Seattle-based Waterline Boats has opened up a new sales office in Port Townsend, joining this incredible community of maritime service providers.

Waterline Boats, boat brokerage and dealership for Helmsman Trawlers, has recently opened a new office in Port Townsend. The new location is already teeming with activity. Why would this office flourish so quickly – despite its out of the way location?

Perhaps maritime history has something to do with it. Port Townsend has long been a seafaring center. Back when sailing ships were the primary mode of transportation for the region, Port Townsend was the hub where these vessels met their rowboat tows to take them to their final destinations. Thus evolved a strong maritime support system that continues to this day, attracting vessels from around the Pacific Northwest for service and repairs.

The boat culture and activity in Port Townsend goes hand-in-hand with the maritime service community. From schools and busy non-profits, to races and festivals — boat fanatics have engaging opportunities year ’round. And Port Townsend has an appealing location, across Strait of Juan de Fuca from the San Juan Islands and Victoria, as well as a jumping off point for those headed farther north or offshore.

Waterline Boats is thrilled to join this incredible community and become a part of Port Townsend’s rich legacy of maritime expertise. At Waterline Boats you’ll find outstanding customer service and knowledgeable staff, working to match the right mariner with the right boat, powered by a strong local Northwest network and a robust online presence.

Waterline Boats Port Townsend is supported by the main office in Seattle and another in Everett. This system of cooperative locations helps connect people to boats, provides a good network to address marine systems issues and upgrades, ensures help is always available, and provides extensive display moorage around the Sound. Between these three locations, Waterline Boats has 10 experienced brokers ready to serve mariners.

Waterline Boats Port Townsend is also a sales office and dealership for Helmsman Trawlers – rugged, safe, and reliable semi-custom trawler yachts ranging in size from 31 ft to 46 feet. Visit or contact any of Waterline’s offices to learn about these finely crafted motor yachts.

Waterline Boats Port Townsend is located near the Boathaven Boat Ramp at 2730 Washington St. Suite C – Port Townsend, WA or call 564-218-5201.
