Svendsen’s acquired


Northern California-based Svendsen’s Boat Works and its divisions, a family owned and operated company since 1963, have been acquired by Bay Maritime Corp., parent company to Bay Marine Boatworks and Bay Ship & Yacht.

“Our customers will find that it’s business as usual with our friendly staff and excellent service team,” said Sean Svendsen, who will continue as general manager.

Established in 1977, Bay Maritime and its affiliates are owned and operated by President Bill Elliott and General Manager Alan Cameron, and include a full-service ship repair facility in Alameda (Bay Ship & Yacht) and a full-service boatyard in Richmond (Bay Marine Boatworks).

The acquisition includes Svendsen’s Marine Distributing, Svendsen’s Metal Works, Svendsen’s Chandlery and Svendsen’s Marine International.
