NEWPORT BEACH - Granders Inc., headed by Newport Beach entrepreneur Anthony Hsieh, has acquired Sundance Marine, the Southern California dealer for Parker boats. Sundance Marine's San Diego site, across from SeaWorld on Mission Bay, will become Crow's Nest Yacht Sales' fifth location.
"The addition of Sundance to our current marine holdings is a perfect fit," Hsieh said.

The move will allow Crow's Nest customers to choose from five sportfishing boat lines: Contender, Hatteras, Parker, Tiara and Viking.

Rob Sanford, general manager and partner in Sundance, will continue in his current capacity, Hsieh said.

Sundance Marine is currently the No. 2 Parker dealer worldwide, and the top dealer in the Western U.S.

Crow's Nest Yachts-sponsored Team Bad Company, a tournament-winning sportfishing team headed by Capt. Steve Lassley, will provide boat buyers with expert input on boat rigging and will offer future fishing seminars for customers, according to the company.

Crow's Nest Yachts has been in operation for more than 30 years and has waterfront locations in Newport Beach, Mission Bay, San Diego and Seattle; along with a 3-acre off-water dealership in the Irvine Auto Center, with 11 service bays.
