Yacht designer Jörg Beiderbeck passes away

Yacht designer Jörg Beiderbeck passes away

Yacht designer Jörg Beiderbeck, founder of beiderbeck designs, passed away on August 2 at his home in Vegesack, Germany after battling a long illness.

Jörg Beiderbeck, 69, is survived by his long-term partner, son and daughter. He also leaves behind the design house that bears his name, beiderbeck designs, of which he is one of four partners. In 2010, Jörg Beiderbeck relinquished the leadership of the design studio located in Bremen, Germany.

"It’s not only beiderbeck designs that is grieving. We will all miss his advice and his expertise. We will honour Jörg Beiderbeck's memory and continue along the same road, so that his aspirations in design and ideas will follow on behind him", the three remaining partners, Immo Lüdeling, Tim Ulrich and Marcus Lowinski have said in a statement following Jörg’s death.

Jörg Beiderbeck was born on October 6, 1946 in Wolfenbüttel, and he went on to study in Kiel, Germany. In 1986, he started a 10-year tenure working as the chief designer for Lürssen shipyard Bremen. Iconic yachts from this era include the 40 metre Be Mine, which marked Lürssen’s entry onto the superyacht scene, and 20 years later beiderbeck designs was called upon to refit this yacht.

He was involved in other noteworthy yachts including project management on the interior of 110 metre Lürssen Radiant and the interior design of 75 metre Phocea.

Whilst working as a lecturer at Bremen’s Technical College in the mid-90s, he met Immo Lüdeling and Tim Ulrich, who later succeeded him in taking over beiderbeck designs.

Jörg's legacy will live on in beiderbeck designs, which today is involved with a number of projects, including the newly launched visionary sailing yacht Bliss II and the Swan 105 RS Ti Coyo.
