Founded by Friedrich Lurssen in 1875, company has deep roots in German boating history. An entrepreneur and ambitious businessman, Friedrich founded the company when he was only 24 years old, beginning with a shipyard in Aumund, Germany.

Releasing the worldÔÇÖs longest yacht and then the worldÔÇÖs largest in 2015 and 2016 respectively, Lurssen continues to push the boundaries of yacht building.
