MY Itasca in Alaska

“I have been around the world three times on Itasca. We’ve been to the Arctic, Antarctic, and everywhere in between. We’re a single screw yacht traveling in some of the harshest places on the planet. Breakdowns are not an option. When we’re in the Pacific we come to Seattle for the very best in yacht maintenance and mechanical expertise. The technicians and craftsmen in Seattle understand how important it is to keep us running; they’re relied upon by the commercial towing and fishing industries. They’re hardworking, fair, and capable.”

Salmon Bay Marine Center has on site and local maritime services

“Seattle has a thousand commercial fish boats. A couple hundred oceangoing tugs running to Alaska and Hawaii. If the lights aren’t burning and the props aren’t turning they aren’t making money. If you need a tail shaft in Seattle you have half a dozen options. In California, you have one, maybe two. Seattle has so much more infrastructure. Take the machine shops we have, the prop shops, hydraulic experts, everything that supports the maritime industry. There’s so much more here. More haulouts, more people, more options.”
