About Us

Jens Cornelsen founded what has matured into Cornelsen & Partner some 42 years ago. In those early days yachts over 65 feet were rare. Today a yacht can often exceed 300 feet in length. Aided by innovations in material science and high end-technologies the yacht building industry has more than kept pace with developments as seen in other industries. Planning, building and operating a complex superyacht can be a challenge for the yacht owner. A professional project management company such as Cornelsen & Partner has become an industry necessity for the busy yacht owner.

Cornelsen & Partner have supervised some 90 new builds varying between 65 and 300 feet long. The office of Cornelsen & Partner is considered one of the top yacht consultancies worldwide. With an immense diversity of in-house talent and expertise for motor and sailing yachts, new build yacht completions include the 310-foot three mast schooner EOS, the 130-foot ketch rigged HETAIROS and the 148-foot-sloop SAUDADE. One of the most spectacular refits that the office is most proud to call their own, was for the complete reconstruction of the beautiful J-Class yacht ENDEAVOUR.

Partner Max Riedl gained his stripes whilst overseeing the construction of motor yachts such as the 242-foot cruiser SIREN, the 377-foot yacht LUNA and the massive 531-foot ECLIPSE.

Motor or sail, large or small, Cornelsen & Partner are there to turn every owner’s individual dream yacht into a working and reliable reality. With their expertise and knowledge, they have a track record that has regularly achieved 100 percent client satisfaction.
