An impressive parade of historic ships and vessels passed through the Ballard Locks yesterday in celebration of the Hiram M Chittenden Ballard Locks’ 100th birthday.

The beautiful schooner Adventuress had the honor to lead more than 40 historic vessels of various types and sizes, including the Virginia Five, down the ship canal and on to Lake Union.

The Ballard Locks are an essential part of Seattle – connecting Puget Sound to Lake Union and Lake Washington. Both commercial and recreational boats have benefited daily since it first opened in July 1917.

Helmsman Trawlers Makes History!


A new 2017 Helmsman Trawlers 38E Pilothouse entered the records books last week as cargo aboard the massive OOCL FRANCE container ship when it was delivered to Charleston, South Carolina.

As reported by the Charleston Regional Business Journal on June 7, 2017:

…“The OOCL FRANCE was not only the largest containership to have called on Charleston, but also the largest in its class to sail through the Panama Canal to date.”

The vessel OOCL FRANCE was built in 2013 and is 1202 feet in over all length and boasts a 158 foot beam. A recent enlargement of the Panama Canal now allows for cargo ships of this massive size. This class of ship, referred to as a neo-PANAMAX vessel, has a capacity to carry between 11,000 and 14,000 cargo boxes on one excursion.

Crane operators and stevedores at the Port of Charleston moved thousands of shipping containers on and off the ship at the Wando Welch Terminal in Mt Pleasant, South Carolina during its one-day visit. And one yacht! Specifically a Helmsman Trawlers 38E Pilothouse — the first of this model on the east coast. The boat was received in excellent condition, started and run on its own power after a month at sea. Within five days it was commissioned, tested, demonstrated and delivered to its Charleston-based owners.

Newsworthy – Bracewell 41

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
