Lürssen – Yachts built on family bonds since 1875. More beautiful, faster, better, first: these are the qualities that have been cultivated by the Fr. Lürssen Werft Boatbuilding company for over 144 years and four generations, raising it to the pinnacle of shipbuilding. Company founder Friedrich Lürssen’s ambition - formulated in 1875 - “Leading in quality and performance, that should be my company’s reputation” can be considered as fulfilled since a long time. From the beginning, quality, performance and innovation made Lürssen what it is today: an internationally renowned complete shipbuilder with sales, design, manufacturing and development, service and logistics The self imposed goal of being first and best in all classes was achieved early and then over and over again: in 1886, the founder Friedrich Lürssen constructed the world’s first motor boat, the “Rems”, together with the legendary engineers Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach.
