March 26 was delivery day for a beautiful new Pacesetter 540, built by Bracewell Boatworks Ltd. WaterLine Boats will be proud to display and demonstrate this extraordinary yacht at its docks on Lake Union. The delivery from Bracewell’s yard in Richmond, B.C. to Seattle provided a spectacular opportunity to test the boat and enjoy its ride. Is this really work? Averaging 19 knots through a variety of sea conditions the Pacesetter showed its stuff – quiet, comfortable, efficient, and with excellent tracking and control. She demonstrated remarkable fuel economy at ten knots, and was admired by many as she smoothly negotiated the Ballard Locks under the command of Mick Reid, Bracewell’s delivery captain.
