Crow's Nest Yachts Named West Coast Dealer for Westcoast Custom Yachts
Renowned Boat Builder Forbes Cooper Launching New Models in May
SEATTLE, Washington --- Crow's Nest Yachts is pleased
to announce it is now the exclusive West Coast dealer for
Westcoast Custom Yachts, located in British Columbia,
Canada. Crow's Nest Yachts is featuring the North
American-built yachts at its locations in Seattle,
Newport Beach and San Diego beginning in early May.
Renowned boat builder Forbes Cooper is the genius
behind Westcoast Custom Yachts. He's been
manufacturing boats since the 1970's, first
with his Cooper sailboat, and then with the
Cooper Prowler series of yachts in the 1980's.
Cooper has come out of retirement to put his
mark on these new well-crafted yachts.
"Forbes Cooper builds a flawless Northwest
cruising boat at a great value – just what
we've been looking for," said Vic Parcells,
Crow's Nest Yachts Seattle. "This is a local
builder that allows us to take a prospective
buyer to the factory near Vancouver, B.C.
and back in one day, allowing the buyer to
get the perfect boat for them. We struck a
deal to represent Westcoast Custom Yachts
almost immediately, and could not be happier."
"We love these guys," said David Cooper,
Westcoast Custom Yachts. "They're so professional
and enthusiastic. They have an attitude you don't
always see in the industry right now. They're very
Westcoast Custom Yachts features 62'
and 64' Pilothouse models, combining
large interiors, roomy flybridges,
and expansive cockpits with impressive
performance, dependability and economy.
Due in late May is a 64' model from their
new line of low-profile, customizable Express
Cruisers, featuring modern European styling.
"We customize the boats to what owners want,"
said Forbes Cooper, Westcoast Custom Yachts.
"No two boats built over 50 feet are alike,
and we show owners mock-ups of features and
finishes they request to be certain we meet
their approval before we build it."
Cooper also designed the new boats to be popular
with yacht owners who wish to combine cruising
and sport fishing, with plenty of cockpit space
to add sportfishing chairs, and other accessories.
"These semi-custom designs are perfect for West
Coast boaters," said Dennis Riehl, Crow's Nest
Yachts Newport Beach. "They're exactly the kind
of yacht and price point that works well for either
the weekend boater or serious long range yachtsman."
Crow's Nest Yachts maintains a high standard of
excellence on the West Coast, and with the addition
of Westcoast Custom Yachts, continues to provide
exceptional service to exceed expectations of existing
and prospective clients.
Crow's Nest Yachts is marking more than 35 years
of service to West Coast boaters with locations
in Seattle, Washington, and in California in both
San Diego and Newport Beach. Currently, Crow's Nest
Yachts has a wide selection of yachts available,
with inventory valued at more than $47 million.
