CR Yachts is a family run company that was founded in 1989 by Charles and Marita Rutgersson. At the age of 15 Charles started working at Harry Hallbergs Yard in Kungsviken, nowadays Hallberg-Rassy where he worked for 15 years- 7 years as a carpenter and 8 as service manager, before deciding to start his own company. For 4 years he helped boat owners around Europe with various tasks from changing an impeller on a 31 foot boat to participating on the build of a 110 foot super yacht. After years talking to and assissting boat owners, he realised that there was a lack of sailing boats on the market that offered a high quality wooden interior, good sailing performance and the possibility of customisation. So, in 1990 Charles developed the CB 370 and has since then delivered more than 150 boats from company, both one-offs and own models.
