It appears topping their fatherland rival by building the world’s largest yacht wasn’t good enough for Lürssen Yachts. With that title in hand, the German superyacht builder commenced to gobble up their leading competitor, and take over their entire operation.
Bremen-based Lürssen Yachts has announced the acquisition of Hamburg’s superyacht builder, Blohm+Voss.
According to Peter Luerssen, Managing Partner, “With the acquisition of Blohm+Voss we are taking over a shipyard with a strategically advantageous location and versatile production facilities. We want to use these facilities to complement our existing refit and repair activities and also to offer our customers an ever better service.”
With the 2013 launch of the world’s largest yacht, the 180 meter motor yacht AZZAM, Lürssen wrestled the top spot away from the Roman Abramovich-owned motor yacht ECLIPSE, a 162.50 meter Blohm & Voss GmbH vessel launched in 2010.
Of the 10 largest yachts in service today, Lürssen has built 5 of them, including 3 of the top 5.
In the charter industry, many Lürssen Yacht charter vessels are among, the largest yachts offered for hire, including the 94 meter (308ft) Lürssen yacht Kismet II and the 70 meter (230ft) Lurssen motor yacht Martha Ann.

While European luxury yacht charter customers tend to request superyachts built in Italy, Holland, and France, their counterparts in America have a strong preference for a Trinity yacht charter vessel.
The Trinity yacht charter fleet stands toe-to-toe with the Benetti yacht charter, Lurssen yacht charter, and Feadship yacht charter fleets in terms of luxury amenities and interiors.
Trinity Yachts has earned its place as one of the world’s elite builders of custom superyachts, with an emphasis on European quality, steel and aluminum constructions. Their goal is to build a truly custom yacht that fulfills all of your unique cruising desires.
In a world where most superyachts are constructed on a semi-production basis, this builder is renown for creating the largest yachts available for mega yacht charters, up to 400 feet (123 meters). They work with a number of the world’s most renowned naval architects and interior designers.
Now planning a Caribbean yacht charter or Mediterranean yacht charter holiday on one of these magnificent yachts has never been easier. Currently, there are 17 rent private yacht Trinity-built models available.
