Ellsworth Marine team joins Crow’s Nest Yachts


The management team of Ellsworth Marine joined forces with Crow's Nest Yachts following the recent merger of Ellsworth's assets into Crow's Nest.

Founder Tom Ellsworth and sales manager Bruce Sterling have a wealth of experience and professionalism, according to Crow's Nest Yachts. During the last several years, they have placed more than $100 million of Riviera Yachts into the market, along with a large amount of brokerage boats.

"The addition of Tom and Bruce to our team strengthens our position in the industry. These are top quality people and we are thrilled to be working with them," said Anthony Hsieh, CEO of Crow's Nest Yachts, in a statement.

Ellsworth called Crow's Nest Yachts "a tremendous organization with a laser focus on sportfishing.

"Anthony Hsieh has stayed the course in very difficult times and I am positive that his organization will be the premier sportfishing yacht sales and service center on the West Coast, if they are not already today," he added.

Ellsworth will maintain his brokerage license through Crow's Nest Yachts, and will focus on special projects, beginning with the re-launch of the Eastern Pacific Yacht Club with its floating clubhouse, the 165-foot mother ship Pacific Provider. Other projects include organizing a CNY Magdalena Bay Fishing Rendezvous the first week of November, and a satellite tagging program/contest.

Sterling, who has a strong background in the sportfishing yacht market, has joined the Shelter Island (San Diego) Crow's Nest Yachts office.
