Dear loyal Pacific Seacraft customer,
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new owner of Pacific Seacraft Yachts. My name is Stephen Brodie and I live in Washington, North Carolina with my wife Barbara and my three children Madeleine (age 7), Reid (4), and Jacob (3). Washington is a beautiful small historic sailing community that actually predates the nation’s capital. We live in the country in a restored historic plantation home that we share with three great danes. I come from a fairly diverse background having worked as a University Scientific Diving Officer, Marine Archeologist, and Commercial Construction Project Manager.
While I very much enjoy sailing, most of my time at sea has been spent aboard research vessels searching for, documenting, and sometimes recovering some of the most famous historic shipwrecks in the world. These have included the Queen Anne’s Revenge (Blackbeard’s’s ship) off Beaufort, NC and the CSS Alabama (Confederate Raider) off Cherbourg, France. I have long been a student of boat building and Naval Architecture and during a stint with the International Institute for Maritime Research had opportunity to assist with historic vessel restorations. During this time I developed a keen appreciation for fine lines and well crafted boats. It was also during this time that I became enamored with the designs of William Crealock. I have long admired his artistry and consider it a rare privilege to be able to carry on such a fine tradition of exceptional vessels.
So where are we now? I am currently in the process of moving all of the Pacific Seacraft molds and tooling to North Carolina. Our new production facility will be located in Washington, North Carolina, an area with a fine boat building tradition. I plan to bring to North Carolina a core group of key employees from the Fullerton, CA facility. I pledge to continue to uphold the quality, craftsmanship, fine detailing, and seakeeping ability that has made Pacific Seacraft such a household name in the sailing community for 30 years. I have a true passion for these boats and will put my heart into every one that leaves our facility. Thank you for your loyalty and support and I look forward to providing you with the most beautiful and seaworthy yachts available for many years to come.
