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!

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.
