A large yacht under construction caught fire in Lürssen’s production shed at the Bremen-Aumund shipyard in Germany on Friday.

The company issued this statement:

“In the early morning at approximately 02:00 a fire broke out in the floating dock of the Fr. Lürssen Shipyard in Bremen-Aumund and onboard the yacht within it. The emergency procedures commenced immediately, in the course of which the persons still working on board were evacuated and examined with respect to possible smoke intoxication, and the firefighting department and emergency response teams were alarmed.

“Additionally, the whole premises were evacuated. Currently, no casualties are known. At the moment, 110 firefighters and rescuers are onsite, also supported by a team of the Jos. L. Meyer shipyard. Further buildings or other ships were not affected. No statement can be made so far towards the cause of the fire or the extent of the damage.”
