Boatless in Seattle

Hello!
We have been lurking here for a few weeks, doing our research. We are in Seattle, looking for a 34' - 40' trawler to go explore the San Juan Islands in. Thank you in advance for your advice and guidance as we refine our ideas about what we are looking for! Or biggest challenges are headroom - husband is 6'3", and diesel fumes as our boat will be moored in a residential area and we want to stay on good terms with our neighbors!
Cheers
Sarah

Welcome!

If you can tie up your boat in a residential area in Seattle, you are in more danger from diesel Mercedes and Audis than a boat.

Lots of boats in that size range. Ask yourself:
- How much are you willing to spend?
- How fast do you want/need to travel?
- How many folks will typically be on board and for how long?

The answer to those questions will start to narrow down the boat selection tremendously.

Good luck with your search. I would only look at a diesel.

Welcome. We just put an offer in on a CHB 34 . We live in Puyallup but currently have our Bayliner moored in Tacoma. I suppose were on the same journey.

I'm putting my Grand Banks up for sale. It would be a great cruiser for the San Juans. She's a 48' classic 1974. Don't know if that's too big of a boat for you but worth a look. She's moored in northern CA under cover.

Good luck with your search. Happy boating

Welcome aboard, Noreej.

What's the serial number? Can you include a photo of the GB plate?
