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!

Waterline Boats ~broker spotlight | Bill Lynch


Waterline Boats welcomes our newest broker Bill Lynch to the crew. Covering Lower Puget Sound for Waterline Boats / Boatshed Tacoma

Waterline Boats welcomes our newest broker Bill Lynch to the crew! We’re excited to have Bill representing the Lower Puget Sound, a great boating area that he knows well.


Waterline Boats welcomes our newest broker Bill Lynch to the crew. Covering Lower Puget Sound for Waterline Boats / Boatshed Tacoma

Born and raised in Olympia Bill has a proud family history there. His Grandfather and father were members of the Fire Department and Bill was in the fire sprinkler business for more than 30 years. When they weren’t working they were out on the water. When Bill was born his father owned a trawler and Bill’s earliest memories are cruising the sound with his family. Bill took his first boating course at 14 and a few years later, bought his first boat; a 17’ Olympic outboard.

A boat is always a good reason to bring friends and family together and Bill’s backyard happens to be a premier destination for boaters.

When he’s not cruising Johnson Point or crabbing on Anderson Island he’s getting to know his neighbors at Zittel’s Marina. For Bill, helping his friends and neighbors in Olympia list and sell their boats is an exciting opportunity. It’s a chance to get to know his community and a great excuse to talk boats.

Someday Bill hopes to own or charter a nice size yacht and take his family on a long cruise to the San Juan Islands. Until then he’s excited to help his fellow Olympians realize their boating dreams.

Californian 42 Trawler In Boat Auction!


2017-Boatbid-Boat-CA42This Californian 42 Trawler is in BoatBid – an online Boat Auction offered through Waterline Boats / Boatshed Seattle.

The Californian 42 is a twin diesel, fiberglass, full-displacement hull. Listing agent Randy Hacker comments on the Californian below.

Broker’s Comments:
The Californian 42 features a semi-displacement design, a prominent bow and a long keel creating a well-tracking hull. The hull’s hard chines decrease its potential for roll, and a flattened aft section provides added lift for higher speeds. Thanks to many windows and a practical layout it is perfect for Northwest cruising. The galley up design is located along the port side of the saloon, opposite an L-shaped convertible settee. The saloon features a complete lower helm station. The master stateroom is huge and features a large private head, shower and tub arrangement. This is a popular design and a very functional vessel. Not many come to market and the owner wants offers. Call to arrange a showing and let’s see if this vessel will set you to sea.
She needs some attention however the bones appear solid! – Bring offers.

Grand Banks 32 In Boat Auction!

2017-Boatbid-Boat-Grand-Banks-32
This Grand Banks is in BoatBid – an online Boat Auction offered through Waterline Boats / Boatshed Seattle.

This Grand Banks is a single diesel, fiberglass, Semi-Displacement hull. Listing agent Gary Buck comments on the Grand Banks below.

Broker’s Comments:
A distinctive and classy small trawler in every way a Grand Banks. She’s a capable and sought-after Northwest cruiser. One of the early fiberglass 32s, this one has been lovingly cared for and kept in fresh water by her current owner for over two decades.

The seller reports the fuel tanks have been kept filled to make sure they are full during the winter months as has been his custom since purchasing the boat 25 years ago.

The teak decks on this vessel are showing signs of needing to be repaired or removed. We have a contractor’s bid to accomplish that task which we believe is very reasonable.

There’s much more information waiting for you about this GB32! We know you’ll want to view the complete specifications, 100 photos and video tour of this trawler! Just click the link.> Grand Banks 32
