Pacesetter 540 Delivery Day

Friday Harbor Customs Dock

Friday Harbor Customs Dock


March 26 was delivery day for a beautiful new Pacesetter 540, built by Bracewell Boatworks Ltd. WaterLine Boats will be proud to display and demonstrate this extraordinary yacht at its docks on Lake Union. The delivery from Bracewell’s yard in Richmond, B.C. to Seattle provided a spectacular opportunity to test the boat and enjoy its ride. Is this really work? Averaging 19 knots through a variety of sea conditions the Pacesetter showed its stuff – quiet, comfortable, efficient, and with excellent tracking and control. She demonstrated remarkable fuel economy at ten knots, and was admired by many as she smoothly negotiated the Ballard Locks under the command of Mick Reid, Bracewell’s delivery captain.

Ten days – nothin’ but boats!

Waterline Boats and Boatshed Seattle had a great ten days at the Seattle Boat Show talking about boats at its Lake Union display and at Qwest Field. Many visitors boarded our Mariner 37 Pilothouse Trawler on display, and we had to return to the printer several times for more literature on the boat. At Qwest Field we fine-tuned our process for quickly explaining that Boatshed doesn’t build sheds. Once that message was understood people were almost always interested to stop and learn about the many advantages of listing and buying used boats through Boatshed. Demonstrating the true international character of Boatshed, we publicized Boatshed Vancouver and its listings along with Boatshed Seattle’s. Boatshed Vancouver will return the favor during the upcoming Vancouver Boat Show (February 4 – 8).Boatshed Seattle is part of the Boatshed network of International Yacht Brokers, and sells used boats and yachts in the Puget Sound region of Washington State. The Seattle Boat show, the largest annual show on the West Coast, is sponsored jointly by Northwest Marine Trades Association (NMTA) and Northwest Yacht Brokers Association (NYBA). Waterline Boats is a member of both the NMTA and the NYBA.
