The Gregory C Marshall-designed Crescent 164 is currently under construction in Richmond, BC


Danzante Bay has been sold to an American client

Canadian boatbuilder Crescent Custom Yachts has a 50m Gregory C Marshall-designed Crescent 164’ under construction at its shipyard in Richmond, British Columbia. The project was sold to an American client who has named the yacht Danzante Bay after his resort and golf course in Loreto, Mexico.

Crescent has been building boats over 100ft in length since 1986. The Crescent 164’ is said to be the largest recreational motoryacht built in Canada, the company claims.

Tim Charles, Crescent Custom Yachts principal, says: “We are excited to add this exceptional vessel to our line of custom yachts. The composite hull was purchased from Christensen Shipyards. It is well built and is a proven platform for the Crescent design.”

Crescent Custom Yachts is a private company within the Platinum Marine Group that was acquired by Tim Charles in 2015. The company is based in Richmond, a suburb of Vancouver, and includes yacht refit specialist Platinum Marine in the same location.

Sister companies comprise Tactical Custom Boats, a high-performance aluminium boat builder, CCY Marine, a boathouse construction company, Milltown Marine Services, a full-service boat repair company located at Milltown Marina in Vancouver, and WrapBoats, a marine vinyl wrap finisher.
