Klink & Krüger is a company that specialises in the restoration of rare German vintage motorboats.
These so-called “auto-boats” are powered by automotive engines, such as Maybach or Mercedes, which were also used, for example, in the Mercedes Nürburg 500. The elegantly proportioned motor boats are designed with understatement – they were formerly excursion boats for wealthy families and were used mainly for day trips. Today, the engine is designed with the latest technical capacities.
The special Klink & Krüger shipyard restores the boats in the place where they were originally built, 80 years ago, in a hall of the former Claus Engelbrecht Shipyard in Berlin, preserved in its original condition. Engelbrecht had once made the boats in Berlin and also made them socially acceptable.
