Hermann Schaedla of Abeking & Rasmussen dies

Sadly, we have to report the sudden death of Hermann H. Schaedla aged 76, after more than 50 years of steering the fortunes of Abeking & Rasmussen.

Under his responsible and visionary management, the small shipyard in Lemwerder evolved into one of the major, world famous names in the field of yacht and naval shipbuilding. Hermann Schaedla grew up in California but was soon drawn back to Germany as the country where he could achieve his goal of becoming a shipbuilder.

In 1959, at the age of just 24, he took over the shipyard from his grandfather and company founder Henry Rasmussen. From then on, he repeatedly succeeded in transforming his visions of extraordinary, unique ships into reality. To begin with, it was sailing ships, later motor yachts and vessels for the naval and public sector that created a sensation the world over and laid the foundations for the excellent reputation of Abeking & Rasmussen today.
