Long-time Broker’s Second Location now Open
Bellingham Yacht Sales and the Port of Everett have signed a new, two-year lease to expand the yacht brokerage’s operations with an office at the Port of Everett Marina. The office officially opened in early February and is the first dealership ever at the port to offer new yacht sales. The Port of Everett is the second location for Bellingham Yachts, which has occupied office space and moorage at the Port of Bellingham Marina for the past 32 years. The brokerage currently has 12 employees and will be hiring additional staff members for the new Everett office.
“For many years we have wanted to expand into the greater Seattle area in order to better serve our Puget Sound customers,” said co-owner of Bellingham Yacht Sales Dean Ouilette. “There were many attributes that we were looking for, including haul out facilities, a boat launch, prime moorage, and waterfront office space. In addition, we hoped to find a location that would be a destination in its own right with terrific restaurants, hotels, housing, parks, trails, and public space. We are pleased to say we have found the Port of Everett’s new Waterfront Place development to offer everything we were looking for.”
Bellingham Yacht Sales features new boats from Back Cove Yachts and Sabre Yachts, as well as used Cutwater boats and Ranger Tugs. A full array of services and in-house yacht shipwrights are also offered, largely thanks to the capabilities of the Port of Everett. This new lease includes 450 square feet of office space and 150 lineal feet of dock space within the Craftsman District of Waterfront Place.
“This is a great strategic partnership,” Port Commissioner Troy McClelland said. “It’s a missing piece of our puzzle, and a meaningful and important step in expanding services to our boating community as we continue to build out the Waterfront Place Central development.”
The office is located at 1135 Craftsman Way, Suite 1100, and the boats are on display at the port’s I-Dock next to the Travelift Dock. If you’re interested in contacting Bellingham Yacht Sales, you can check out their website at bellinghamyachts.com or call their Everett office at 425-609-1100.
