History

CR Yachts is a family run company that was founded in 1989 by Charles and Marita Rutgersson. At the age of 15 Charles started working at Harry Hallbergs Yard in Kungsviken, nowadays Hallberg-Rassy. He worked there for 15 years, 7 years as a carpenter and 8 as Service manager, before he decided to start his own company. For 4 years he helped boat owners around in Europe with various things from changing impeller on a 31 foot boat to participate in building a 110 foot Super yacht. After all years going around talking to and helping boat owners, he found that there was a lack of sailboats on the market that offered a High Quality wooden interior, good sailing performance and the possibility to get the boat customised. So in 1990 Charles developed the CB 370. Since then more than 150 boats have left the company, both One-offs and own models.

At CR Yachts we believe in building our boats according to our customer wishes. By combining the boatbuilding skill and engineering knowledge that is available at the yard, we can do pretty much anything needed in order to built a boat in the way the owner wants it.

Service

When the boats are being built, we choose the suppliers who can meet our high demands on the quality. All the way from the small fibreglass tread, that is the base in the hull, to the china and glasses from Rörstrands and Orrefors, only the best is chosen.

Thats why all the CR´s comes with an extensive warranty package. 2 years general warranty and 5 years construction warranty.

We also offer our customers a unique service, one year after the delivery our service team will visit the boat and perform a test of all the systems to make sure that they work properly. Our service team can also help installing equipment, after the boat has been delivered.
