A 2018 Helmsman Trawlers 38E Pilothouse was offloaded at the Port Of Seattle.

Last week our Waterline Boats / Helmsman Trawlers offload crew and new Helmsman owners headed to the Port of Seattle for an 8am offload. Our tow boat and crew arrived to an unexpected sight...a big yellow boom around the cargo ship, a fuel barge and a refueling in progress! This pushed the 8am offload until some time after noon. Thank goodness it was a beautiful day for crew and company to drift aboard the tow boat on Elliot Bay and shoot the breeze for a few hours.

Once the ship refueling was complete the Helmsman 38E offload happened quickly and deftly. The pilothouse was lowered to the water, pulled from the slings then along side the tow boat for the offload crew to board the Helmsman to connect batteries, check systems and start the engine.

With the engine running and the new Helmsman owners now on board and at the helm at times, the 38E Pilothouse progressed through the locks then on to our Waterline Boats docks for commissioning. Electronics...canvas...dinghy...the name...among other things are all being installed per the new owners specifications.

Eager to see this 2018 Helmsman Trawlers 38E? Then give us a call and we'll get you aboard. 206-282-0110

She's an exceptional beauty...worth the trip to our Waterline Boats docks!
