A CLASS OF ITS OWN since 1970

Each of our yachts is the result of dedication and passion.

Dear customers, dear friends of Drettmann Yachts,
for us, no two yachts are the same. With a great deal of experience and passion, we personally fulfil individual requests from customers around the world. We know that a yacht is much more than a dream come true for its owner – it’s a philosophy of life.

For many years we have been working closely with numerous renowned shipyards and have always found the right yacht for our customers on different continents and had it built with above-average commitment and high quality. In addition to overseeing various projects in partnership with renowned shipyards, Drettmann Yachts is represented on all the world's oceans by the sport yacht line "Elegance" as well as the explorer class "Bandido". Details are crucial here and always require passionate commitment combined with decades of experience.

On our yachts, you can see, feel and experience something truly special. Every time.

Drettmann Yachts celebrates its 50th anniversary.

A total of 1,500 newbuilds with lengths of up to 55 meters have been built under Drettmann's direction; to date, around 10,000 boats and yachts have been sold in the company's history. With an extremely diverse range of products, the Bremen-based yacht specialist is steadily developing into a multi-brand supplier.

Albert Drettmann: "We only work for the customer and find the right yacht on the market for each of them." Current Drettmann sales reach up to the 50-meter mark.


In 2019 Drettmann Yachts additionally took over the distribution for Bavaria motor yachts and now offers a wide range of products "made in Germany" for all those who to “taste“ the world of water sports. Bavaria boats have always been known for their excellent price-performance ratio.


In 2017, Drettmann augmented its portfolio as the exclusive and experienced sales partner of Gulf Craft’s multi-award-winning yachts for Europe, Russia and Ukraine – another important step towards expansion and internationalisation.


Drettmann develops a new generation of diesel-electric pod drives that set new standards in terms of energy balance and manoeuvrability. The pod drives can rotate by 360° without restrictions, allowing them to actively determine the course. They represent the most efficient and most environmentally friendly way of powering a vessel and make parking seem like child's play, even in the narrowest of harbours.


The new representative company building in Bremen-Hemelingen becomes the geographic and entrepreneurial centre of Drettmann Yachts. There are up to 80 yachts available to be discovered by buyers, which can also be test-run directly on the Weser. The sellers have the possibility to have their yachts brought up-to-date in the own shipyard.


The success story of the Bandido and Elegance yachts begins with the construction of the first five yachts in Taiwan. The two series with ships from 15 to 54 meters sell more than 350 vessels in just a few years, making them two of the most successful yacht series in the world.


In 1989 Albert Drettmann, together with his wife Claudia, took over the business management. Soon they started constructing their own yachts and continued making Drettmann a success story.


In the course of the partnership, which started 1977 and has lasted over 20 years, the Drettmann family has sold over 750 Neptunus motor yachts by taking on the role of chief agency for all of Europe. Only the Benelux countries were supplied by the Dutch shipbuilder directly.


The corporate society starts in 1970 in a small garage in Bremen. It was than that Traute and Dierk Drettmann established a small trade for second hand boats.
