In 1982, Dave Christensen, a home builder and real estate developer from Vancouver, Washington, began his foray into boatbuilding when he retired at the age of 50 and purchased an 80-foot (24m) motor yacht. Once he encountered issues with it, Dave decided to build another by ordering a hull from Westport Shipyards and completing it himself. Before the project was finished, an interested party made an offer to purchase the yacht, which Dave accepted. Seeing potential in this new venture, he officially incorporated Christensen Shipyard in 1985 with the business officially opening its doors a year later.
With over 30 years of experience and 44 yachts delivered, Christensen Yachts earned its reputation as one of the most renowned superyacht builders in America.
