At NW Explorations, we serve our customers with integrity by providing professional, knowledgeable, helpful and enjoyable guidance and support throughout the process of buying, selling, chartering, or servicing a boat. Our focus is on trawlers and quality cruising vessels with an emphasis on pre-owned Grand Banks. We have extensive experience with these timeless vessels, having owned 11 GB’s among us, helped hundreds of customers buy and sell them and helped thousands more charter them.
We are here because we love Grand Banks and the trawler lifestyle and want to help you create the boating experience of your dreams. We are host to one of the largest Grand Banks collections in one location. One benefit of having our exclusively Grand Banks charter fleet is the opportunity to help our customers achieve those dreams, without the pressure of having to “sell” everyone a boat. Whether you dream of owning the “dependable diesel cruiser” that set the bar more than 50 years ago, would like to join our family of charter boat owners, or would like to take that cruise of a lifetime in our pristine waters of the Pacific Northwest, Canadian Gulf Islands or see all that Alaska has to offer, we can take you there!
