Local Owners Acquire Crow's Nest Yachts Seattle
Yacht and Brokerage Business Moving to New Lake Union Location
SEATTLE --- Crow's Nest Yachts Seattle, featuring
premier new yachts for sale and a robust brokerage
business, is now under the ownership of three local
yacht brokers with more than 80 years combined
experience in the industry. Dan Wood, Vic Parcells
and Dale Partna are the new principals, acquiring
the Seattle location of Crow's Nest Yachts.
"This is the best of both worlds," says Wood.
"Not only are we able to make decisions for
our clients on a local level, we're also
continuing to operate under the Crow's Nest
umbrella for access to quality yachts up and
down the West Coast, as well as a world class
website and branding."
The new ownership is moving into renovated
office space as of November 1st, 2010 on Lake
Union, right around the corner from the current
location, with increased freshwater moorage
right in the heart of Seattle.
"We have 22 slips for our brokerage boats," says Parcells.
"This gives us easy moorage for people wanting to buy or
sell yachts, and we're capable of handling boats up to 150 feet."
Joining Wood, Parcells and Partna in the new office location are
Office Manager Nicole Buchholzer, and accountant Suzanne Parcells.
Crow's Nest Yachts has set a high standard of excellence
in the Pacific Northwest, and the new owners of Crow's
Nest Yachts Seattle will continue to provide exceptional
service, aiming to exceed expectations for existing and
"This ownership move gives us more autonomy
and we'll be able to better serve yacht owners
here in the Northwest," says Partna. "With our
longtime experience on the water, we're in tune
with local cruising grounds, and how people boat in this area."
Crow's Nest Yachts Seattle will continue to
sell and broker boats ideal for cruising in
Pacific Northwest waters.
Crow's Nest Yachts is marking 35 years of
service to West Coast boaters, with nearly
ten years in Seattle. They are the dealers
for Viking, Princess, Viking Sportcruisers,
Symbol and Tiara, with locations in California
in both San Diego and Newport Beach. Currently,
