Providing premium service to the customer interested in buying or selling a high quality yacht

In 2002 the partners of Swiftsure Yachts joined together to create a full service brokerage for yachtsmen interested in buying or selling high quality boats. A team approach, in-depth expertise and exceptional service are the hallmarks of our plan and are designed to ensure we meet our customers' expectations.

Swiftsure Yachts image A TEAM APPROACH is at the heart of Swiftsure Yachts’ business plan. We step outside the norm of commission-based yacht sales to make certain our collective expertise is directed by our clients’ needs.

IN-DEPTH EXPERTISE forms the basis of the knowledge we share with our clients. We keep abreast of changing market conditions both locally and nationally, and we put in thousands of miles at sea each year to give a real-world foundation to our knowledge of sailing, boat systems and boat design.

EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE is our watchword. Clear and on-going communication combined with a commitment to listening carefully focuses our brokerage on activities designed to bring added value to the process of selling and buying yachts.

Located at Nautical Landing on Lake Union, our office is based in the heart of Seattle's brokerage community. If you are considering selling your boat, please stop by or give us a call and let us show you why Swiftsure Yachts is the right choice.

BRAVE SPIRIT will be on display at Trawler Fest in Anacortes,

WA; May 16th to 18th.

BRAVE SPIRIT is a custom fiberglass Northwest expedition yacht built on a proven purse seiner hull by Howard Moe and the craftsman at Little Hoquiam Shipyard in Washington State.  Little Hoquiam Shipyard started in the 60’s building fishing vessels to stand up to the rigors of Alaskan and Pacific Northwest fishing.  They continue today with a much regarded portfolio of research, charter, yachtfish, commercial fishing, and yachts up to 120’ in length.  Knowledgeable west coast mariners appreciate the strength and durability of these boats.  As proof of these qualities, BRAVE SPIRIT, has weathered gracefully since she was built in 1994.  She shows very well and has served her owners well as an outstanding, purpose built vessel to explore the waters between Seattle and Southeast Alaska.

Experienced Pacific Northwest boaters will appreciate the configuration and outfitting of this unique motoryacht.   Highlights include:

  • Upper level Bridge with 360 degree views, reverse forward windows and raised settee
  • Bridge, cockpit, and port/starboard wing stations controlling large rudders, twin engines and a powerful hydraulic bow thruster
  • Propellers and rudders protected behind large, stainless steel-capped keel/skegs
  • Safe nighttime navigation with protected running gear, commercial grade search lights and bow “driving” lights
  • Easy boarding through side doors onto low, covered side decks or onto integral stern platform and transom door
  • Wide, covered side decks with tall bulwarks and handrails
  • Fast, light, and rugged AB aluminum RIB inflatable with 60 HP Yanmar engine
  • 1600 gallons of diesel tankage for over 1000nm range; more than enough to run from Seattle to Ketchikan
  • Comfortable and economic 10 knot cruise speed with top speed of 17 knots for punching trough narrow passages against foul currents
  • Webasto hydronic heating system with thermostats and fan controls in all interior spaces
  • Excellent maintenance access to engines, gensets, and systems
  • Large cockpit configured for fishing or entertaining
  • Just enough exterior wood to make this a yacht while minimizing annual maintenance costs
  • Spacious and open salon/galley with ample space for entertaining a crowd
  • Extremely safe due to rugged construction, fire detection system, large inventory of Halon; CO2; and dry chemical extinguishers, survival suits, liferaft, float free EPIRB, AIS transponder, and communications gear

BRAVE SPIRIT is moored at our Lake Union docks for easy viewing.   Any buyer considering a comparably sized Fleming, Offshore, Ocean Alexander, Grand Banks, Outer Reef, Tollycraft, or Marlowe would be wise to view this boat.  Built in Washington State and outfitted for cruising the rugged and dramatic Salish Sea and southeast Alaska, BRAVE SPIRIT is a unique and capable Northwest expedition yacht.
