What’s New & Noteworthy at the boat show? Tell us and your fellow show-goers…

For the past few years we’ve done a post updating readers on what Three Sheets Northwest’s editors have found new and/or noteworthy at the Seattle Boat Show. And though it’s fun to put together while walking the isles, poking through boats and listening to seminars, this year we want to hear from you.

We’re asking you, the readers, to tell us and fellow Three Sheets fans what to check out while perusing booths and climbing on boats. Now that we’re halfway through the 2018 Seattle Boat Show, what has caught your eye that others should go see? What’s not to miss and what products should we remember after the show? Or, what boat or boats sparked your curiosity the most?

From novelty to practical, it doesn’t matter, and it doesn’t necessarily have to be a boat or product. Simply give a “tip of your cap” in the comments section below to something or someone you’ve found interesting and we’ll choose one tip from a reader to send a Three Sheets Northwest hat.

Thanks for your help!!

Note: This is meant to be a fun and informative contest. At the discretion of our editors, unhelpful or negative comments will be removed.

    Check out the new Greenline 33 at Lake Union. Very interesting boat and builder. Manufactured in Slovenia since 2009, they are the most awarded boats in history( according to the folks that are selling them now in the US and Canada) and they’ve built more than 700 boats. They made their reputation with hybrid diesel/electric propulsion, cool features (like the nearly fully opening aft end of the main cabin) and uniquely identifiable designs. Which we call Euro-style with traditional Chris Craft-looking throwback lines! Beyond all that, the new 2017 vessel at the show has a price tag of $194,000. And while that particular boat does not have the hybrid system (it’s just diesel powered), that’s still a VERY competitive price for a brand new, well-built 33-foot cruising boat!

    Something new, very useful to all boaters, and FREE!
    The Northwest Association of Networked Ocean Observing Systems (NANOOS) Visualization System (NVS) “Boaters” dashboard.
    NVS provides easy, free access to real-time (and 6 months of historic) weather and ocean observations, forecasts, data, and visualizations.
    What this means in English: Observations, forecasts, and maritime tools tailored for the boating community. Includes tide and current forecasts, digital nautical charts, and marina information. Everybody has easy access to a “NVS Boaters Dashboard” of weather and ocean data for the Pacific Northwest. Real time observations, forecasts, and up to 6 months of history. Also lets you create and save your own routes on NOAA Nautical Charts. Currently only available on-line from your computer, but hopefully mobile coming soon.
