On November 30th Greg Allen of YachtMasters NW and Paul Zimmer and Ryan Parker co-owners of S3 Maritime announced they were merging these two well established and well respected companies which will now be operating as S3 Maritime. YachtMasters has been located on Lake Union for the last four decades while S3 has been located just inside the Locks on the Lake Washington Ship Canal for the last nine years. As both companies continue to grow, it only made sense to consolidate their work forces and facilities to better serve their growing markets.

Both companies are well known for providing high quality and high tech services to the recreational and commercial yacht market. Each company brings a unique set of skills to this new endeavor. S3 is well known for their wide range of maritime expertise while YachtMasters has a rigging department and a custom fiberglass construction department to add to their services. While S3 has a large mix of commercial and recreational clients, YachtMasters is known for supplying custom, state-of-the-art, fully integrated electronic packages for larger recreational vessels.

This new operation will be based out of S3’s new 18,000 sq ft facility located in the Salmon Bay Marine Center at 2360 W. Commodore Way, Suite 200, in Seattle. This is on the south side of the Lake Washington Ship Canal and has convenient moorage for vessels to 100+ feet. They will also be exhibiting the Big Seattle Boat Show coming up in January at Booth #2418 located on the Electronics Concourse above the main floor.
