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

Good News For Helmsman & Hyundai

March 8, 2017

Good-News-Hyundai-BlogGood news for those who are considering the marvelous new Helmsman Trawlers 31 Sedan but have perhaps wondered about the standard engine selection, which may be unfamiliar, and service center availability.….

One of the compelling features of the 31 Sedan (based upon the popular and capable Camano 31 and substantially modernized) is her engine — a Hyundai Seasall V-6 diesel. For a long time Hyundai marine engines have been trusted in Europe and around the Pacific Rim for advanced engineering, great performance and exceptional reliability. Now the Seasall line is available in the U.S. and is perfectly matched with the Helmsman Trawler 31 Sedan.

Seasall is designed for easy maintenance, a longer life, and built to meet future Tier IV EPA requirements. And important to the appeal of the 31 Sedan is that the Seasall engine offers a demonstrably quieter and smoother ride.

Service for this new engine? Certified dealers for the Hyundai Seasall have been popping up all over the East Coast and West Coast. The newest authorized Northwest dealer and service agent for the Hyundai Seasall line is Cook Engine in Portland, Oregon. Cook Engine joins other Northwest service agents including Coastal Marine Engine of Seattle.

What does this mean for you? A choice of U.S. Hyundai Seasall dealers with solid reputations means professional support is always close at hand. It’s just one more reason to kick-off boating season with the Helmsman Trawler 31 Sedan.

Helmsman Trawlers Building First 31 Sedan with John Deere Engine

November 25, 2016

31-se-john-deere-2Waterline Boats received an order for a Helmsman Trawlers from a Canadian customer to build a 31 Sedan that will be the first to use a John Deere engine. This customer is an exceptionally knowledgeable boater, with many boats under his current and prior ownership, and prefers to operate at displacement speeds with a lower RPM engine. Consequently we’re installing a 4045TFM85 engine rated at 125 horsepower at 2500 rpm. This will provide reliable and long-lived propulsion with a top speed in the range of 9 knots and a cruising speed of 7 to 8 knots. The 31 Sedan, based upon the well-known and capable Camano 31 hull, is designed to operate well at higher semi-displacement speeds but its hull is very well-suited to displacement operation also. It has a substantial long keel with skeg-hung rudder, a low center of gravity, high freeboard, tough construction, and a slightly rounded transom to enhance tracking in following seas. This will be an interesting power combination and will appeal to others who want a compact, reliable yacht-quality trawler that is NOT a planing boat in disguise. 

Talk with us about our range of propulsion options for the 31 Sedan and look for further information as this boat is delivered and tested.
