Crosby Yacht Yard of Osterville, Mass., was appointed the exclusive Windsor Craft Yachts dealer for the Northeast region of the United States.

Established in 1850, Crosby Yacht Yard is one of the oldest, continually operating full-service marine yards in the country, according to vice president Gregory R. Egan.

“The classic design and high quality of the unique Windsor Craft brand will be a fine complement to our company’s boatbuilding heritage and be a perfect fit for the traditional New England boating environment,” Egan said in a statement.

The Windsor Craft 36 Open and 36 Hardtop can be viewed at Crosby Yacht Yard.

Based in Minneapolis, Windsor Craft Yachts is a Genmar Holdings company. Genmar is also headquartered in Minneapolis.
