Pacific Seacraft / Saga

Does anyone know who bought Pacific Seacraft and Saga molds. My understanding is they were sold this week!

Steve Brodie bought Pacific Seacraft at auction on Tuesday. He is moving the company to Wilmington, NC. I don't know for sure whether this included Saga, but as far as I can tell it didn't.

At the Seattle boat show last weekend, a broker was telling me someone bought a mold or two and was moving them to (Bellingham?) to start a new line. The info was a bit sketchy.

Its my understanding that Saga owned their own molds and that Pacific Seacraft was building the Saga's under contract. If that is the case Saga would simply need to find another builder.

PBPME,

Yes, before the company went into bankruptcy, it sold off the mould and tooling for the Dana 24. An outfit in the Seattle area plans to build the Dana. The rest of the PSC boats got sold at the bankruptcy auction. Jeff H is probably right about the Saga boats -- seems to make sense. But info on the PSC website indicated that the companies had merged, so there has been some speculation about the nature of the arrangement and the disposition of the Saga assets.

I don't remember seeing the SAGA molds listed for auction, only the PSC molds and one Ericsson.

Dictated, but not read.

Just bumping this old thread to add my $.02, whilst trying to keep info current. It would appear that Saga (Brand) and Saga tooling/molds have been purchased by J.J. Taylor & Sons Ltd.

Not much of a website, but here's the link. (Not allowed to post it yet, it would seem) jjtayloryachts . com/

Take out the spaces

This happened in Aug, 2008. Not sure where things stand currently.

I realize this is an old thread, but for anyone interested in the information, Pacific Seacraft (now in Washington, NC) does not have the Saga molds. As Kyle said, the website for Saga indicates that the company was bought by JJ Taylor & Sons as of August 2008.

The last Saga built by Pacific Seacraft, a 2007 Saga 409, was never launched or titled and is for sale by Carolina Wind in Washington, NC.
