A Yacht Owner's Shipyard


Nearly four decades ago a successful contractor named Dave Christensen couldn’t find a rugged, beautifully finished U.S.-built yacht, so he decided to build his own. When he succeeded, he decided he could offer the same quality and reliability to other yacht owners, and so Christensen Shipyard was born.

Today, Christensen continues the company’s original founding vision to deliver to other fellow yachtsmen beautiful, ocean-going yachts. Today, Christensen is led by two owners – who have owned between of them six Christensen yachts – and who are committed to elevating Christensen Yachts to new heights in both finish quality and in the quality of the building experience.

With nearly 1,000 man-years of boatbuilding experience between them, Christensen offers an incomparable workforce, each of whom is committed to their boatbuilding art. The entire workforce is also committed to the highest standards of honesty and transparency to ensure each boat is not only built to the highest quality, but delivered on time and on budget, as well

When Dave Christensen opened the shipyard he had a sign put over the entrance, “Through these doors pass the finest boatbuilders in the world.” To which the shipyard’s new owners add: “And the most world’s most satisfied yacht owners.”

State of the Art
Facilities


The Christensen Shipyard is located in the beautiful Pacific Northwestern, in Vancouver, Washington, directly across the mighty Columbia River from Portland, Oregon. The yard consists of over 180,000 square feet of climate-controlled manufacturing space and a seven-acre marina. A dozen large shipbuilding bays located directly across from piping, carpentry, machinery and electrical shops allows the company’s 120-plus workforce to build with extremely high levels of efficiency. Christensen’s facility houses each supporting craft and trade, including a state-of-the-art stone working shop and world-class upholstery studio. The efficiency and control provided by Christensen’s facilities allows it to be a world leader in yacht construction. While Christensen’s existing shipyard allows it to build world-class yachts up to 50 meters (164 feet) in length, new facilities are in development that will permit the shipyard to deliver yachts up to 225 feet in length.

Located on Tellico Lake, Tennessee, the new 55-acre yard consists of 450,000 square feet of climate-controlled manufacturing space and will offer 13 large manufacturing and assembly bays.

Great work doesn't go unnoticed.
