Lürssen Yachts began on June 27, 1875 in Aumund, Germany, when Friedrich Lürssen, who was only 24 years old at the time, set up a workshop for boat building. Its first construction showed everyone that its trademark was of high quality and originality. His shipyard grew and prospered, and in 1886 he built the world’s first motorboat for the genius of engine-making, Gottlieb Daimler; and the Daimler engine took off in the boating world, as did Lürssen’s boat designs. In 1911, the Lürssen-Daimler speedboat won the Championship of the Sea and then the Grand Prix of Nations and the Prix de la Cote d´Azur that same year.
After the death of Friedrich Lürssen in 1916 at age 65, the company began developing and building remote-controlled ships for the German navy. In 1925, Lürssen launched its 10,000th vessel, in addition to celebrating its 50th anniversary. In 1927, the company built the fastest passenger yacht in the world that could make 34 knots and the longest and heaviest motor yacht in the world. The company continued to grow and prosper with only a few years during the war when business slowed down, and meanwhile, the descendants of Friedrich Lürssen were in power. And, today, the company has built some of the most innovative and massive yachts in the world.
