Lurssen Yachts was originally founded by Friedrich Lurssen in 1875. Several generations later, Lurrsen is managed by two cousins, Friedrich and Peter Lurssen, who have successfully crossed-platformed Lurssen's military shipbuilding expertise into one of the premiere luxury yacht manufacturers in the world. A family owned business for many generations, they are involved in every step of the construction with a goal of customer satisfaction through the entire manufacturing process.
Lurssen has built some of the most magnificent yachts in history including, the 319' Carinthia VII, the 315' Limitless, the 377' Pelorus, and the 414' Octopus. Lurssen has won many awards, with the most recent being the 2004 International Superyacht Design Award for "Pelorus", in the best power 43m plus category.
