Duck Dodge Celebrates Seattle Summers, Boaters, and Ducks!

June 7, 2017

Duck Dodge
A true sign of summer in Seattle – Duck Dodge is a frenzy of a sailboat race.

While others rely on groundhogs to tell when winter mercifully ends, Seattle boaters know that summer is finally here when a sailboat apologizes to a duck. Every Tuesday Seattle sailers decorate their sailboats and dress in costumes according to a weekly theme. Racers head to Lake Union to compete for a coveted duck-shaped decal. The goal: bragging rights and a lot of fun.

Duck Dodge
Duck Dodge is as much a party as it is a race. It’s an annual Seattle tradition with more than four decades of history. The rules for the racers are simple: “Never make a duck change its course” and “No hitting each other”.

The Race Committee, all passionate volunteers, organize the event. They run 4 starts for “Fast Boats”, “Half-fast Boats”, “Slow Cruising Boats”, and “Dinghy (small) Boats”. The racers zigzag around marks on Lake Union vying for Gold, Silver, or Bronze Duck award decals. Those who win affix the trophy decals on their sailboat mast or boom for some serious sea cred. The race is a spectacle that’s a blast to both see and be a part of.

Following the race, boats gather and tie up alongside each other to enjoy the company, greet newcomers, and relax under summer evening sunshine.

More than anything else, Duck Dodge is a fun, welcoming, and close-knit community of local boat nuts. Every week they leave their stress at the docks and celebrate beautiful Seattle summer evenings with friends and fellow boaters.

Duck Dodge runs May through September, with a Tuesday always just around the corner… So, get in your boat, out on Lake Union and remember to respect the ducks!

Waterline Boats Featured Boat – 55 Symbol Motoryacht

April 11, 2017

WLB-Featured-Boat-55-Symbol

Waterline Boats Featured Boat is a 55 Symbol Pilothouse Motoryacht!

This 1995 three stateroom pilothouse is a stabilized, twin diesel motoryacht. And making this sexy 55 Symbol Pilothouse even more attractive is her recent price reduction! Also noteworthy are the below comments.

Broker’s Comments:
This Symbol 55 Pilothouse represents an attractive design for good reasons — three staterooms, wide walkaround side decks, a roomy and comfortable salon, all the handling benefits of a pilothouse, and a commanding and spacious flybridge.

Very low hours and well-equipped with stabilizers, generator, air conditioning, diesel furnace, satellite TV, new Garmin radar and MFDs, and a nearly-new AB dinghy with less than 30 hours on its 30 hp Honda outboard. She has been well-cared-for and is in very nice condition.

This is an attractive and substantial boat that continues to look very contemporary inside and out.

But most of all, we know you will want to view the full specifications, 122 photos, video and 360 Virtual Tours of the 55 Symbol. All you have to do is click> 55 Symbol Pilothouse Motoryacht

Featured Boat – Tollycraft 48 CPMY!

November 27, 2013

2013-Featured-Boat-Tollycraft-48-CPMY-The Tollycraft 48 Cockpit Motor Yacht is a desirable model and known for its top-quality design and construction. Waterline Boats / Boatshed Seattle recently added a 1985 Tollycraft to our inventory!

Come on…picture yourself stepping aboard for a peek at some of the highlights of this Tollycraft 48 CPMY….

  • The salon entries are port and starboard doors on the main deck and an aft entry from the sundeck. The salon is bright and open with an L-shaped convertible sectional, a custom high/low coffee and dining table, a practical breakfast bar, built-in entertainment system and a leather helm chair that doubles for salon seating.
  • The galley is flooded with natural light from the windshield above. There’s no feeling of being in a cave, or separation from your guests with the open view to the salon. Yet the mess you make in the U-shaped galley is out of sight. A comfortable booth dinette, perfect for a casual lunch with the crew when not entertaining is located just across from the galley to starboard.
  • Forward of the galley is the guest V-berth stateroom and en-suite head.
  • The master stateroom is three steps down aft of the salon, providing plenty of separation from the guest stateroom which makes for much more civilized cruising. A centerline queen berth keeps the task of making the bed easy. Other amenities include an overhead hatch, hanging lockers, two night stands, storage drawers, a vanity and en-suite head with a large separate shower.
  • Take just a couple of steps up from the sundeck to the fully enclosed canvas-and-isinglass flybridge, perfect for protected piloting and also an additional room for social gatherings or for sipping a beverage while enjoying the sunset or a hardy cup of coffee while watching the sunrise.

If you can see yourself on this fantastic motor yacht, experiencing the boating lifestyle  you need to click on the link to learn more, view over 70 large format photos, and a brief video. Tollycraft 48 CPMY

New To Inventory – Camano 31 Trawler Gnome

November 21, 2013

Gnome-blogThis 2003 Camano 31 is one of few built without a flybridge – and identified as a “Gnome”.
Gnomes, as everyone knows, guard treasure, and this low-profile beauty is a hoard of value.

Some customizations include:
Electric pot puller
Rod and tackle storage
Stidd helm seat
New cork interior flooring
Custom stainless steel low profile radar arch
Stainless steel topside rails to tie down crab/shrimp pots, kayaks, or…

Gnome-blog-2The Camano 31 has rightly earned the reputation of being well-designed and carefully built. The result is a sturdy, maneuverable, economical and capable vessel. And there are very few boats of this size that offer such a roomy, bright interior space and 360° visibility.

Click on the Gnome icon link  (above) to view the 80 extra photos and video of this special Gnome. This 2003 Camano 31 is at our Waterline Boats docks on Lake Union in Seattle. Give Scott a call to arrange your personal viewing of this impressive, nicely-equipped, low hours, unique Gnome. 206 915 0276
