are megayachts, from 110 feet to 492 feet, which envelop customer satisfaction through the entire manufacturing process, built at a family-owned business. What Friedrich Lurssen envisioned in 1875, along with Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach, continues today in the production of Lurssen yachts. Lurssen is headquartered in Bremen-Vegesack, Germany and uses a combination of shipyards, as well as worldwide connections, to achieve the final customer goal. Lurssen has the distinction of building the first motor boat in the world, and the first remote-controlled boat. Six key manufacturing technologies govern Lurrsen yacht building, and Lurssen has achieved ISO 9001 certification. A 233-foot Lurssen yacht has been awarded by both the Superyacht Society and Showboats International.
