SAN DIEGO – Luxury entertainment systems provider Knight & Carver YachtCenter has formed Custom Technologies, a stand-alone division of the company that will serve its core customers’ desires for the latest and most advanced entertainment systems, the company reported in a recent release.
Scott MacDonald and Scott “Scooter” Pulman will provide the innovative talent and experience necessary to support Custom Technologies, which will be based in Knight & Carver’s San Diego office but will provide services on a global basis. Both MacDonald and Pulman bring extensive experience in the luxury yacht industry.
MacDonald has spent 10 years in the audio/visual information technology industry, based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

A native of Nova Scotia, he is an accomplished sailor and has spent his entire life around boats.
Pulman, who hails from New Zealand and goes by the nickname “Scooter,” brings considerable technical engineering experience from major cruise lines around the world. He also spent some 15 years with Broadway-caliber theatrical productions, serving in a variety of technical roles.
“Our interest in this business stemmed from our clients’ desire to upgrade the entertainment systems on their yachts to be commensurate with or surpass the systems they enjoy in their own private homes,” said Sampson A. Brown, president and CEO of Knight & Carver. “We learned that very few firms in yachting were equipped to address that desire. With our megayacht client base, we believe we are uniquely qualified to serve this growing demand.”
Knight & Carver YachtCenter has completed refit projects on some of the world’s largest megayachts, Each system will be totally customized and fully integrated for the maximum ease, comfort and convenience of the yacht’s owner and guests.
