Today, Christensen continues the company’s original founding vision to deliver beautiful, ocean-going yachts to other fellow yachtsmen. Today, Christensen is led by two owners – who have owned six Christensen yachts – and are committed to elevating Christensen Yachts to new heights in quality and the building experience for Christensen yacht construction.
