The famous Eclipse mega yacht will soon be dethroned by Lürssen’s 590 feet vessel that has been commissioned by an Arab buyer. But the luxury boats have another thing in common, aside from the fact that they will be the largest superyachts in the world: German manufacturers.
Statistics show that in an economically unstable world, wealthy customers still buy luxe yachts, and most of these vessels come from Germany. Italy and the Netherlands have been left behind, with German manufacturers having more work than ever. Customers like famous Roman Abramovich, Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, or the son of Muammar Gaddafi, are only some of those who chose to purchase their mind-blowing luxury yachts from Germany.
