Paul Burbach – Boatshed USA | Boatshed Annapolis Broker

Paul Burbach - Boatshed Annapolis Agent | Boatshed USA
Paul Burbach, broker for Boatshed Annapolis and our latest addition to the Boatshed USA expansion, has 20 years of experience in the boat brokerage business.

Paul was born in Ohio just north of Youngstown into a family of non-boaters, so his passion for boats developed later in life. He worked in the retail business and later the wholesale electronics business which brought him to Washington DC. Paul was introduced to boating on the Potomac River.

Once retired, he moved to the Chesapeake Bay, a beautiful area with a large boating community. It was on the Chesapeake in 1978 where his boating career began – delivering boats up and down the coast.

While some boaters only know sail or power, Paul has owned and cruised both. His first boat was a 21’ sailboat. He’d owned sailboats (increasingly bigger) for years. Then an interest in fishing and getting “further out” on the weekends moved him to owning powerboats.

Paul became a boat broker in 1997. He’s worked with Scott and Lisa Helker of Waterline Boats for several years as an East Coast representative for their Helmsman Trawlers line. His experience in boating and local knowledge of the East Coast boating community and destinations has earned Paul a solid reputation among East Coast buyers and sellers.

Paul enjoys boating with friends and exploring the Chesapeake Bay. According to him, weekends at anchor in the remote locations around Annapolis are among the best ways to enjoy the area. Today, he is happy cruising and helping others find their favorite boating experiences.

So if you’re seeking to find your own favorite boating experience give Paul a call. He’ll be more than happy to help you find the perfect boat for you, whether it be power or sail!

TrawlerFest Moves To Bremerton – Helmsman Trawlers Will Be There!

Trawler lovers and Helmsman Trawlers fans are only a couple of weeks and a ferry ride away from this year’s TrawlerFest.

After ten years in Anacortes, the Pacific Northwest TrawlerFest boat show and rendezvous moves south this year. Bremerton Marina will be hosting the well-loved event May 16-20.

Trawlerfest is a celebration of cruisers with a focus on trawler-style yachts. In the Pacific Northwest, trawlers have a passionate following because of their comfort, easy handling, unique styles and passage making capabilities. This annual event is a chance for trawler lovers to participate in seminars and step aboard the newest cruisers. 

PassageMaker, a magazine devoted to boating and organizers of the event, expect 1,500 attendees, 55-70 boats, and 40-50 vendor booths.  The move to Bremerton was motivated by the urging of brokers, vendors, and builders to bring the event closer to Seattle. This will hopefully add more convenience for attendees coming from Seattle and southern Washington.

This year we’re bringing a 2017 Helmsman Trawlers 43 Pilothouse to the boat show. We’re proud to have her as a representative model of our Helmsman Trawlers line. We’re excited to see some longtime friends and colleagues. This year we know the new location will be a chance to make new friends as well. Getting together with fellow boat lovers to talk about boats is the best part of what we do. 

We look forward to seeing you at TrawlerFest Bremerton 2017.

All in all, it’s about trawlers and cruising the waters of the Pacific Northwest. To learn more about the 2017 Pacific Northwest TrawlerFest click> Port of Bremerton And to learn more about the Helmsman Trawlers line click> Helmsman Trawlers

Good News For Helmsman & Hyundai

Good-News-Hyundai-BlogGood news for those who are considering the marvelous new Helmsman Trawlers 31 Sedan but have perhaps wondered about the standard engine selection, which may be unfamiliar, and service center availability.….

One of the compelling features of the 31 Sedan (based upon the popular and capable Camano 31 and substantially modernized) is her engine — a Hyundai Seasall V-6 diesel. For a long time Hyundai marine engines have been trusted in Europe and around the Pacific Rim for advanced engineering, great performance and exceptional reliability. Now the Seasall line is available in the U.S. and is perfectly matched with the Helmsman Trawler 31 Sedan.

Seasall is designed for easy maintenance, a longer life, and built to meet future Tier IV EPA requirements. And important to the appeal of the 31 Sedan is that the Seasall engine offers a demonstrably quieter and smoother ride.

Service for this new engine? Certified dealers for the Hyundai Seasall have been popping up all over the East Coast and West Coast. The newest authorized Northwest dealer and service agent for the Hyundai Seasall line is Cook Engine in Portland, Oregon. Cook Engine joins other Northwest service agents including Coastal Marine Engine of Seattle.

What does this mean for you? A choice of U.S. Hyundai Seasall dealers with solid reputations means professional support is always close at hand. It’s just one more reason to kick-off boating season with the Helmsman Trawler 31 Sedan.
