Description

Seaview Boatyard, Inc. was founded in 1973 and consisted of a single facility located at Shilshole Bay Marina, Seaview West Boatyard. At the time of its inception, the yard primarily performed haulouts for annual maintenance and some minor repairs. As the needs of our customers grew, so did the list of services we offered. By 1985 we had outgrown the space at our Shilshole location and added a larger facility on the Ship Canal in Ballard, Seaview East. This new facility enabled us to bring in-house many of the services that our customer had previously hired outside contractors to perform. With this increase in services and capacity, our customer base expanded to include many vessels from Seattle’s legendary fishing fleet as well as a number of other commercial vessels. In 1997, the facility at Seaview West underwent a complete renovation, including the construction of a state-of-the-art indoor repair facility and expansion of the existing outdoor facilities. In the spring of 2002 Seaview Boatyard leased a multi-acre site at Squalicum Harbor Marina from the Port of Bellingham and opened the yard that fall with a 35-ton travelift. Shortly after we began construction of a new travelift pier and in November 2004 Seaview North took delivery of a 150-ton travelift, the largest lift north of Seattle. In 2008 Seaview opened its newest facility, Seaview Yacht Service Fairhaven on Bellingham’s south bay. The Fairhaven Yard houses three indoor, heated repair bays which enable our technicians to efficiently perform weather sensitive repairs and restorations regardless of the season. In 2011, Seaview Boatyard once again expanded operations, acquiring a 30,000 square foot indoor heated storage facility adjacent to the existing Fairhaven repair yard. Additionally, with the closure of Seaview East and expansion of services at the West Yard at Shilshole Bay Marina operations in Seattle were consolidated in a single location to maximize efficiency and continue to provide Northwest boaters the high level of service they have come to expect when working with Seaview Boatyard. Today, our facilities provide customers with a choice of full service boatyards conveniently located throughout the Pacific Northwest. Each location provides area boaters the finest in topside refinishing, fiberglass and gelcoat repairs, major refit work including structural modifications, woodworking, rigging, commissioning, mechanical installations such as bow thrusters and stabilizers, as well as complete marine restoration and general maintenance services. Much of the work that we do at Seaview is insurance related. Over the years, the marine insurance companies have come to know and trust the quality of work we perform. This trust was earned through the development of a long-standing relationship founded on the assurance of professional work completed on time and within estimated budgets. The primary mission of Seaview Boatyard is to provide boat repairs and customer service at the highest level of quality. In order to assure that we realize the objectives implicit in our mission it is essential that we consistently produce a high quality product that exceeds anything else that is available on the market. In order to ensure that the work we provide is equal to our standard of excellence, we strive to foster a positive environment for our employees. We encourage our employees to develop and refine their technical skills, as well as their ability to self-manage and make effective decisions; as a result, our employees have a degree of ownership and participation in the company that ensures their commitment to performance at only the highest level. Central to our commitment to excellence is a continuing focus on new technologies in the marine industry. Seaview has been at the forefront of advancements in marine technology, actively working as innovators in the field and leaders in the industry - developing and refining improved techniques of repair and maintenance specifically tailored to the changing needs of Northwest boaters. We are committed to ensuring our continued ability to produce work of unparalleled quality and craftsmanship, to lead the industry into the future of marine repair and restoration and to continue to serve as an asset to the community and a credit to the marine industry. While high quality performance is of paramount importance, an equally fundamental element of our mission as a company is customer service. Our principles of customer service are based on a foundation of uncompromisingly high personal and company-wide standards for honesty, integrity and professionalism. These principles dictate that we treat our customers and their opinions and concerns, with the utmost respect, that we take the time to discuss the repair process in as much detail as necessary. We welcome our customer’s participation in the repair process and believe that good communication is essential to all aspects of project management. We pride ourselves on our awareness of the needs of our customers and our willingness to meet those needs in the best and most efficient manner possible. Regardless of the scope of work involved or the size of the vessel, we strive to ensure that every project will receive the same care and attention that has earned us a national reputation for quality work. Consistent application of these concepts to all phases of the corporation's operations is the major reason that Seaview Boatyard, Inc. has become one of the largest, busiest and most respected boatyards on the West coast....

Not a good experience... Got pressure to have unnecessary work performed, at a very expensive rate. When I asked to just have the work stopped, Seaview went ahead with a bottom paint job I had specifically asked to be cancelled.|In short, I cannot trust the service they provide to be the one we need.
