Yacht Charter | German Builder Holds Record for World’s Largest Yachts

A quick look at the top ten world’s largest yachts puts to bed any doubt which shipyard can lay claim to the most superyachts on the seas. 
Of the ten largest yachts in service today, Germany’s Lürssen Yachts has built 5 of them, including 3 of the top 5.
With the recent launch of the world’s largest yacht, motor yacht AZZAM, Lürssen also lays claim to the top spot.  Lürssen Yachts launched the 180 meter yacht AZZAM in early 2013, wrestling the top spot away from the Roman Abramovich owned motor yacht ECLIPSE, a 162.50 meter Blohm & Voss GmbH vessel launched in 2010.

Founded by Friedrich Lurssen in 1875, Fr. Lürssen Werft GmbH & Co. remains a family-run yard, now in its fourth generation of private ownership.  With headquarters in Bremen-Vegesack, Lurssen Yachts is renown for building some of the world’s finest luxury yachts between 33 and 200 metres, and can also lay claim to building the world’s first motor yacht in 1886.  Lürssen operates 5 yards in northern Germany and employs more than 1000 craftsmen and 200 engineers.

The company lends its name to some of the charter industry’s largest yachts, including:
Motor yacht TV  (ex motor yacht MAD SUMMER ex GEKKE ZOMMER)
Motor yacht MARTHA ANN
208ft yacht POLAR STAR
2009-built yacht ARKLEY
60 meter yacht SOLEMATES
