Waiting For Moorage?  Need Moorage?  We have On Land Moorage Available For You!  Closest to the San Juans! 


Seriously - we wish we could be on the same level as these sellers - we know it's a bold statement: but they just might be the most fastidious boat owners we've ever met! This 38 Helmsman is as close to buying a new boat as you can get - except it's already here and you can buy it NOW!  No waiting around for this amazing vessel!

This 2016 single diesel trawler offers more than other boats in this size range can ever brag about - it's amazing all that you get for a boat that will fit into a 40' slip!  She's light on the fuel with her Cummins QSB 380hp single diesel engine with under 700 hours!   She's equipped with bow & stern thrusters, diesel heat, molded stairs to the flybridge, a brand new generator, Magnum inverter and a pilothouse that rivals boats in much larger sizes.

We can't wait to get you aboard - she is out of the water and in our OnLand Marina ready for you to see all she has to offer!  Give us a call or come see her today!

Welcome to the Helmsman brand: we are BIG fans of this thoughtful, well-crafted line of trawlers that gives our clients an upscale feel and performance that is tremendously more affordable than other single diesel trawlers on the market.  If you start looking around while on the water and at the docks, you will notice these boats appear more and more as their popularity in the Pacific Northwest increases – and for good reason.  Helmsman Trawlers are built with quality materials and a mantra to build the boat to enhance your experience.  No short cuts are taken during construction – you won’t have to worry about wet or shotty stringers down the line or coring issues (because the hulls are NOT cored). This is a manufacturer that listens to clients and continually evolves to meet their feedback and elevates their standards with every vessel produced. We are excited to get you aboard this 38 model to show you all of the amazing features of this fine brand.

This is one of the best pilothouses we've ever seen in a vessel this size!  She's roomy with excellent visibility and offers dual aluminum pilothouse doors to access both port and starboard side decks.  Just outside these doors are the molded steps that lead to the flybridge so you can get there safely. The L-shaped settee can be enlarged while underway, at the dock, or any time you want to have more seating - it's a simple conversion that extends the settee for the length of the pilothouse (it's also a good twin berth for extra sleeping).

  • Bimini top
  • Canvas dodgers 

The accommodations on this vessel are far more than initially expected for a vessel of this size, as you will find that she welcomes multiple guests (if you want them, of course).  We challenge anyone passing this vessel over because it's a "one-stateroom boat" to give us just five minutes aboard: we're confident you'll see that the guest accommodations are better than those on boats considerably larger.  You're welcome.


  • The Owner's Suite is located forward, boasting a centerline queen berth with steps on both sides for easy access
  • The ensuite head compartment (to port) offers a molded sink, vanity with behind-the-mirror storage, under sink stowage and electric fresh water flush Dometic Masterflush toilet
  • The ensuite shower (to starboard) is completely enclosed in its own compartment with a generous sized bench, stowage compartment and port light window for natural light and ventilation
  • Two hanging lockers
  • Reading lights
  • Under berth stowage

GUEST ACCOMMODATIONS: to merely say that the "salon settee converts to a double berth" undermines the factory's intention to create this space into a luxurious VIP stateroom that provides all the amenities to make your guests excited to stay aboard, including spectacular views.

  • Salon settee converts to a comfortable double berth that provides gorgeous views (especially while at anchor). The salon table drops easily and the single fold-out cushion necessary for the conversion, easily stored in the compartment under the salon hatch, fits perfectly to create a great sleeping berth for two (the entire process takes minutes)
  • Reading lights above settee / berth
  • The guest head is located off of the salon, just forward of the VIP berth, and offers a molded vanity with sink, stowage cabinet and shower
  • The entire space can be sectioned off with a curtain and is on the opposite end of the vessel from the Owner's Suite to offer both areas a nice, separate feel



The galley is located on the same level as the salon so you won't miss a minute of the conversation, nor will you miss the gorgeous views out the generously sized opening windows.
