Abeking & Rasmussen History

Abeking & Rassmussen Yachts are built in its yacht building center at Lemwerder, Germany. Yacht builders Georg Abeking and Henry Rasmussen founded the Lemwerder yacht-building shipyard in 1907 and have produced over 6,400 sailing yachts, motor yachts and mega-yachts since that time. Abeking & Rasmussen feature environmentally friendly workshops containing high-yield production facilities for yacht and boat construction. Abeking & Rasmussen yachts generally start at a minimum of 98 feet in length. SWATH ship technology is adapted for efficiency, speed and comfort, while the use of varied materials such as wood, aluminum, steel, non-magnetizable steel, or fiberglass is used in construction. Abeking & Rasmussen's technical perfection is shown in the motor yacht; Excellence III, a 185 foot mega-yacht launched at the end of 2001, which won the 2001 Superyacht Award for Best Power Interior.

Since the opening of its first yacht building yard on the Weser River, Abeking & Sasmussen yachts has grown into a large complex housing five halls for ships and yachts up to 72 meters, as well as office buildings on a convenient inner harbor equipped with a synchrolift.

Abeking & Rasmussen shipyard, as a specialist in yacht building, professes a policy that no other ship is so charged with emotion as a yacht - so personal that it stands for an owner’s dream come true. On that basis it is the yacht builder’s task to transform the dream into reality, with a functional and reliable outcome, without aesthetic compromises. Each new yacht is unique, made to mirror the style and philosophy of its owner. Refitting of yachts is also a specialty of Abeking & Rasmussen, offering expert craftsmanship and technical service through total yacht reconstruction.

Hi,

Do you have any other info about it such as size,rig style, hull no etc?

If it were built in '37 and then not shipped till '47 it would have probably been used by the occupying forces for some R & R as many yachts that were left in the area were.

It may have even just been taken by a returning military figure who had the ability to get such a large piece of "baggage" onboard for the trip.

The build nr is 3118 and she was built for Schütte & Bübemann in Bremen. This is from an A&R book and it only says Motorboot, not the size.

The online Database of A&R has a column "LOA". Normally it says in our business "Lenght over all". There is the number 9.
