Thirty-One-Derful Feet

Lisa and I enjoyed the opportunity for a little Pacific Northwest cruising aboard our new Helmsman Trawlers 31 Camano while taking her to PassageMaker’s TrawlerFest in Anacortes. This gem is the latest (and the most compact) addition to the line of Helmsman Trawlers. We’ve been working for several years on this project to update and substantially redesign the venerable Camano 31 and were glad for some sea time to “test cruise” the finished product.

What a fine little yacht this is.

We knew it would handle well and feel solid on the water — the original highly-regarded Camano hull is unchanged — and it pleased us with its surefootedness and performance. Whether running at 7 or 9 or 13 knots this boat was solid. The bow stayed down for great lower-helm visibility at all speeds, and she tracked and handled waves from all directions confidently.

As for living aboard we admittedly felt a bit self-satisfied with our interior redesign. The stateroom was nothing short of luxurious and spacious. The separate head and shower compartments are amenities associated with much larger yachts. The salon with its up galley and built-in helm and companion seating was wonderfully functional and comfortable, especially while underway. And as with all of our Helmsman Trawlers we admired the construction quality, the fine teak and varnish interior, and the tight craftsmanship so much in evidence.

Things that were even better than we expected?

  • Storage — the yard did such a great job fitting storage drawers, cabinets and cubbies into places we hadn’t anticipated that there will be no lack of storage for an extended cruise. The hanging locker in the master stateroom is really a “wow” for a boat this size. Usually the first thing to be jettisoned in the design of smaller boats, we’re glad to say that storage has increased signficantly with this redesign from the original Camano 31.
  • The engine — the Hyundai Seasall V-6 diesel was amazingly smooth and quiet. Operation, even at higher speeds, is truly pleasant.

Lisa and I are fortunate to spend a lot of time aboard quality yachts — mostly much larger than this Helmsman Trawlers 31 Camano. We can honestly say that thanks to yacht-quality construction, time-tested hull design, a completely new interior design, and the latest in well-engineered propulsion we felt like we compromised nothing while on our short cruise. This is an incredible amount of boat in a compact size, and — let’s face it — FUN is most accessible when you’re not worrying about complex systems and costs and fuel consumption and maintenance and finding large-enough moorage and….

Waterline Boats at 2016 TrawlerFest!

2016-TrawlerFestWaterline Boats will be participating in the 2016 Anacortes TrawlerFest sponsored by PassageMaker — and we’ll have a new Helmsman Trawlers 31 Camano on display!

We are excited about the Helmsman Trawlers 31 Camano debuting in its first TrawlerFest and enthused to present all the updates and enhancements to a well-known design. The original Camano was highly regarded for its outstanding hull, sea-keeping abilities and economy at a range of speeds. Helmsman Trawlers has updated the lines, thoughtfully redesigned the interior, and developed a true bantam trawler yacht at a remarkable price!

Some distinctive features include a beautiful and luxurious master suite with generous (and separate!) head and shower compartments, sizable galley with plentiful storage, large fridge/freezer, bountiful lighting and visibility, and gorgeous interior craftsmanship. This is truly a yacht-quality small trawler. And there’s so much more to see … At Anacortes TrawlerFest 2016.

TrawlerFest In Water Show Dates & Times
May 19 – May 21
THU – SAT 10am – 5pm

Can’t make it to TrawlerFest and want to see this bantam trawler? No problem! The Helmsman Trawlers 31 Camano is at our Waterline Boats docks. Just give us a call and one of our agents will show you aboard.

Waterline Boats at Annapolis-Bay Bridge Boat Show!

Bay-Bridge-BS-2016Waterline Boats / Boatshed Seattle is participating in the Annapolis 2016 Bay Bridge Boat Show…

..with a 2008 Mariner 37 Seville Pilothouse.

You’ll find us on Dock C where we are displaying this beautiful blue hulled, with white topsides and shiny stainless rails vessel. This well-outfitted low hours trawler appears in excellent condition on its exterior as well as its interior and is a MUST SEE!

Once you step aboard you will see that the roomy interior design gives the feeling of being on a much larger boat than what the model number implies. The warmth and elegance of the teak and holly and the quality and craftsmanship of the joinery are sure to impress.

Our agents will be happy to point out the many unique features of the pilothouse design. The hide-away storage, great visibility from the pilothouse helm and throughout, the day head off the salon and the separate head and shower in the master stateroom just to name a few.

This boat was originally imported and sold as a Mariner Yachts International 37 Seville Pilothouse, the predecessor to the current Helmsman Trawlers® 38 Pilothouse. Our Waterline Boats agents are prepared to supply information on all the Helmsman Trawlers Models – 43 Pilothouse – 38 Pilothouse – 37 Sedan – 31 Camano.


To preview (full specs and 112 photos), the 2008 Mariner 37 click> 2008 Pilothouse

Compare this boat to a Nordic Tug 37 or 39, or to an American Tug 34, 365 or 395. You’ll find that the Helmsman Trawlers is roomier, has a more finely-crafted interior, and is built to an impressive standard.

Dates – Friday, April 15, 2016 – Sunday, April 17, 2016.
