Since 1973 the thrill and joy of sailing and the ambition only to work with quality have been the driving forces which have created the myth about Luffe Yachts.
As an employee Oluf Jørgensen started in 1963 building elegant Dragons in wood and he continued on his own in 1973 with the production of the skerrycruiser Ylva.
The interest for these slim, fast-sailing boats made Oluf Jørgensen further develop this into a new concept, which could offer the sailing family the desired space below deck.
In 1979 Oluf Jørgensen thus created the Luffe 37 which today forms a considerable part of the basis for one of the most successful shipyards in Denmark.
In 1983 the Luffe 44 was introduced, the fastest boat in Sjælland Rundt Race (the Danish boat race around the island of Zealand) that year as well as in 1984 and 1985.
Since then, Luffe Yachts has produced Luffe Yachts measuring 36, 40, 43, 45, 46, 48 and 54 feet.
All yachts have been constructed with regard to each buyers individual desires for accomodation and detailed arrangements.
INDIVIDUALITY, QUALITY & COMFORT
When you enter a Luffe boat you will experience how strength and elegance is united with comfort.
You will also be suprised to see how noble woods apear beautiful and refined.
On a Luffe boat you have a say in choosing the material and arrangement as well as details can be made to fit you desires and ideas. This also includes choosing wood, grain and textile.
If you compare a Luffe boat with the prefabricated boats you will discover that there is no extra charge on the influence you have on your Luffe boat.
The fundamental idea of the arrangement of the Luffe boats is to take a starting point in the sailing characteristics.
From front to aft all the Luffe boats are arraged to make the stay in harbour or when you ride as pleaseant as possible with all the opertunities of home - just smaller measures. This is why the smallest of the Luffe boats is 36 feet.
The intent has always been that the dimensions in the simple cabins and at the working zones - pantry, navigationcenter and bathroom - should be roomy and suited for a family stay of some duration. Furtermore, the textile fabrics are to be of such quality that they are resistant to the hard life at sea and at the same time meet any desires for specific colors and patterns as regards design.
When all these ideas are combined in the Luffe boats it is like entering a whole new world of experience for the senses and of intense atmosphere.

SIMPLICITY & SAFETY
The layout of the cockpit, the clean lines of the hull and the exelent working conditions onboard a Luffe boat create the impression of a racing boat.
This is how it is supposed to be when an experienced crew are to work optimally and sail the boat to its margins.
However the Luffe boats sail as racing boats, they do not handle as other racing boats. The Luffe boats can easilly be driven by two people. Halyards and winches are all close and the Luffe easilly converts the force of the wind into speed - not hard work and huge waves.
You also find aproved and abundantly dimensioned winches from Frederik Andersen. The clutches can match every test you might put on them.
Both standing and running rig er designed to fit the Luffe. From this you can either trim the boat to heigher speeds or relax and know that a forgotten halyard will not end in mast damage.
Under the water line a Luffe hides more then just beautiful lines. The keel is produced from easy maintenance lead and the rudder shaft is hefty aluminium, which keeps the risk of damaging the rudder at a minimum even at heavy strain.
This makes the Luffe boat last years into the future. This holds for all Luffe boats, since Oluf Jørgensen always designes and builds. He has put his soul into every Luffe since the model of the first Luffe 37.
