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 every yacht is unique and a matter of the heart. With our many years of experience and passion, we personally take care of the individual wishes of our customers worldwide. Because we know that a yacht is more than just a dream for its owner - it embodies a philosophy of life.

We are a third generation German family business and for many years we have been working closely with renowned shipyards and have always found the perfect yacht for our customers on different continents. We attach great importance to above-average commitment and high quality. In addition to overseeing various projects in partnership with renowned shipyards, we are represented on the world's oceans with our "Elegance" line of sport yachts and the "Bandido" Explorer class.

For us, details are crucial and they require passionate commitment combined with decades of experience. On our yachts you can see, feel and experience the extraordinary - again and again.

We look forward to presenting our exclusive yachts to you and making your dreams come true.

Best regards,
Claudia and Albert Drettmann

Drettmann Yachts opens new location and expands service to include charter yachts.

Drettmann Yachts is expanding its services to include yacht charters, opening a new office in the prestigious port of Puerto Portals, Mallorca.

With the entry of Annabell Drettmann, daughter of Claudia and Albert Drettmann, and her business partner Yannick Altevolmer, Drettmann Yachts is now a german family business in third generation. We know that it is the collaboration of different generations that makes a company so valuable.

Annabell Drettmann explains, "Our goal is to offer you an unparalleled yachting experience, which is why we recently started offering charter yachts. A charter vacation is also perfect as a test and inspiration for a future yacht purchase."


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.
