Christensen Shipyard has earned itself a position amongst the world's composite fibreglass construction leaders with its renowned custom and semi-custom superyachts. With a current fleet of yachts from 35 to 48m, the American company prides itself on achieving the finest quality and attention to detail in each of its megayachts.
Founder Dave Christensen began his foray into the yacht building industry with a self-commissioned custom yacht for his own private use but so strong was public interest that he opened his own shipyard on the Columbia River in the mid-1980s.
The American shipyard operates from a state-of-the-art production facility in Vancouver, Washington which includes almost 55,000-square metres of climate -controlled manufacturing space and a seven-acre marina. Each Christensen yacht to emerge from the yard is built in compliance with ABS and UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency classification standards.
The Christensen Custom Series features a range of megayachts designed with efficient and effective layouts to offer owners extreme advances in construction time to enable the all-important delivery date to arrive that much sooner. The Series aims to afford maximum creative freedom for the owner while still ensuring savings in time and money with basic engineering and standardized construction systems.
Christensen also provides itself on producing fine custom constructions of the utmost style, customization and design tailored to perfection.
Besides construction services the company also offers the sale of pre-owned Christensen models.
