Luger Industries (USA)

1952 - 1987

Founded by the brothers Ren and Orm Luger in Burnsville, Minnesota USA. The firm began by building small kit powerboats and soon branched into the construction of sailing craft and became, according to it's own catalog, "The world's Largest Manufacturer of Kit Boats". The sailboat models ranged from 8 to 35 feet.
Luger turned out a lot of sailboats still seen today primarily in the mid-western USA. Though limited, most of the information seen here comes from the companies own sales literature.
