To love yachts is to love the sea. To love the sea is to respect the environment. The Lürssen family and company are deeply aware of the need to protect not only the world’s oceans and coastlines, but the entire global ecology and climate. In cooperation with our clients, we consistently apply our innovative resources to reduce the impact of our yachts. For example, recent vessels feature enhanced fuel efficiency and decreased soot, CO2 and noise emissions.In addition, Lürssen is the first yacht-builder to make extensive use of waste heat from the generators and engines of a megayacht (>150m) to operate the vessel’s onboard desalination system for drinking water. And we continue to invest substantially in research of energy technologies that promise a major step forward in sustainability, such as fuel cells and solar energy.
