Lurssen is a leading Super Yacht Builder. They have built some of the world’s biggest and most expensive superyachts. Including Octopus, Carinthia VII, Dilbar, Topaz and Katara. Lurssen is based in Germany.

Lurssen Yachts

Lurssen is considered to be the most exclusive superyacht builder in the world. Lurssen has built the world’s largest yachts (Dilbar and Azzam). And many other yachts in the top 10 of largest yachts in the world.


Lurssen was founded in 1875 by Friedrich Lurssen. The company started building motor boats. In 1911 the Lürssen-Daimler speedboat with its 102 hp engine was the sensation of the racing season.

Later the company diversified in to defense and coast guard vessels. Nowadays the fifth generation is active in the company.

In 2016 Lurssen acquired the Blohm+Voss yard. Lurssen now operates operate seven separate locations in North Germany. Each specializing in a specific size of yacht – from around 60 meters to well over 200 meters in length. The company has more than 2,800 employees and is managed by Peter Lurssen.

Peter Lurssen

Peter Lurssen is the CEO of the Lurssen group. Peter Lurssen has a net worth of several hundred million dollar. He is rumored to own a large yacht himself: the 72 meter Coral Ocean, built in 1994 as Coral Island.

Iconic Yachts

Lurssen has built most of the world’s largest yachts including Azzam (the world’s longest yacht) and Dilbar (the world’s biggest yacht in gross tonnage). Other yacht are  Al Salamah (Prince for Prince Sultan of Saudi Arabia), Al Said (for Sultan Qaboos of Oman) and Katara for the Emir of Qatar.

Other iconic superyachts are Helmut Horten’s Carinthia VII and Paul Allen’s Octopus. They built Larry Ellison’s Rising Sun and the famous Pelorus.

Current Order Portfolio

Lurssen currently has seven projects under construction. Aas far as we are aware of that is, as many Lurssen projects remain highly confidential. Up to the moment of launch of the yacht)

Project Fiji - 95 meter (312 ft) - delivery in 2019 - the new Madsummer

Project Redwood/Opus - 142m (456ft) delivery 2020 - built for Alexei Mordashov

Project Gaja - 125 meter (404 ft) - 2023 - The new Kismet

Project Sassi - 146 meter (479 ft) - (the new Coral Island, destroyed in a fire).

Project Icecap - 107 meter (351 ft) - delivery 2021 (the new Northern Star)

Project Kali - 110 meter (360 ft) - delivery 2021

Project Testarossa - 116 meter (380 ft) delivery 2022 - new yacht for Michael Lee Chin.

It seems Lurssen is building a 160 meter yacht as a replacement for Topaz/ A+.

Recently Delivered yachts

Project Thunder - 135 meter (443 ft) - delivered in 2018 and named Crescent.

Project Tis - 111 meter (364 ft) - delivered in 2019 - owner Alexei Fedorychev

Flying Fox - 136 meter (446 ft) - IMO 9829394 - Project Shu

Project Lightnign, now Scheherazade

Project Sassi

Project Sassi was severely damaged in a fire in September 2018. Project Sassi was still in her drydock when a fire started due to construction works. It took fire crew half a day to get the fire under control.  

We received several messages claiming that Project Sassi was the new Topaz, for Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Sheikh Mansour is the deputy prime minister of the United Arab Emirates. And  he is minister of presidential affairs.

But later we were told that Sassi was actually a replacement for Coral Island.


We think Project Testarossa is the replacement of the Quatroelle, built for Jamaican/ Canadian billionaire Michael Lee Chin. One of the projects above is the new Coral Island, built for Sheikh Abdul Mohsen al Sheikh. Sheikh Abdul Mohsen is the original owner of the yacht Pelorus. Before he sold the project under construction to Roman Abramovich.

Project Fiji is the new Madsummer, built for Jeffrey Soffer.

Project Gaja is the new Kismet. And Project Redwood / Opus is the new Lady M for Alexei Mordashov.

Lurssen Logistics

Lurssen Logistics supports ship owners with maintenance, documentation of spare parts, management of yachts and crew training and support.

The company creates system and equipment manuals, technical drawings, operating plans, instructions, test reports, maintenance information and certificates

Lurssen Naval

Lurssen Naval builds fast patrol boats, offshore patrol vessels, corvettes, frigates, minehunters and fleet support vessels.  Lürssen is involved in the development and construction of the new frigate type F 125 for the German navy. Clients include the government of Germany, Australia, Turkey and Bahrain.


Lurssen has won many yacht building awards, such as the Motor Yacht of the Year 2017 award for Dilbar. The World's Best Superyacht Design for power yachts over 43 meter Pelorus. And the World Superyacht Award for Kismet in 2015.
