Crescent Custom Yachts in Richmond, British Columbia, says it is currently building the largest recreational vessel in Canada. The 164-ft. Crescent was designed by Gregory C. Marshall. Its U.S. owner has named it Danzante Bay after his resort and golf course in Loreto, Mexico.

“The composite hull was purchased from Christensen Shipyards,” said Tim Charles, Crescent Custom Yachts principal, in a statement.“ It is well built and is a proven platform for the Crescent design.”

Crescent Custom Yachts has been building boats since 1984. The group includes Platinum Marine, specializing in yacht refits at the same location. Sister companies include Tactical Custom Boats, a high performance aluminum boat builder, CCY Marine, a boathouse construction company, Milltown Marine Services, a full service boat repair company and WrapBoats, a marine vinyl wrap finisher.
