Helmsman Trawlers Makes History!


A new 2017 Helmsman Trawlers 38E Pilothouse entered the records books last week as cargo aboard the massive OOCL FRANCE container ship when it was delivered to Charleston, South Carolina.

As reported by the Charleston Regional Business Journal on June 7, 2017:

…“The OOCL FRANCE was not only the largest containership to have called on Charleston, but also the largest in its class to sail through the Panama Canal to date.”

The vessel OOCL FRANCE was built in 2013 and is 1202 feet in over all length and boasts a 158 foot beam. A recent enlargement of the Panama Canal now allows for cargo ships of this massive size. This class of ship, referred to as a neo-PANAMAX vessel, has a capacity to carry between 11,000 and 14,000 cargo boxes on one excursion.

Crane operators and stevedores at the Port of Charleston moved thousands of shipping containers on and off the ship at the Wando Welch Terminal in Mt Pleasant, South Carolina during its one-day visit. And one yacht! Specifically a Helmsman Trawlers 38E Pilothouse — the first of this model on the east coast. The boat was received in excellent condition, started and run on its own power after a month at sea. Within five days it was commissioned, tested, demonstrated and delivered to its Charleston-based owners.

Are you considering Nordic Tugs, American Tugs, or Beneteau Swift Trawler? Helmsman Trawlers invites direct comparison for quality, price and long-lasting value.

Waterline Boats ~broker spotlight | Randy Hacker

wlb-broker-spotlight-rh

Born in Indiana and raised in Texas, Randy Hacker got his love of boating from his family. Specifically his father, who loved to fish, and who often took Randy with him. While Randy doesn’t consider himself the most avid of fishermen, his memory of being on boats as a child influenced his decision to get into the boating business later in life. Randy bought his first boat, a 14’ runabout, at the age of 17.

rh

“When you’re at that age the first things you want are a boat and a car. We primarily water-skied and we did a little bit of over night camping, which was a lot of fun. That’s what got me into the brokerage business – the great memories that come from boating with the family.”

Before becoming a broker Randy had a long career in the consumer electronics industry. This career eventually brought him to Seattle. Randy loved Seattle because it was (and still is) a city that embraces and is embraced by boaters. After decades in the corporate world Randy was ready for a change.

“I just wanted to do something that was more fun and that gave me the ability to help people enjoy the boating experience — because this the BEST area to enjoy boating.”

Randy started his brokerage career in Seattle in 1999. He jumped right in, working with a company that builds large boats (65’-82’) and visiting their factory in Taiwan many times. Randy found that he enjoyed the boat business.

In 2011, the Northwest Yacht Brokers Association referred Randy to Scott and Lisa Helker of Waterline Boats. Randy admired their business values, how they treated their customers and employees, and what they were doing with the new Helmsman Trawlers line. He has worked for Waterline Boats ever since.

Currently Randy owns a small sailboat and enjoys whatever time he can spend on his boat.

“That’s probably one of the most therapeutic things you can do. Boats always love and reciprocate your attention. Some people like to fly planes, some people like to fish, some people like to hang around the bar. I like hanging around boats.”

If you’re thinking you could use a little boat therapy talk with Randy. You can contact him at:

Waterline Boats ~broker spotlight | Roger Drill

wlb-broker-spotlight-rd

For Roger Drill, the boat business is a life-long calling. His father got into the boating business in Duluth, Minnesota the year Roger was born. Small boats, row boats, and outboards were a daily part of his childhood as he grew up on Lake Superior. He bought his first boat at just 12 years old and by 14 he was hooked on racing sailboats. The passion for racing continued throughout his life.

wlb-2400-roger

“Racing’s a different world. It’s concentration. It’s decision making. A little bit of danger possibly.”

After many years working with his father, he continued to work and build his reputation as one of the premiere boat dealers of the Midwest. Roger then moved to Colorado to get involved in the mortgage banking business., and raced sailboats both in the lakes of Colorado and in races all over the country. After nine years in Colorado Roger knew that he needed to get back to big water. After spending some exploratory time in sailing around Washington he moved to Seattle.

Once he was in Washington Roger made the shift from selling to building boats – Nordic Tugs and later Pacific Trawlers. Later he moved into selling imported trawlers. Among his first customers for one of these boats were Scott and Lisa Helker who would themselves get involved in the boat sales and importing business as Waterline Boats, and now Roger works for them as a broker.

Today Roger sails an Ericson 29 and lives aboard a power cruiser. He’s planning trips to New Zealand, Thailand, and Croatia. For now, Roger’s happy with local destinations.

“I enjoy short sails into the islands around the area. Going to Poulsbo and crabbing. Just going out on Lake Union or Lake Washington and sailing. Being on board. Sometimes just sitting at the dock is good.”

A lifetime in the boat business in service, sales and construction make Roger tremendously knowledgeable. If you want to know the history of the boat business, the mechanics of a sound boat, or if you want to see a good sailboat race on a Tuesday evening, Roger’s the man to see. And if you’re looking to sell or buy a boat Roger can definitely help with that too.
