German shipyard Lürssen Americas LLC has announced the appointment of Timothy Hamilton as director and the opening of a sales and marketing office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The yard is placing a renewed focus on the Americas market and on building yachts of between 50 and 75 metres (164 and 247 feet), with Hamilton responsible for spearheading its efforts.
Before joining Lürssen, Hamilton served as the director of Feadship America and undertook an entrepreneurial endeavour with a real estate start-up focused on property management. He began collaborating with Lürssen at the end of 2017 and moved with his family to Germany for the majority of 2018, working at the yard head office and building relationships with the team while studying the DNA of Lürssen yachts.
“I am humbled at the opportunity to re-enter the yachting industry and represent such a legendary shipyard as Lürssen. The prestige and history of this great shipyard is second to none: having built the world’s first motorboat 125 years ago and such spectacular yachts as Limitless over 20 years ago, and the incredible and forward leaning projects of today. In addition, I consider it a privilege to work for the Lürssen family who have proven to care as much for their employees as their customers,” Hamilton said.
“I’ve spent the past year engaged in the full project cycle at the shipyard and am amazed at the organisation’s commitment to excellence. Now we’ve moved back to the US, opened an office, and are focused on expanding the Lürssen brand in the Americas; I’m proud to be a part of such a team of professionals.”
Michael Breman, Lürssen’s sales director, said, “Timothy will help us to bridge the distance between our shipyard here in Bremen, Germany, and the important US market.
“His experience in yachting together with his passion for the Lürssen brand will help us in our efforts to build the finest yachts for our clients in the US. We are delighted to welcome Timothy to the Lürssen family.”
In January, Hamilton opened a sales and marketing office at the Pier Sixty-Six Hotel & Marina in Fort Lauderdale to represent Lürssen in the Americas. From this office, he and the team will serve Lürssen yachts and customers throughout North and South America.
