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

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.

California Cruising Couple Creatively Conceives Commodious Customizations

December 20, 2016

38e-torelli-photoJohn and Mary Torelli (and Sailor Blue) are pictured with their new Helmsman Trawlers 38E Pilothouse Trawler.

John and Mary are experienced boaters having owned three Nordhavns prior to their Helmsman and authoring “Life is a Journey Why Not Live It Aboard a Trawler?” (available from Amazon!). John and Mary contributed fundamentally and significantly to many of the design features that distinguish the 38E from its predecessor, and also customized their boat’s interior to meet their desire for a very large, open main salon.

John and Mary are mooring their boat at the Sunroad Marina on Harbor Island in San Diego. They plan to cruise to Santa Catalina Island, Baja Mexico, and eventually complete the Great Loop in their Helmsman 38E.

Welcome to the Helmsman Trawlers family!

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.
