Lürssen is responsible for building some of the world’s finest luxury yachts between 50 and 180 metres, and can claim to have produced the world’s first motor yacht in 1886.


With headquarters in Bremen and a workforce of 1800, Lürssen maintains three state-of-the-art production facilities in northern Germany. Lürssen also offers unique facilities and unrivalled potential for carrying out multiple refits simultaneously - whether a yacht is a Lürssen yacht or one built by another shipyard.

Specialised expertise and experience are the corner stones of Lürssen’s success which has seen the company launch more than 13,000 vessels since 1875.


Priding itself on being on the cutting-edge of technology, Lürssen also associates itself with the fields of Research and Innovation, Production Technologies, System Integration, and Yacht Management.


The latest generation of Lürssen superyachts boasts improved fuel efficiency and lower emissions as well as a reduction in noise levels.

In 2025 Lürssen will deliver their first yacht with fuel cell technology for a pioneering client. The fuel cell is flanking the conventional generators and is a big step to an emission free Lürssen yacht. The innovative company does not however lose sight of its heritage and takes care of the minute details with many elements of their vessels being completed by hand and employing the skills of unique craftsmen to deliver a yacht that every owner dreams of.

The company lends its name to some of the yachting world’s most recognisable vessels including the motor yachts Carinthia VII, Pelorus and Octopus. Lürssen is also perhaps most renowned for bringing the world the largest superyacht to date, the 180.6m Azzam and also the biggest yacht by gross tonnage, the 156 m Dilbar.
