The Sirius boatyard was established in 1970 in Plön, in the heart of Schleswig-Holstein. About 60 dedicated boat builders, carpenters and technicians make 14 to 16 deck-saloon yachts annually, each specifically tailored to the needs of her owner. Although the company is small, its long history, its outstanding designs and its aim of always working to the highest standards have made Sirius into a synonym for quality in the industry.
In 1988 began the development of the Sirius deck saloon yachts based initially on the rig and hull of their well-known fast sailing yacht, the Sirius 31.
House designer Marc-Oliver von Ahlen and yard owner Torsten Schmidt in close team work on the design specifications and development, with extensive feedback from their many dedicated customers and have produced a definite design concept that combines the fun of sailing with remarkably comfortable, spacious boats by the actual models.
The since 1995 from boat building master Torsten Schmidt, son of the company founder, leaded craftsmen crew is happy of the growing interests of the active and individually co-creation, which makes every Sirius a multifaceted and unique fingerprint of the owner.
Because of the calm and the time the yard spends for intensive talks and the exchange of experience with the interested parties as well as the numerous visits of the owner during the 4 to 6 month building phase, the owner takes direct influence to individual design-, equipment- and fit out-versions. So at the end the owner gets a yacht designed to there needs.
The motivation of the Sirius-team, a big part of the ideas and experience that go into a boat and the fun that you notice when they are working, develops from the close contact,the exchange of ideas,and after a short time on a friendly basis,that in the building phase between the owner and the workers from the ship yard grows.
The Sirius-team was invited to a day trip by the owner of new ships nearly every year as a result of the friendship between the owner and the Sirius-team. With 5 apprentices each year we get fresh ideas and new motivation. Regularly is the Sirius ship yard in the top three places in the examination table.
This continuous of quality improvement, customer loyalty, employee motivation, personal dedication, is the main reason the Sirius ship yard is one of the remaining yards in Germany in this segment that builds small series, high quality and individual, designed to the owners needs.
