Opening Day – Seattle’s Official First Day of Boating!

May 4, 2017

Opening-Day-2017Opening Day – an event unique to Seattle is the official kick-off of Seattle’s boating season!

For many in the Pacific Northwest Opening Day means the end of a rainy Washington winter and the beginning of sunshiny days. It’s the nation’s largest regional celebration of water, spring, and the beginning of the best season for boaters.

The event starts the first Saturday in May. This year will be May 6th with “Emerald City Aahs” the theme. The celebration begins with the blast of a cannon at noon and the Grand Opening Day Boat Parade. Seattle boaters decorate their boats and participate in morning crew and sailboat races. The annual event stretches back nearly a century. Every year, thousands of boaters and boat enthusiasts head to Lake Union and Lake Washington to take part.

With the Waterline Boats Lake Union location it’s hard not getting swept up in all the activity and buzz of Opening Day. In fact, owners Scott and Lisa Helker as well as several of the Waterline Boats brokers will be out on their boats enjoying the Opening Day festivities and weekend.

Some of our buyers and sellers have purchased and sold boats with Opening Day in mind. It’s not only a fun event for boat lovers but just day one of Seattle’s official 2017 boating season.

*Are you ready for the 2017 boating season? Looking to sell your boat to upgrade or downsize? Call 206-282-0110 or email AMBER – ask her how we get more boats sold faster!

TrawlerFest Moves To Bremerton – Helmsman Trawlers Will Be There!

April 26, 2017

TrawlerFest-Bremerton

Trawler lovers and Helmsman Trawlers fans are only a couple of weeks and a ferry ride away from this year’s TrawlerFest.

After ten years in Anacortes, the Pacific Northwest TrawlerFest boat show and rendezvous moves south this year. Bremerton Marina will be hosting the well-loved event May 16-20.

Trawlerfest is a celebration of cruisers with a focus on trawler-style yachts. In the Pacific Northwest, trawlers have a passionate following because of their comfort, easy handling, unique styles and passage making capabilities. This annual event is a chance for trawler lovers to participate in seminars and step aboard the newest cruisers.

PassageMaker, a magazine devoted to boating and organizers of the event, expect 1,500 attendees, 55-70 boats, and 40-50 vendor booths.  The move to Bremerton was motivated by the urging of brokers, vendors, and builders to bring the event closer to Seattle. This will hopefully add more convenience for attendees coming from Seattle and southern Washington.


This year we’re bringing a 2017 Helmsman Trawlers 43 Pilothouse to the boat show. We’re proud to have her as a representative model of our Helmsman Trawlers line. We’re excited to see some longtime friends and colleagues. This year we know the new location will be a chance to make new friends as well. Getting together with fellow boat lovers to talk about boats is the best part of what we do.

We look forward to seeing you at TrawlerFest Bremerton 2017.

All in all, it’s about trawlers and cruising the waters of the Pacific Northwest. To learn more about the 2017 Pacific Northwest TrawlerFest click> Port of Bremerton And to learn more about the Helmsman Trawlers line click> Helmsman Trawlers

If you happen to be thinking about selling your trawler call (206-282-0110) or email AMBER  – ask her how we get more boats sold faster!

Boatshed Founder Neil Chapman Visits Waterline Boats

April 19, 2017

Neil-visits-WLB
The crew of Waterline Boats recently welcomed Boatshed Founder and Managing Director Neil Chapman for a visit. He traveled from the UK to share upcoming features and tools designed to make buying and selling boats faster.

Boatshed is the leading innovator in yacht brokerage systems worldwide. Prominent in England and Europe, they’re expanding across the U.S. with new locations in Chicago, Texas, and Annapolis. Everyday, more brokers and customers see the value of the Boatshed system.

Waterline Boats joined with Boatshed eight years ago for its brokerage operation. We recognized that Boatshed provided a globally competitive and successful platform that was more effective than other brokerages could provide. We quickly sold more boats faster. And together we’re constantly looking for ways to improve the buying and selling experience for everyone.

Always at the leading edge of innovation with Boatshed – Neil’s recent visit to Seattle was a great chance to talk about what comes next.

Some examples –
• Boatshed’s Back Catalog. Making our extensive documentation about boats we’ve listed or sold available for information. Boat lovers love boat information!
360 Virtual Tours
Machine learning that helps identify boats that are well suited to buyers.

If you’re as excited as we are about what comes next then stay tuned! We’ll be announcing new features and tools in the coming weeks and months. Until then, we’re pleased to offer the Boatshed yacht brokerage advantages to buyers and sellers alike.

*Thinking of selling your boat? Call or email AMBER at 206-282-0110 or amber@waterlineboats.com and ask how we get more boats sold faster!
