Superyacht builder Abeking & Rasmussen announced recently, that Hermann H. Schaedla died suddenly on the 18th of April 2011. Hermann Schaedla died at the age of 76.

Hermann Schaedla grew up in California but was soon drawn back to Germany as the country where he could achieve his goal of becoming a shipbuilder. But he actually achieved far more. In 1959, at the age of just 24, he took over the shipyard from his grandfather and company founder Henry Rasmussen. From then on, he repeatedly succeeded in transforming his visions of extraordinary, unique ships into reality.

To begin with, it was sailing ships, later motor yachts and vessels for the naval and public sector that created a sensation the world over and laid the foundations for the excellent reputation of Abeking & Rasmussen. For many decades, Hermann Schaedla was the personification of that success. A man whose personality, unflagging commitment and immense enthusiasm for all things maritime set new standards in the shipbuilding world.

His death means a painful loss for all the members of his family, his employees and everyone who accompanied him over the years. They will cherish fond memories of Hermann Schaedla’s energy, vigour and visionary work and keep them alive as inspiration and motivation.
