Christensen Shipyards resumes production
In July 2015, SuperyachtNews.com reported on the new ownership of Christensen Shipyards and its ongoing yacht projects. The US-based yacht builder provides an update on its Custom Series projects as it increases its workforce to 105 craftspeople.
Under the guidance of controlling shareholder Henry G. Luken, Christensen has resumed production on hulls 36 (M/Y Silver Lining), 38 and 40 (M/Y Chasseur). Built to ABS Unlimited Cruising and under 300gt (US regulatory), Silver Lining features a traditional black walnut interior and stonework throughout. Designed with larger than normal living spaces in the main salon, dining, and skylounge areas, this spacious six stateroom yacht will sleep up to 12 guests. With an expected delivery in the final quarter of 2015, Silver Lining will debut in 2016.
Christensen hull 42 concept.
ABS & MCA certified for unlimited cruising, Chasseur offers six cabins that accommodate up to 12 guests, with an overall interior offering a number of dining and entertaining opportunities. While hull 38 has moved into production and expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2018. A sistership to Hull 36, Hull 38 has a main salon, dining room, and skylounge, which are larger than one might expect for this size vessel. Like Silver Lining, Hull 38 is being built to ABS Unlimited Cruising and will keep under 300gt.
The fourth project comes with the successfully negotiated purchase of hull 42 by Christensen's new management team. With design and production commencing immediately to meet a delivery date in the last quarter of 2017, the 164’ project will also be built to ABS & MCA Certified Unlimited Cruising.
Christensen will have representatives on site at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, which starts this week in Florida, US.
