    Steve Barnett, Chairman of WorldSpan Marine, recently announced the acquisition of Crescent Custom Yachts. Continuing WorldSpan’s business model of acquiring key marine assets, Crescent Custom Yachts is added to WorldSpan’s already impressive portfolio which includes Queenship Marine Industries, builders of custom and semi-custom fiberglass motor yachts from 70 to 95 feet.

    Steve Barnett reported that Worldspan will continue its expansion which will include further acquisitions as opportunities arise. “It is our desire to become a full service operation within the marine sector encompassing all facets of the ever expanding yachting community. Our goal is to cover all potential needs of the industry from new builds to service and ultimately moorage”.

    Crescent Custom Yachts is a well-respected and innovative Pacific Northwest builder of fiberglass motor yachts from 110 to 135 feet. Crescent was the first builder in North America to receive full MCA compliance on a fiberglass motoryacht in 2000, and has achieved previous and ongoing success building yachts to some of the most demanding standards within the industry including ABS, Bureau Veritas and French Affaire Maritime.

    The craftsmanship exemplified in all Crescent yachts is immediately evident, from superb exterior styling to impressive interiors. Due to technical innovations and fresh design ideas, Crescent Custom Yachts has been consistently featured in yachting industry publications worldwide.

    “Crescent was a natural and very desirable acquisition for the WorldSpan group. With Queenship already in place, the acquisition of Crescent Custom Yachts continues to fill out WorldSpan’s product line of luxury motoryachts” stated Jim Hawkins COO Queenship Marine and Crescent Yacht Yachts

    Hawkins further emphasized that “Worldspan is now able to satisfy the needs of a very broad client spectrum and with the skill and talent assembled from both companies the uninterrupted flow of quality and craftsmanship will be maintained”.

    Included in the acquisition is a 125' hull built by Crescent and awaiting a contract to take it to completion. The raised pilothouse configurations – 2 different versions- use the hull and superstructure as they now stand and would require little up front effort to get this project underway.

    This is the 4-stateroom lay-out, which features a full beam master located at forward midship...

    The Tri-level option uses most of the existing superstructure already on the yacht and would be an expeditious way of getting this yacht underway, saving a new owner both time and cost. The engineering and drawings for the tri-level are already complete and ready to move forward as a fully classed ABS and MCA project, which makes it very inviting for clientele wishing to put their vessel into charter service.
