Newsworthy – Bracewell 41

June 12, 2017

Bracewell-41-Newsworthy
As close watchers of the Camano line will know, Camano Yachts Ltd. built seven original Camano 41s, a line extension following years of building the popular Camano 31s. Bracewell Marine Group of Richmond BC acquired the tooling when Camano Yachts Ltd. ceased operations, and then built two Bracewell 41s in Richmond. These were fundamentally the same design, with the same hull as the original Camano 41s, but with a two-stateroom configuration and a number of other layout and aesthetic changes. Over the course of several years Lance Bracewell has been working with a group to establish a new yard near Shanghai named Bracewell Shanghai Yachts Co. Ltd. This yard is also building the Bracewell 54 Motoryacht and the new line of Commanders.

The Camano 41 tooling was shipped to Shanghai and the yard recently completed the first of the new model Bracewell 41. This boat was offloaded from a container ship at the Port of Seattle a few weeks ago, started, and run on its own power to our facility on Seattle’s Lake Union. We will be preparing complete information including test data, photos and video in upcoming weeks.

The base boat is equipped with a Cummins QSB6.7 480 hp engine, and based upon experience with the prior models we expect that this boat will cruise easily up to 16 or 17 knots.

We’ve always liked this design — it feels very stable on the water and handles extremely well. The large saloon with windows all around is open, well-lit and unique. The Bob Warman keelform hull shape is as meritorious now as it was when he designed it for the Camano 31s. And Lance Bracewell has brought strong personal oversight to the project, spending a great deal of time at the yard during the construction. So we’re pleased to be able to report that this model is in production again!

And not only is it back in production…but it is at our Waterline Boats display docks! Come on by and see this outstanding performance trawler for yourself. We are here Monday through Friday 10am – 5pm and Saturday 10am – 4pm or by appointment. Give us a call to make yours! 206 282 0110

Camano Joins Helmsman Line…

February 21, 2014

HLMN-31-Camano-WLBThe highly-regarded Camano 31 has joined the Helmsman Trawlers line and is now available for order. 270 of these popular boats have been built by prior manufacturers, and with this thorough revamp of the Camano design they offer more than ever before.

Camanos have been known for their spacious interior, exceptional all-around visibility, large flybridge, and sturdy, purposeful construction. And a unique hull shape provided efficient performance at any speed up to 18 knots with remarkable stability underway. Owners of earlier Camanos rave about performance and capability that exceeds anything else of this size and type.

Helmsman Trawlers has acquired the Camano name and all the tooling which has been moved to the Helmsman Trawlers yard. While the venerable hullform will remain the same, the Camano design has been extensively updated with a new galley-up interior, including a pedestal berth forward, a separate shower compartment, a U-shaped dinette, and greater headroom in the salon. Exterior features include contemporary lines for the windows and handrails, the addition of a radar arch, choice of colors, and an optional fiberglass cockpit cover. System changes include a larger holding tank and a Hyundai SeasAll engine — a smooth-running, efficient V6 250 hp powerplant.

Helmsman Trawlers has gathered experience and feedback from past and present owners in making its changes. These fine boats will be built with the same high level of craftsmanship and excellent materials and equipment that distinguish the other Helmsman Trawler models.
