New West Marine Store in Seattle is a boaters shopping haven

West Marine has dropped anchor at a new location in Seattle, and this mega store packs more punch for all boaters.

The new store located at 1275 Westlake Avenue North off South Lake Union is hosting a grand opening celebration this weekend [Sept. 26-27], and features contests, prize give-a-ways and informative clinics by industry veterans.

Volunteers from the Disabled Americans Veterans local Seattle Chapter will offer refreshments.

I had a chance to tour the store today that covers 18,000 square feet, and boaters can find everything they need in one stop. It is a definite “go to” place for boaters.

You can find a huge selection of sailboat hardware, safety gear, electronics including chartplotters, radios and fishfinders, and boats and motors.

This is the largest West Marine store in the Pacific Northwest, and they offer more than 13,000 products. The store has an expanded parts counter, a full rigging shop, a huge line of electronics, fishing supplies, electrical needs and “green’ cleaning and boating products.

The store also has a wide range of apparel gear and boaters footwear from West Marine, Columbia, Third Reef and Helly Hansen just to name a few.

The new West Marine store will be hosting some free events next month. They include Oct. 8, 6-7 p.m., Rules of the Road hosted by the Coast Guard Auxiliary with a free ACR strobe light for participants; Oct. 15, 5-6 p.m., 3 Strand Splicing with West Marine Rigging by Cliff Hennen, a West Marine Rigger, with free splicing fid for participants; and Oct. 22, 6-7 p.m., Basic Marine Safety and Medicine by Tom Milne of Remote Medical, with a free first aid kit for participants. Details: 206-926-0356.
