grady hokie - 7/10/2007 5:17 AM

Luhrs has a rep no differant than bayliner. when you buy a bayliner, stay near land. I remember checking out a luhrs in 97. it was on a rack and when "kicking the tires" I hit the hull about mid ship on the side wall on the outside with my fist. the hull FLEXED. I am not kidding. what a total peice of crap. these owners bought crap but unfortunately luhrs is treating them as such. I hope these guys get made whole but i then hope luhrs goes out of biddness.
I want this thread to continue till its over/reached its conclusion. I enjoy it and am just wondering...
How do I tell what number a post is????
thanks
Just becuse you over paid for your boats name is no resone to bash Bayliner , I would expect better out of a Hokie .

I work next to the local Luhr's dealer and see em collecting dust. Since Jan I think he mave have sold one 32 to a guy that still doesn't have the internet at his house or job and likes big shiny things and traded in two boats to make the deal happen.

They're just gonna let him sit on it for a few years and then pay him fair market value for it. One expensive boat. I mean condo.

I just saw Major Issue's other Lurhs, a 36 convertible, docked at a marina in Cocoa Beach. Must have been a decent boat to have "lurhed" him into a second Lurhs. These boats are pretty but I guess the beauty is only skin deep...

Any new info here?

I have a question that maybe someone can help me with. I see an 07 41 Luhrs Convertable for sale at my marina. The list price is somewhere in the $850K space, and I'd imagine these boats (until this thread that is) sold for the low $600K range. The Tiara 39 convertable (new for 05) can be had for the $580 to $620K range if my understanding is correct. Why would anyone consider a Luhrs?

So if someone who doesn't have internet access buys a boat thats a lemon, it's their fault and not the boat builder?

What a shame! The Luhrs name on a boat once meant a true classic. I am not going through 42 pages of posts to see if this has been discussed, but before control changed hands Luhrs built one of the best boats on the water. Just shows what a motive for profit can do - removes the personal pride and desire to build the best. JMHO

Just to clarify my previous post:
The history of the Luhrs Corporation dates back to the 1830's with a German immigrant by the name of Henry Luhrs. He became involved in the marine trade supplying ships in New York City. He eventually owned his own chandlery and even his own ship, The Sophia R. Luhrs. His grandson, another Henry, shared the same love of the sea and continued the family heritage by building and repairing boats on the New Jersey coast.
About 100 years after his grandfather started his business, the younger Henry opened his; a small yard in Morgan, New Jersey. From these humble beginnings sprang a vibrant and thriving business called the Henry Luhrs Sea Skiff Company. As the business grew, Henry's sons, John and Warren became involved and soon the company was producing over 1200 boats a year. In 1965, Bangor Punta, a huge timber conglomerate made Henry an offer too good to refuse and the company was sold.
'Don't think I would want a boat build by a timber conglomerate'

Aren't the Luhrs sons running the company now? It is typical of a family business that is passed down. Junior(s) are probably spoiled and greedy, and don't have a fraction of the passion, commitment, and knowledge that daddy had.

I believe they are building Silverton and Mainship. I am not particularly enamored with either of those brands. Mainship is not junk, but they are definitely a production boat. Toured the plant at St. Augustine looking at the trawler. No better than middle of the road build....
