Helmsman Trawlers at PassageMaker Bay Bridge TrawlerFest!

Yes that’s right…Helmsman Trawlers is at TrawlerFest Bay Bridge, Maryland – displaying a 2018 38E Pilothouse.

Well established on the West Coast of the United States, Helmsman Trawlers is excited to introduce our finely crafted, economical single-engine cruisers to the East Coast. Built to exacting standards Helmsman Trawlers are offered in the practical size range of 43 to 31 feet. Helmsman Trawlers

The popular 38 Pilothouse is unique for the “low rise” pilothouse. The pilothouse offers exceptional visibility, maintains open communication with the salon, and is a roomy living area underway or while in port.

The main salon of the 38 Pilothouse is expansive, comfortable, and richly nautical. It is designed for those who want to cruise economically and enjoy the spacious feeling of a much larger boat while still fitting into a 40 foot slip.

But words and pictures just can’t portray the distinction in quality and craftsmanship. You really need to step aboard and SEE for yourself. And now you can on the West and East Coasts!

Come see us at TrawlerFest Bay Bridge and step aboard our
2018 38E Helmsman Trawlers.

TrawlerFest Moves to Bremerton – Helmsman Trawlers Will Be There!

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, their unique styles and their 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.

Making the Decision

It’s always interesting to peek into the decision-making process behind a boat purchase. Different buyers have different criteria, which explains the wide variety of boats for sale. Seldom have we seen a selection made with such thought and deliberate care as that made by Fred and Stephanie Kaufhold. Fred retired as an officer in the US Navy, and then his time on the water began in earnest. Fred and Stephanie purchased a world-cruising sailboat in England and then sailed and lived aboard for 25 years, finally arriving in the Pacific Northwest. Enroute they’ve worked as delivery captain and crew for countless yachts of all types up and down the US east coast. So it can fairly be said that they know their way around boats.

In thinking about their desire to continue boating as they age Fred and Stephanie defined their ideal “Geriatric Trawler”. It would be:

  • 34-38 foot sedan or pilothouse trawler because they wanted to downsize from their large sailboat and because they wanted big windows and a relatively shallow draft
  • Less than 10 years old for less major maintenance and to have more recent electronics
  • If a pilothouse (with its primary advantage of access doors port and starboard) then full walk-around decks and all around visibility from the pilothouse were important
  • If a sedan (with its primary advantage of full walk-around decks, high bulwarks and covered side decks) then easy access from the dock would be important
  • If there were a flybridge (optional) it would have to be accessed safely — no vertical ladder. And it would not have a full enclosure to reduce windage and maintenance
  • Single stateroom to provide more room in a smaller boat
  • No exterior brightwork for less maintenance
  • Ample swim step for easy access and dinghy deployment
  • Single engine propulsion (with bow thruster for maneuverability) to provide a protective keel and skeg mounted rudder and to provide ample room in the engineroom for all-around engine access
  • Ample handholds on deck and in the cabin for safety
  • Economical cruising speed of 8 knots, but with a top speed of 15 knots.

A long list of “musts” and “wants”. They found only four models that could respond to these criteria and settled on a Helmsman Trawlers 37 Sedan in its single stateroom version. But — alas and with some despair — no used models were available on the west coast. So Waterline Boats helped them purchase one in Annapolis and they shipped it to Seattle!

Needless to say Fred and Stephanie are excited about their new boat after planning and searching for so long, and they look forward to many happy years of cruising ahead. Having searched with such well-defined criteria this pre-owned Helmsman Trawlers fits them perfectly!
