Lürssen Yachts

Lurssen is a leading SuperYacht Builder. Based in Germany, they have built some of the world’s biggest and most expensive superyachts, including Octopus, Carinthia VII, Dilbar, Topaz and Katara.

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 and 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), Dilbar (the world’s biggest yacht in gross tonnage),  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, Paul Allen’s Octopus, Larry Ellison’s Rising Sun and the famous Pelorus.

Current Order Portfolio

Lurssen currently has seven projects under construction (as 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 Thunder - 135 meter (443 ft) - delivery in 2018

Project Tis - 111 meter (364 ft) - delivery in 2018

Project Shu - 146 meter (479 ft) - delivery in 2018

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

Project Redwood - 139 meter (456 ft) delivery 2019

Unknown project name - 123 meter (404 ft) - undisclosed delivery date

Project Lightning - 130 meter (427 ft) - delivery 2019

We think project Redwood is the replacement of the Quatroelle, built for Jamaican 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 Lurssen, before he sold the project under construction to Roman Abramovich.

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.
