Broker’s Comments:
A distinctive and classy small trawler in every way a Grand Banks. She’s a capable and sought-after Northwest cruiser. One of the early fiberglass 32s, this one has been lovingly cared for and kept in fresh water by her current owner for over two decades.

The seller reports the fuel tanks have been kept filled to make sure they are full during the winter months as has been his custom since purchasing the boat 25 years ago.

The teak decks on this vessel are showing signs of needing to be repaired or removed. We have a contractor’s bid to accomplish that task which we believe is very reasonable.

2016-Boatbid-Boat-Kato
This Custom Kato 68 Yachtfisher is in BoatBid – an online Boat Auction offered through Waterline Boats / Boatshed Seattle.

The Kato is a custom yachfisher built upon a Bertram design – with twin diesels and a semi-displacement fiberglass hull. Listing agent Gary Buck comments on the Kato 68 Yachtfisher below.

Broker’s Comments:
A great value by any measure or comparison, Sea-Going Capability per dollar, Tonnage per dollar, Living Space per dollar, Power per dollar, Feet in Length per dollar, Systems per dollar, the list can go on. Manufactured by the Kato Boatworks Yard in Japan this vessel was constructed from plans that were derived from the popular Bertram 58 design.

It is a FRP hull with the decks and portions of the house made from aluminum. She’s been used as a comfortable live-aboard and has a huge amount of space (over 800 square feet!).

This vessel has traveled to Mexico and is a multiple time Alaskan veteran. With the deep “V” hull and stabilizers it makes her a suitable ocean traveling vessel. Her Command Bridge feels like a ship with great visibility and lots of seating. This vessel also boasts a hard cover enclosed bridge deck. It is well equipped for extended cruises and features systems for pot pulling and fishing (with deck mounted freezers).

The aft deck and cockpit are large areas for fishing or entertaining. Built very robustly this vessel compares favorably to either a Bertram or Hatteras Convertible, a Californian CPMY or even an Egg Harbor Yachtfisher.

But there’s so much more information to share about the Kato! Therfore, you’ll want to view the complete specifications, 118 photos and a video tour of the Kato! Just click the link.> Custom Kato 68 Yachtfisher

Waterline Boats ~broker spotlight | Dave Carleson

WLB-Broker-Spotlight-DC

Born in Salem, Oregon, Dave Carleson has loved boats his whole life. Boating was a family thing, making family trips to the coast and renting rowboats on the Siletz River from a very young age. When Dave was older, he purchased a Gary 18 Sailboat, but his first boat was one he and his father built together when he was 4 years old.

DC

“We were on a farm near the Willamette River and as a child we would go to the river for picnics and drag boats on strings, pond boats we had built. So interest in the water just came with being born into this family.”

In the 70s Dave moved to Portland and began his 26-year -long teaching career. At the same time, he developed a fiberglass canoe company that, over time, built more than a thousand canoes. Later, his company built a sailboat, a Bahama 25, which sold commercially in the Bay area California and Seattle.

“I dreamed in those days of being able to not teach school anymore and have a water related business in Seattle.”

In the 80s Dave took a year off from both teaching and the canoe business. He lived aboard a Jason 35 sailboat. Once the year was up he found he didn’t want to go back and in 1989 he co-founded and owned Mahina Yachts on Bainbridge Island. For 25 years he connected buyers and sellers and loved what he did. He and few others were the first small group of Washington brokers to qualify as Certified Professional Yacht Brokers (CPYB).

In 2015 Dave was working on a co-broker deal with Scott and Lisa Helker of Waterline Boats. Dave appreciated their friendliness and professional ethics when it came to the people they worked with and for. Scott and Lisa were also impressed by Dave and offered him a job. Dave started working at Waterline Boats in May 2015.

Today, Dave lives on Bainbridge Island and owns a 38’ Sportfisher. He has cruised around a lot of Puget Sound and loves getting away and exploring.

“You get out to Neah Bay where the ocean meets the straights I would have to say that’s a big favorite of mine. Where big geographical areas converge. All of it is richer. The birds, the seaweed, the climate changes. It’s more wild.”

With so many years as a boater and a broker under his belt, Dave knows that with true boaters it’s about adventure. What boating have you done in the past? What boating adventures would you like to do? If you have an adventure in mind, Dave wants to help you make it happen.
