Those who stopped by the Lürssen stand during the Monaco Yacht Show this year may have seen four unique paintings being created by a number of industry insiders. These four paintings, known as ‘Lürssen Art Collective’, are set to go to a charity auction in support of our oceans.

Photo: LürssenIn support of the charity auction, Lürssen has contributed an opening bid of €5.000 for each painting. However, unlike other auctions, the bidder only has to pay the incremental difference between the previous bid and their new bid. The charity auction is set to run from November 6 to November 20 at auction at auction.lurssen.com, with the minimum bid increase starting at €25.
