According to representatives from Crescent Custom Yachts, the company has ceased manufacturing yachts, but will be completing existing work in the yard. Sales and marketing issues were cited as reasons for discontinuing their production. Crescent has been building yachts for over a decade, utilizing hulls manufactured by Westport Yachts until a couple of years ago, when they brought manufacturing in-house with an innovative Janicki mold designed by Jack Sarin. The expandable mold allowed Crescent to build yachts from 110 feet to 130 feet in length. "Dakota" is one of their more memorable launches. Here it seen flanked by the many skilled craftsmen, engineers and employees that had made Jack Charles's company a recognized name in the yachting community.
