About Luhrs Boats
About Luhrs Boats for sale
Luhrs boats were first introduced in the 1830s by Herny Luhrs, an immigrant from Germany. The founder did not start with boat building but was a selling of boat supplies and equipment. After generations of boat repairs and servicing his grandson Henry opened the first shipyard. In 1965 Bangor Punta purchased the company. Luchs was not finished with the boating business and founded Hunter Marine as well as Manship in the 70s (though the Luchs name was not required until 1987). The company thrived until 2012 when the parent company, Morgan Industries Corp., filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 11.Read More

There is quite a bracket when it comes to pricing Luhrs Boats for sale, primarily because they have been around for so long. The boats from the 1980s and the 1990s tend to stay under 50k, depending upon the features and the size of the boat. Of course, if you go with the biggest boat with the most features you will probably exceed this number. 2000+ models are on the higher end of the price bracket and range from the 225K+ margin. Again, this is the average price and features, the condition of the boat, and packaging will play a large part in the selling price.
