Lubeca Marine traces its origins back to a ship management company that was founded by the late Capt. Klaus S. Boehe in Hong Kong in 1988.
His son, Jan-Peter Boehe, joined the company three years later, and the company soon developed into a ship holding company. The company acquired its first ship in 1995. Additional, second-hand vessels were purchased in the following years, primarily geared tweendeckers up to 5,000 dwt.
Since 2000 Lubeca Marine has been based in Lübeck, Germany, from where it runs the technical and nautical management for the Lubeca fleet. The company also handles all crewing activities in-house.
Lubeca Marine built its first newbuildings in collaboration with Dipl. Ing. Bernd Neitzel, adding two 17,000 dwt heavy-lift tweendeckers to the Lubeca fleet in 2011.
After working for Lubeca for more than five years, Max Gottwald became a partner of our company in 2011.
In 2015 Jebsen Shipping Partners was founded by the family-owned shipping companies Reederei Becker and Reederei Kahrs from Jork, Reederei Boehe/Lubeca Marine, and Reederei Jebsen from Hong Kong. Jan-Peter Boehe and Max Gottwald have active roles in this joint venture, in addition to their responsibilities at Lubeca.
In 2020 third-generation Jonas Boehe joined Jan-Peter Boehe and Max Gottwald on Lubeca’s management team.
Presently, Lubeca operates a fleet of multi-purpose/heavy-lift vessels up to 17,000 dwt, container ships up to 1,300 TEU, and coasters. At the beginning of 2021, the company signed contracts for the construction of several 5,200 dwt eco-freighter newbuildings. The first delivery is expected in 2023.
