FOR THE STARS

Yacht building is an industry where size matters – emotionally and tangibly. Ships are getting technologically more advanced, more comfortable and sophisticated and also ever bigger. A&R is right on trend with its formidable new structures in Lemwerder. As of late five highly modern production hangars, a new dock, a syncrolift as well as diverse workshops for processing wood, steel and aluminium have been erected at the shipyard. A&R is now able to launch yachts of up to 125 m length. An enormous increase in possibilities for the shipyard, but also for all those interested that previously lacked just those few meters to pure bliss.

Tradition is not holding on to the ashes, but passing on the flame
Company

A strong driving force of progress is actually a human weakness: discontent. With Abeking & Rasmussen it is actually in the company genes to be satisfied only once the optimum has been improved. It is a journey of constant exploration and of pushing one’s limits. Envision, design and then construct are all parts of a continuous process in A&R shipbuilding approach constantly in loop until the best has become even better. Through a simplified company structure- everything under a single roof and out of a single source- A&R retains the essential know-how and valuable ideas, not only about particular projects but across whole disciplines, productions series and production processes.

 

Highly focussed potential that makes many A&R success stories a reality. There are numerous examples that have caused an international sensation such as the delivery of the world’s fastest diesel yacht, the development of non-magnetic steel or more recently the SWATH@A&R technology. What absolutely ensures A&R worldwide reputation is the ability to turn creative discontent into customer satisfaction. In all domains of shipbuilding.
