Seattle area boat yard recommendation, please

Hello, I'm looking for a shipyard in the Seattle area to haul our boat and perform some stabilizer work on it (new fin seals) plus a couple other minor items. We're new to the area and hoping that someone might know of the obvious place or two to call.

Boat is approximately 60 tons with a beam of 19', length is 76'.

Thanks in advance!
Ryan

If you have Naiads, get in touch with Pacific Yacht Management and see if Doug can work on your boat. He’s been working on Naiad as long as anyone and he’s excellent. Doug and a helper came up to Anacortes last time my boat was hauled out to do the seals.

Thank you both for the quick and excellent recommendations, thank you. And yes, I do have Naiads, so that's especially good to know about Doug!

S3 Marine works on Stabilizers. They might be related to Pacific Yacht Management, I’m not sure about their relationship.

I use S3 Maritime for my Naiad maintenance. They can come
to wherever you get hauled out in the area.

Not related specifically to stabilizers, but I had a very bad experience at Seaview Boatyard (Bellingham but same company) and do not recommend them. Due to this experience, I question their honesty. Just my experience and fully realize others may have had differing experiences.

This reflects my opinion of Seaview boat Yard in Seattle.

Thank you for this. Seaview told me that their Seattle (Ballard) location couldn't handle our 19' beam, so they have me scheduled for haul-out up at their Bellingham location. I'm not thrilled about having to make that long round trip (boat is currently in Lake Union).

Any other recommendations besides Seaview?

CSR has a good reputation (in the lake) but is pricier. We typically head up to Port Townsend as it’s a co-op and diy friendly yard.

With the size of your boat you may want to reach out to commercial yards. Because you are on Lake Union Pacific Fisherman Shipyard and Stabbert Yacht and Ship could be good choices.

A bit of advice when putting a yacht into a workboat yard. Be sure they will allow you to use the vendor / sub contractor of your choice should you want to use the servicers mentioned above thread. Understand these are workboat yards. You may want to draft a contract for the work you expect the yard to do. Were it my boat this would include protecting the decks etc from scuff marks. Easy enough to do but you will have to pay for it. The crew in these yards are used to workboats and will come aboard in work boots that have walked through all manner of stuff in the yard. Depending up the lift they use yard crew may need to be aboard for line handling.

Great, thank you both. I have a call into Boat Haven in Port Townsend. Their haul and yard storage rates are very competitive, hauling ~$500 less then Seaview.

I could not disagree more. I had them do a project, it went south, they were very reluctant to fix their oops,

Port Townsend Boat Haven - Pros

This reply does not address the OP stabilizer needs specifically, but may add value as Port Townsend (PT) Boat Haven is mentioned.

We hauled at PT one year ago. The Port of PT yard employees were ALL prompt, polite, experienced, and very conscientious. They continued to add value through our week there with suggestions, answers, and a general, “yes, we can accommodate” or “you can find what you need at xxx” to every reasonable request. The scheduling office was very positive and easy to work with as I coordinated dates with the service business, arrival moorage, and final payment/departure moorage. The yard guys were “taken care of” after the haul and after the launch. This was an exceptional experience and I recommend them without hesitation.

I do not recommend the PT service business we contracted with. They were unable to complete much of the work we specifically agreed to and scheduled in advance, and were less than candid as the week progressed. The service manager (still there) claims to be a cruiser - initially providing some confidence - but leaving an even more bitter taste at the end because he must know better than to treat fellow cruisers in this fashion. Please PM if additional details are desired.

Thank you, Jeff - great feedback on this yard. Still waiting to hear back from them regarding a potential haul-out; hopefully we'll get something scheduled today.

Cheers!

+1 for CSR. We use CSR for our boat with 18' beam and they have always treated us great. S3 will meet your boat at CSR for any work too. They have serviced our Wesmar stabilizers there multiple times now.

I find this combo to be one of the most professional in Seattle. Not the cheapest but sometimes money is not what’s most important.
