Today, Christensen continues the company’s original founding vision to deliver beautiful, ocean-going yachts to other fellow yachtsmen. Christensen is led by two owners – who have owned six Christensen yachts – and are committed to elevating Christensen Yachts to new heights in quality and the building experience.
With nearly 1.000 men of boat building experience under one roof, Christensen offers an incomparable workforce.
Christensen luxury motor yachts are world-celebrated for their advanced technology and high standards. The Christensen boatyard, located in Vancouver, Washington is spread out over 180.000 sq. ft of climate-controlled manufacturing space, with a seven-acre marina, and 12 large manufacturing and assembly bays. In the 1980s Dave Christensen opened his own yacht building factory on the Columbia River to build a line of mega yachts, later allowing Christensen Yachts to become one of the forerunners in making composite fiberglass super yachts. Christensen yachts for sale range from 115 ft to 155 ft in length and are crafted with great attention to detail and at the highest quality.
The Christensen Custom Yachts Series is designed with an efficient and effective layout, and designed and constructed in a shorter period of time than the general line of Mega Yachts. Popular with celebrities, Christensen Yachts provide the customer with the utmost style, customization and design. Specializing in composite fiberglass construction, Christensen advise that these hulls require less maintenance than other materials meaning crew can focus more on other duties plus they provide insulation to a level other material might not. Christensen also pride themselves on their woodwork and upholstery, ensuring that the interior of a Christensen yacht meets even the highest of standards.
Rare among superyacht builders, Christensen Yachts does virtually all of its work in house. The Vancouver, Washington–based yard has its own metal department for completing stainless handrails, stairways, anchor pockets, and other custom pieces, as well as a stone shop for marble, onyx, quartz, granite, and limestone used in the inlaid floors, countertops, and panels; and shops for woodworking, painting, and upholstery. Vertical integration allows the yard to deliver exceptional details for its yachts, which run up to 164 ft. Christensen’s Chasseur won top award in its category in the 2017 International Superyacht Society, in part for the intricate interior. Located on a seven-acre marina, the shipyard has a dozen bays enclosed in 180.000 sq. ft of climate-controlled space.
