Location: USA
Specialties: Composite motoryachts

Christensen Yachts is positioned amongst the world’s composite fiberglass construction leaders. With a large fleet of yachts, ranging from 35m to 50m, the yard focuses on achieving the best quality and high attention to detail in each of its superyachts. Founded in 1986 by Dave Christensen, today this American company is building exquisite custom luxury yachts that do very well on both the sales and charter markets. Each Christensen yacht that comes out of the shipyard is built in compliance with ABS and UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency classification standards. Dubbing itself a “yacht owner’s shipyard,” Christensen is committed to its original vision to “deliver beautiful, ocean-going yachts to other fellow yachtsmen.”

Every single Christensen yacht is built with advanced composite materials available. Their cutting-edge construction process is based on a large-scale vacuum infusion accompanied with proprietary in-house techniques to create a strength-to-weight ratio seven times stronger than steel and solid laminate. This makes all Christensen yachts true deep water, majestic global explorers. The superior strength of infused composite construction is apparent in every Christensen yacht.

The foam-cored structure of Christensen construction provides a natural absorption of mechanical and structural energy that significantly reduces shipboard noise transmission and vibration. With more than 1,000 man hours of boat building experience in their team, Christensen builds high-quality yachts that always deliver on time and budget.
