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

Featured Boat – Tollycraft 48 CPMY!

The Tollycraft 48 Cockpit Motor Yacht is a desirable model and known for its top-quality design and construction. Waterline Boats / Boatshed Seattle recently added a 1985 Tollycraft to our inventory!

Come on…picture yourself stepping aboard for a peek at some of the highlights of this Tollycraft 48 CPMY….

  • The salon entries are port and starboard doors on the main deck and an aft entry from the sundeck. The salon is bright and open with an L-shaped convertible sectional, a custom high/low coffee and dining table, a practical breakfast bar, built-in entertainment system and a leather helm chair that doubles for salon seating.
  • The galley is flooded with natural light from the windshield above. There’s no feeling of being in a cave, or separation from your guests with the open view to the salon. Yet the mess you make in the U-shaped galley is out of sight. A comfortable booth dinette, perfect for a casual lunch with the crew when not entertaining is located just across from the galley to starboard.
  • Forward of the galley is the guest V-berth stateroom and en-suite head.
  • The master stateroom is three steps down aft of the salon, providing plenty of separation from the guest stateroom which makes for much more civilized cruising. A centerline queen berth keeps the task of making the bed easy. Other amenities include an overhead hatch, hanging lockers, two night stands, storage drawers, a vanity and en-suite head with a large separate shower.
  • Take just a couple of steps up from the sundeck to the fully enclosed canvas-and-isinglass flybridge, perfect for protected piloting and also an additional room for social gatherings or for sipping a beverage while enjoying the sunset or a hardy cup of coffee while watching the sunrise.
