Washington State LLC
Vancouver Canada built pilothouse motor yacht ideally suited for Pacific Northwest cruising!
Tremendous list of upgrades made by factory and professional maritime service providers. This owner operated vessel leaves little to be desired as she is ready for adventure. The current owner brought SeaSon to the WestBay factory in 2019 for the installation of a hydronic Diesel furnace to heat the entire boat, including the flybridge. The factory also reinforced the stern bollards to tow 10,000 lbs. Additionally, the Vermulen family, owners of WestBay, did a complete review of the boat to assess anything that it may have needed for trouble free cruising. Over $100,000 of documented work was done by the factory.
This is a great boat with WestBay quality that has been fully updated including all new flybridge enclosure and panels by John Barrett enclosures (2020), the latest in electronics, and a barely used 2014 Walker Bay tender. The boat is equipped with a YachtController wireless system for engine, bow and stern thruster and windlass controls to aid single handed operation. Control the vessel from any place on board. Even control bow thruster from the dock with the YachtController.
The wide beam sets her apart from comparably sized boats. You can run the boat economically at 10 knots for nearly 1 mpg or speed up when you need to get someplace if the weather turns. She is ready for extensive cruising. You won’t be disappointed. SeaSon is a great value and has been maintained with an open checkbook by the current and prior owner.

One of the best features of this boat is how the wide 20’ beam improves the living space over comparable sized motor yachts. The connection between the galley and pilothouse with the enormous forward facing dining table is an amazing feature. It is part of what makes this boat highly suitable for a couple who are owner operators. The captain is rarely alone because whether someone is preparing food, eating or just wanting a great view, this seating arrangement is fantastic. The table also has a removable leaf to create a full sized dining table with the two Stidd captain chairs rotating to match up to table.
The pilothouse has amazing visibility from every spot whether underway or at rest. The handsome wood blinds provide great privacy or natural light when opened.
The salon is enormous. The wrap around sofa was recently recovered and is super comfortable. A large group of people can play games, watch a movie or just visit. The space is slightly private from the galley/pilothouse. It features a great pass through window. This pass through space is excellent for giving the captain visibility to the port side stern. The salon has the main TV hidden in a pop up cabinet. The views are unobstructed and the seating level is terrific for looking out the big windows all around. It is a quiet room underway. The salon has lots of storage including a wine refrigerator.
The entertainment systems are fantastic with high quality surround sound. The Samsung ArtTV is a great addition along the available digital artwork or your own photographs in what otherwise looks like a picture frame. It is fully connected to the AV system and serves as a second TV screen, gaming screen or whatever you need it to be.
The Chef's Galley is relatively large with beautiful black granite countertops. Lots of counter space, storage and full sized stainless steel appliances make it feel like home. This galley rivals many home kitchens and will be appreciated by the entire family

This Westbay has the extended seating flybridge. This seating area is extra large with a wrap around sofa, forward seating and two sets of tables to the stern along the benches. The result is a very large entertaining space. The two captain chairs face a complete set of Garmin electronics.
The newly installed Barrett Enclosures bimini, canvas and windows look and work incredibly well. John Barrett did the original enclosures and hardware for the convertible top when the boat was built. He has improved the solution with what he installed for the 2020 boating season. Besides the windows being clear as glass, he created rounded sides at all four corners of the flybridge, the result is great visibility and looks. All panels zipping onto the corners are removable and foldable into connectors in the bimini. This means the large center window, side windows and nearly the entire back fold upward and easily connect to loops attached to the bimini. Easy for one person to open or close.
This flybridge soft top setup has advantages over a hardtop. The advantages include the ability to completely open the entire structure if desired, the ease and openness of the Barrett panel design, the newly installed Hydronic heat on the flybridge with its own digital thermostat allowing the space as warm as you want it to be.
Behind the seating area is the boat deck holding the nearly new Walker Bay Generation 450 dinghy. It is easily launched or retrieved to port with the oversized crane. If the owners preferred to tow the dinghy and utilize this space, there is a removable set of stainless steel pole life lines to surround the boat deck for safety. Stowed in the large cabinet under the flybridge sink. Also under the sink cabinet is a large subwoofer to complement the JL Audio speakers on the arch and forward.
The flybridge has storage under all the seating which is relatively voluminous. This is a great place for workout gear with plenty of floorspace to do strength workouts.
The flybridge has a great sound system with its own AV head unit mounted in the binnacle. There is also a Sonos system source attached to the his head unit.
The Flybridge has a removable outdoor carpet that allows water to drain without creating mold and mildew.

WIFI and cellular improvements added by current owner so boat can keep guests/owner working and in touch at or away from the dock.
Cabin Level Forward Systems Room Access
A great feature on board the vessel is the systems room located through a carpeted hatch outside the hall bathrooms on the lower cabin level. This spacious room contains all the major house electrical systems, black water systems, through hulls for overboard discharge, hydronic heater, some HVAC and other systems. It is a large spacious well lit room. It makes it easy to reach the through hull levers when underway. It also provides an extra storage area for goods. As is the case throughout the WestBay nearly all systems are well labeled from the factory so you can find and troubleshoot when needed.

Electric baseboard heaters added 2019 for keeping boat cozy and eliminate need for space heaters during winter.
To recap, this boat has all types of heat and the ability to control from each living area. So one more time that is diesel hydraunic furnace, baseboard heaters, and reverse cycle heat and air conditioning! What more can you ask for?
Amazing lazarette and engine room access through full sized swim platform door. Also accessible from cockpit hatch with built in Stainless steel ladder. This is a terrific feature for the boat as it allows easy access storage for myriad things on board the boat and full access to the various boat mechanical systems. Across from the guest/ captains cabin is a large Storage/utility/shop room. It has a number of special features:

Swim Platform Features
Large size swim platform with removable staples
Special WestBay designed and built Paddleboard/Kayak holder created in 2018 with collaboration between current owner and WestBay factory. Set into two station holders at center of swim platform, this high capacity rack is fully adjustable and can be easily removed or rotated inward when not in use. When in use, It can hold up to 500 lbs of weight and has been used by the current owner to hold a large inflatable 2 person kayak along with 2-4 stand up paddle boards. Launching and storing is easy with this rack. Rack is also easily stored and or removed since it is two independent poles. Keeps equipment stable and safe underway or at dock/anchorage. Very convenient and versatile. Looks great as well.
Custom made Stern tie reel (2018) looks like the current staples and can fit in any set of staple holders. When not in use can be placed in the engine room staple holder forward. This has 400’ of high quality rope suited for the boat size. The solution was custom designed and made in collaboration between the current owner and WestBay. Makes letting out and pulling back stern tie line easy and convenient
The stern lower rear Bollards were reinforced by the WestBay factory to easily and safely support towing
Added to the swim platform rear are extra grab handles to make getting on and off the boat from the swim platform to port and starboard. They look like OEM and they were installed by WestBay (2018)
Ladder hidden under platform with easy access in water
Beneath the swim platform are 4 high quality and power Lumishore underwater lights. They were installed in 2018 when the boat was in dry dock in Seattle. Controls are in the cockpit. Lights are integrated into the AV system should you want them to flash and chance color to the beat of the music. Amazing color changes and intensity.
Electric Glendenning 50amp shore power cable is retracted from the Port side of the swim platform
Teak decks are in great shape
Added Towing Features
The stern lower Bollards were reinforced by the WestBay factory to easily and safely support the towing the current owner’s 32’ 10,000lb RIB powerboat. These bollards have an even higher towing capacity than 10k lbs. Videos are available of towing underway. It works great and was done at significant cost at the factory in 2018.
Also added to support towing at the WestBay factory were cleats to port and starboard so that the boat could be easily and safely tied alongside SeaSon. The cleats added are the same as those already along the sides of the boat for tying up to the dock. The result is that all cleats all look the same and have the same strength ratings as used for tying to the dock. This way, side tying various length vessels is easier and safer.

For experienced boaters, we all know that when you buy a boat it is always going to need something. This is inevitable. But I would invite you to take a close look at how SeaSon has been upgraded and to review the binder of maintenance records and receipts. The level of improvements and maintenance that has been done preventively and proactively to improve the boating experience is reassuring and of great benefit to the next owner. Compared to other models and available boats, SeaSon ticks nearly all the boxes for features and condition in a yacht of this size, year and price point.
If you are not familiar with the WestBay line of boats, ask around and read the reviews. You will find that their reputation for build quality, seaworthiness and design has made it one of the preeminent boating brands for Pacific Northwest yachting. When you go aboard and compare the WestBay 68 to there competitors you will see why it became and remains one of the most popular models available. SeaSon is a fantastic WestBay 68 at a terrific value.
