Kusch Yachts

For more than 30 years, Kusch Yachts have been designing and constructing superyachts that are “tailor-made in Germany.”


Founded in 1981 by Claus Kusch, superyacht builder Kusch Yachts delivered its first yacht, Lady Georgina, in 1982. Kusch found a worthy partner in Peters Werft, located in Wewelsfleth, Germany; a shipyard with a 140-year-old tradition.

Notable Yachts

Kusch Yachts is responsible for one of the world’s largest superyachts in 133-metre Al Mirqab, which was commissioned for Middle East royalty. Built in 2008 by Peters Werft, 133-metre Al Mirqab was designed by Tim Heywood (exterior) and Andrew Winch Designs (interior).

Kusch designed and constructed the 92-metre Tatoosh, owned by American billionaire Paul Allen. She has five decks, a movie theatre and facilities to transport two helicopters on her top two decks.

Built in 2004, 65-metre White Rose of Drachs (Now White Rose), has an interior design by Donald Starkey. Other notable Kusch superyachts include Le Grand Bleu, Lady Christina, Astarte II, Natita and Jamaica Bay.


Kusch is active in all areas of superyacht construction, including repair and re-fitting. Authors of some of the world’s largest superyachts, the company’s slogan is: “We don’t just build, we create.”
