yard is constantly investing in the latest progressive technologies to enhance performance and sustainability. A&R yachts are also emblematic of the most coveted design trends of the contemporary age. From the distinctive and award-winning Excellence to the classic beauty of Soaring, A&R prides itself on decades of proficiency in building the perfect yacht for her owner.

A&R also offers expert craftsmanship and technical service throughout yacht refitting.

With a production facility based in Lemwerder, the yard currently boasts environmentally-friendly workshops, five production halls, office buildings, an inner harbour and a syncrolift.
