41 River small41 Sundeck small

Mariner Yachts has announced the launch of two new trawler designs – the 41 River and the 41 Sundeck. These boats feature luxurious staterooms fore and aft, a generously-sized saloon, and an expansive raised aft deck. They differ in their flybridge configurations. As with all Mariner Seville-series yachts, these boats will be built with well-crafted teak and holly interiors, sturdy hull and superstructure construction, and many thoughtful features throughout.

The first of the new models built, a 41 River is in final testing in preparation for delivery to a customer, and photos of the boat will be available soon. These yachts are both being introduced at an attractive base price for 2010 models of $357,500, including delivery and prep.

2009 Trawler Fest Anacortes

TrawlerFestThe Waterline Boats crew enjoyed a successful TrawlerFest in beautiful Anacortes. After getting thoroughly soaked on arrival day we appreciated the sunny weather that predominated during the show. The Bracewell Pacesetter 540 received several “best in show” comments from guests and the Mariner 37 Pilothouse Trawler hosted many repeat visitors and two sea trials before returning to our Lake Union office. We had a lot of interest in our Boatshed International Yacht Brokerage system, which continues to grow with over 70 offices worldwide and is proving itself to be the best process for listing and selling a used boat!

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.
