Bell Harbor Marina will host TrawlerFest.

TrawlerFest will take place this year April 23-27 at Bell Harbor Marina in Seattle.

There will be a variety of boats from Grand Banks, Kadey-Krogen, Nordhavn, North Pacific, Nordic Tug, American Tug, Ranger Tug and Cutwater in the water for attendees to inspect. Sam Devlin will also have a one-off design on-hand. In addition to in-water exhibits, vendors will have accessories and gear on display.

Participants can attend more than 25 seminars including one on diesel engines with noted marine systems expert Nigel Calder and another on boat handling with Capt. Linda Lewis. Others include medical preparation, boat buying, passagemaking and destination discussions on Alaska and Mexico. The seminars are intended to make cruising safer, less expensive and more fun, according to the event organizers.

TrawlerFest has three locations, with the others being Stuart, Fla., and Baltimore.
