NW Explorations

Welcome to NW Explorations Yacht Sales.

Welcome to NW Explorations based in beautiful Bellingham, Washington with the San Juan and Gulf Islands at our doorstep. Not only are we a yacht brokerage, we are the world's only authorized Grand Banks charter fleet with 17 Grand Banks available. This offers a unique opportunity for our customers to charter one of these lovely vessels, but also allows you to do a try before you buy. NW Explorations also charters DeFever, Ocean Alexander, Kadey Krogen & Sabre.

The company has been in business since 1978 and was recently purchased by a Canadian couple, Ross & Evie Tennant who are continuing the NW Explorations passion for customer service and boating. Broker Scott Blake has been selling Grand Banks (new and used) for over 24 years, has owned a number of Grand Banks over the years; 32, 36 Sedan and Europa, 38 Eastbay, and two 46 Classics. Joining them is Ken Bowles, also an enthusiastic GB owner and recently sold his 42 Grand Banks Classic. Tim Hoving affiliated with the NW Explorations team as of January 2015. He has been in the boating industry for 20 years and an avid boater all of his life. Tim brings expertise in the DeFever, Hatteras, Nordhavn, Fleming, Ocean Alexander and Selene lines. Tim is also a Permanent Resident in Canada and is working in alliance with Arbutus Coast Yachts in Canoe Cove Marina in Sidney, BC Canada a few days a week.

NW Explorations also offers three-day powerboat training courses including women-only courses. You can attend a weekend course or hire a skipper to personally train you while on your own charter boat.

Our main office is at Gate 3 in Squalicum Harbor. Ken serves the Central and South Sound market from his base in Seattle. NW Explorations has opened a new Canadian office at the Port Sidney Marina. Please come visit us if you are looking to buy, sell, or charter a Grand Banks, Defever, Kadey Krogen, Ocean Alexander, Selene, Nordhavn, Fleming or other quality cruiser.

The Kadey-Krogen 58' is a full displacement trawler. Its hull design insures a smooth and seaworthy cruise. The Portuguese bridge and walkway on the starboard side make it easy to board and disembark at amidships or on the stern. Three doors at deck height allow easy access to the dock without steps or stairs.
