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

Great Things Happening In 2017!

bracewell-41-2017

The Bracewell 41 arriving to our Waterline Boats Docks this spring is one of those things!

The Bracewell 41 Performance Trawler, previously built by Bracewell Marine Group in Richmond, BC, and itself derived from the venerable Camano 41 is back in production. Manufacturing is in a new shipyard near Shanghai under the Bracewell Shanghai Yacht Company, Ltd. This Chinese-Canadian venture is building several other Bracewell models including the 540 Motoryacht and the extensively redesigned Commander 26 and Commander 34.

The Bracewell 41 is a beautiful two cabin trawler constructed to the highest standards of quality and craftsmanship. It is based on the unique Bob Warman-designed “keelform” hull that is known for seaworthy performance and ability to cruise comfortably and efficiently from 8 to 16+ knots.
