SAN DIEGO — Yacht brokers Eric Pearson and Michael Selter have purchased Crow’s Nest Yachts, it was announced in mid-November.
Crow’s Nest, located at San Diego’s Shelter Island, will reportedly focus on upgraded personal service and “fit and finish” operations, according to a released statement. The yacht sales brokerage launched in 1975 and offered its customers a variety of sportfishers, recreational vessels and luxury yachts sized from 40 to 150 feet.
Pearson and Selter plan to contemporize all business operations as well as brighten the firm’s 1,650-square foot offices, enhance exterior signage, and fully outfit its privately owned 23-vessel capacity sales marina, the released statement continued.
Pearson began his yacht broker career at Crow’s Nest more than a decade ago. He spent the last 12 years as a broker at Fraser Yachts. His father founded Pearson Fuel Dock, which is walking distance from Crow’s Nest.
Selter, meanwhile, was a yacht broker and brokerage owner affiliated with Fraser Yachts. He formerly owned and operated American Yachts, a full-serve brokerage with offices in Newport Beach and San Diego, which was located directly across the street from Crow’s Nest.
