Lürssen's Young Designer Award shipyard tour

Lürssen recently invited the six finalists of the Young Designers Award to visit their shipyards in Northern Germany. In total the group of finalists consisted of seven young designers. During the tour there they had the opportunity to see three yachts all in a different stage of building, and met with some of the staff responsible for building the yachts.

One of the young designers, Graham Kukla, commented "Lurssen provided a priceless opportunity to this year's finalists. Rarely do young professionals in the design industry have the opportunity to appreciate these magnificent vessels from up close. Exploring various Lurssen facilities helped to provide a comprehensive understanding of the complex engineering, special requirements and build processes behind some of the world's top yachts."

Every one of the Young Designers was enthusiastic not only in presenting his own design but also to see the new ideas presented by the other designers, in another impressive, exciting and enriching experience for everyone involved.

Denis Dreier, another of Lürssen’s finalists, commented, “we spent a superb afternoon with people who had the same passion like us: Yachts! I'd like to say a very big thank you to all the people who were involved - it was an awesome experience!
