Crescent 117

Sept 10, 2019

Crescent Custom Yachts has a Gregory C. Marshall designed Crescent 164’ (50m) under construction in their shipyard in Richmond, BC.  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 world-class boats over 100’ since 1986.  The Crescent 164’ is the largest recreational motor yacht to be built in Canada.
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.”
The project was brokered by Northrop and Johnson’s Paul Daubner and Steve Elario.  Northrop and Johnson also represent the 2020 Crescent 117 Fast Pilothouse and is available for sale.
