Established in 1956 and based in Viareggio, Lusben provides solutions which cover the consultancy needs, maintenance and repair of motoryachts and megayachts ranging from 20 – 65 m (66 – 213 ft) in length.
The outstanding facilities and specialised workers at Lusben undoubtedly contribute to the reason why Lusben is internationally recognised as a centre of yacht building excellence. One particular feature of the yard is a state-of-the-art paint shed with climate control for yachts up to 60m (197ft) in length. The yard also boasts a 600 tonne travel lift, a 30 tonne crane and 30,000m2 (322,900 sq.ft) of seafront.
Lusben was one of, if not the first company to embark on the refit business, and over the years has grown to become the benchmark of quality and success in this sector. In 2000 Lusben became part of the Azimut-Benetti group – the world’s largest builder of motor yachts over 24m (80ft) in length, and a position which they have held for over eight years. Since 1956, Lusben has refitted more than 1000 yachts, including some of the most famous pleasure craft in sailing history.
Lusben has a long standing relationship with the Awlgrip business through the ongoing support and advice from their Area Sales Manager, Filip Van De Walle. Awlgrip would like to thank Lusben for their loyalty and look forward to continuing to be their preferred paint choice for many years to come.
