Naval Engineer Hermann Blohm and mechanical engineer Ernst Voss founded the shipyard together in 1877, on the island of Kuhwerder near Hamburg, with the goal of building iron steamships. Even then, Blohm & Voss thought big, creating building berths long enough to accommodate ships of up to 100 metres in length. In addition to building steamships, the shipyard launched sailing ships, warships, and also passenger liners such as the Europa, which won the Blue Riband in 1930 for its record transatlantic passage, averaging 27.90 knots.
During the early 20th century, Blohm & Voss also built luxury yachts for royalty and wealthy socialites, including the 124-metre superyacht Savarona, delivered to American heiress Mrs. Callawader in 1931. Savarona later became the Turkish Presidential yacht. The shipyard also built the German battleship Bismark, which was sunk in 1941 named Blohm+Voss Yacht.
