Waterline Boats / Boatshed Featured Boat – Meridian 381 Sedan

Meridian 381 Sedan –
Waterline Boats / Boatshed Featured Boat!

2005 | 2xdiesel | 330hp | GRP Construction | Semi-Displacement | 6 berths | REDUCED

Broker’s Comments:
This vessel has very low hours, is clean and evidently well-maintained. The owner even had the engines, generator, and electronics thoroughly checked prior to listing for sale.

In addition to its two staterooms this boat has a hide-a-bed in the salon making it a comfortable six person cruising boat.

A real strong suit is the large enclosed flybridge area. There is comfortable seating for six plus another aft deck area. Access is through a deck hatch that has a fiberglass hatch cover. The stair case to the bridge has plenty of grab rails and the steps are non-skid.

Waterline Boats/Boatshed Featured Boat – Island Packet

Island Packet 32 Bluewater Cruiser – Waterline Boats/Boatshed Featured Boat!

1990 | 1xdiesel | 27hp | GRP Construction | Long Keel | 7 berths

Broker’s Comments:
Approaching this 1990 Island Packet 32, I am impressed with the maintenance and focus of the current owners’ upgrades and attention to detail. On deck, she has upgraded rigging, new genoa and halyard sheets and travellers, spare and new mainsails, genoas, and mast with tracking and roller furler. She is said to be able to be single-handed with relative ease as all running rigging runs to cockpit. Many custom upgrades include: a custom swim step, a custom stainless steel arch that supports two solar panels, antennas and the Superwind generator, and a Caribbean-style custom stainless steel bimini with cockpit cover and attaching sunshade.

Mechanical maintenance and upgrades include, but not limited to: new Yanmar engine instrumentation, new dripless shaft and cutlass bearing, new injectors, bottom paint, and zincs. The marine sanitation system has been upgraded, a new “insta-hot” hot water system is available and ready to install. The navigation and communication systems all have redundancy. Many rebuilt and new spares included. 
January 2018: Listing has been updated to include new additions and installations of 5000 w inverter with remote , dual filter/water separator, dual USB power outlet charger adapter, wireless remote anchor windlass and boat sail trim controller. This owner is sparing no cost and preparing the boat for true blue water adventures!

If you are looking for a blue water cruiser, with relative ease of handling, this Island Packet is ready to inspire you to safely venture offshore!

Symbol Yachts 55 Pilothouse – Price Reduced

This Symbol 55 Pilothouse Motoryacht is a whole lot of boat with a big price-reduction!

What makes the Symbol 55 a whole lot of boat? It’s attractive design for one!

Let’s start with the interior…
This motoryacht is a three stateroom model, with two heads and a commanding centerline helm in the pilothouse. The galley is U-shaped with plenty of counter space and nice appointments including a house sized fridge! The salon includes an entertainment cabinet, is well-lit, very comfortable and roomy. Yet there are still nice sized walk-around decks!

That leads to the exterior…
The cockpit is quite sizeable, and able to accomodate a couple of deck lounge chairs easily. The cockpit includes a starboard transom door that provides easy access to the substantial swim deck.

Now let’s go topside…
Just a couple steps up port or starboard gives you access to the walk-around decks. Access to the flybridge is on the starboard side of the cockpit. This is where you will find a fully covered and enclosed area with a centerline helm, wet bar, refrigerator and bench seating.

More enticements…
This Symbol 55 Pilothouse Motoryacht has very low hours and well-equipped with stabilizers, generator, air conditioning, diesel furnace, satellite TV, and newer Garmin radar and MFDs. She has been well-cared-for and is in very nice condition.

What else makes the Symbol 55 a whole lot of boat? It’s attractive price!
Especially with the recent price-reduction of this cruise ready, live-aboard motoryacht.

Helmsman 2016 38 Pilothouse Offload

Lee-38-Arrival-photo-1
It is exciting every time to approach the massive Cosco cargo ship at the Port of Seattle and search for the location of the most important cargo on board. But this time was different – a search wasn’t necessary at all. The Waterline Boats delivery crew and new owner had no difficulty spotting the Helmsman Trawlers 38 Pilothouse grandly perched at the head of the ship.

We were all up bright and early Monday morning boarding our reliable and experienced tow boat. Not just ready, but enthusiastic to assist with the offload of another Helmsman Trawlers. Each offload experience is different from the last and this time the prestigious location dictated our special cargo to be offloaded first. Not the usual hurry up and wait scenario we’re used to…what a great start!

Lee and Sally Shobe ordered their new construction 38 Pilothouse last fall – we were happy that Lee could participate in this offload event especially on such a beautiful May morning.

It was an impressive and successful delivery – everything went smoothly. This one starting with a ship to shore offload of the 38 Pilothouse for inspection and placement of the slings under the hull. Once approved and ready the vessel was hoisted up off shore, traveled back over the cargo ship and slowly and gently lowered into Elliot Bay. Scott turned the helm over and secured a life jacket while Roger, now at the helm maneuvered the tow boat toward the harnessed vessel. Scott carefully stepped off the tow boat and boarded the Helmsman, attached a tow line and soon both he and the boat were pulled free from the slings. Once clear from the Cosco ship, ferry lanes, an incoming cruise ship and an outgoing working tug our crew pulled the 38 in toward our tow boat and tied it along side. Gear and crew were transferred to the Pilothouse, systems checked, fuel was added, the engine started and Lee gave a confirming thumbs up! Now it’s through the locks and on to our Waterline Boats docks!
