Many people know Lürssen Yachts as the builder of some of the most spectacular yachts in the world, but in recent years Lürssen Yachts has also proved to be a very solid refit partner. Two recent yachts that have used the Lürssen facilities for modifications are Queen K and Al Salamah.
Queen K, which was completed by Lürssen Yachts in 2004 as Queen M, was relaunched a few days ago from the Lürssen Bremen shipyard. She now features a beautiful dark grey hull. Parts of her superstructure and mast were also painted grey. The owner had also opted for an extra deck which was added behind the mast above the owner’s suite.
The other yacht at the shipyard was the 139m (457ft) Al Salamah, after a busy season she returned to the shipyard in the Autumn of 2006. Unknown to many, Al Salamah is used extensively by her owner and his guests. Al Salamah's owner takes her out for trips in Arabian waters on a regular basis. Al Salamah was recently dry-docked at MWB in the Bremerhaven and returned only a few days ago in Bremen for her finishing touches.
Both Queen K and Al Salamah were built by Lürssen Yachts, but Lürssen also happily refit yachts built at other shipyards, like the 66m Dilbar which was at the shipyard during the winter. Other big yachts which have used Lürssen Yachts in the past for refits are Phocea, Cedar Sea II, Enigma, Tugatsu, Blue Shadow C and many others.
