The Lemwerder yard builds yachts 80 to 110 meters in length and has been part of the Lürssen process since 1935. This location also houses the main warehouse and refit and repair department.
Aumund constructs yachts 100 meters in length and larger. This yard joined the Lürssen group in 1997 and is best for the largest yachts.
Lürssen has used the Rendsburg location since 1987 to build 60- to 90-meter yachts, plus maintain navy ships and yacht refit.
Lürssen acquired the Wilhelmshaven site in 2006. Maintenance, repair, and refit on vessels up to 150 meters takes place here.
Naval architects and designers such as Espen Øino, Mark Berryman, Glade Johnson, Reymond Langton, Adam Lay, Alberto Pinto, Andrew Winch, and Francois Zuretti work with Lürssen and its clients to create highly personalized, quality, custom yachts. A few notable launches from Lürssen include Arkley, Podium, Oasis, and Polar Star.
