Kleven and Lürssen joins forces – sign contract on the building of 100m Explorer Vessel

Norwegian shipbuilder Kleven has signed a contract with Lürssen, the world’s leading designer and builder of large luxury yachts, on the delivery of an 100m long Explorer Vessel for a non-disclosed customer.

The Explorer Vessel will be built, partly outfitted and technically finalized at Kleven Verft in Norway, before final outfitting at Lürssen’s Blohm+Voss facility in Hamburg, Germany.

‘We are proud to announce this first result of the cooperation between Kleven and Lürssen,” said Ståle Rasmussen, CEO of Kleven. ‘With their more than 140 years of history in the luxury yacht business, Lürssen is unrivalled in its experience and knowledge, and we are proud of the fact that they have chosen Kleven as their long-term partner. The combination of Lürssen’s world-known yacht designers, creating custom-built yachts like no other, and Kleven’s modern and highly automated shipbuilding facility in Norway will provide unrivalled quality to our customers. Kleven will be leaning heavily on their expertise derived from building highly advanced, world class offshore vessels. We hope this is the first of many vessels being built in this partnership,’ Mr Rasmussen said.
