Although Luhrs ceased production and went into bankruptcy in 2012, MB Marine Industries then purchased the brand.
This company (which formerly included Hunter, Silverton, and Mainship) produced inboard-powered sport-fishing boats in express and convertible models. They were well-known for providing a value to the buyer, with lower than average price-points for the LOA. MB Marine industries has said it is committed to "continuing the 60 year legacy started by founder Henry Luhrs, by honoring his vision, his dream and passion that made Luhrs one of the oldest boat companies in the world".
The Thirty Open is one serious sportfishing boat, engineered to offer the best performance and accommodations for its size. A wide beam provides stability, the Carolina flare keeps her dry and a raised bridge deck with sunshade offers optimal visibility. The Thirty Open is loaded with a long list of standards - a fire extinguishing system, compass, recessed trim tabs, battery charger, to name just a few - that would be offered as options on most other boats in this category. Even the custom welded aluminum tower with hardtop comes standard. Real walk around capability and easy access to all service points set the Thirty Open apart. The smart design even extends to the engine room, which rivals that of most 40-footers.
