Bellingham Yachts is where your boating fun begins!
Dean and Donna Ouilette first purchased this small brokerage firm in June of 1984. Several weeks later, Dean’s older brother, Nick joined them. Over the years the company has grown into a full service yacht sales and charter operation with twelve employees. Our success is based upon a sincere desire to build and maintain long term relationships with our customers. In doing so, we have learned over the years that in taking good care of our customers, they will in turn take care of our company.
Our highly experienced group of brokers, shipwrights, detailers, skippers, and support staff are here to serve ALL of your boating needs. Whether you need help finding the right boat for your intended usage, servicing the vessel you currently own, or booking a charter to go explore the Great Northwest, let us prove that we are the best.

The Ouilette Family Welcomes You to Bellingham Yachts
Our perspective on the pleasure boat industry may be distinctly different from that of other yacht sales company owners. We have traveled around the world as deck and engineering officers on various merchant ships, seen the power of the open ocean, and learned that there is no substitute for quality and professionalism when dealing with the rigors of the sea.
Simply No Substitutes
At Bellingham Yachts you can expect service second to none! We take pride in what we do and make every effort to excel at:
QUALITY: We only sell, service, and charter vessels of the highest quality, with materials and building techniques that are second to none. In our 32 years in business, we have never had a customer express regret for having purchased quality.
HONESTY: It's really simple. We treat customers the same way that we would expect to be treated if we were making such a large and significant purchase. This is why we want to learn all about how and where you plan to use your boat before making any recommendations.
SERVICE: Years ago, we heard way too many stories of how boat owners were mistreated when it in came to maintenance and repairs to their vessels. We know that if owning a boat is not fun, people will grow weary of it and leave the lifestyle. So, we remove the hassles by providing clear objectives including costs and timelines of completion. A poorly maintained vessel is no match for a storm at sea.
KNOWLEDGE: We have spent twelve collective years at sea and been continuous owner-operators of this business for the past thirty-two years. There is no substitute for experience.
LOCATION: We are more of your small town type of people. We want to know you personally and share in the joys of your boating lifestyle. Bellingham is located at the front door of the San Juan and Canadian Gulf Islands. The Alaska ferry's southern terminus is here making the 600 mile trip to Ketchikan weekly. Mount Baker and Whistler are within an easy drive too. Our airport is serviced with non-stop flights to Seattle, Portland, Denver, California, Arizona, Hawaii, and Nevada. Many of our owners enjoy using their boats here as second homes. Why waste time and fuel traveling from Seattle on your boat when you can start right here? And, the parking is readily available and always free!
Starting in February of 2017, we are opening a second location within the new Waterfront Place development at the Port of Everett (Waterfront-Place.com). You will find the same great experience and services in dealing with our company that you have come to expect in Bellingham, it will simply be closer and move convenient for our greater Seattle area customers! Come visit us at our new home at the Port of Everett!
We would like to thank you for considering our services and we welcome the opportunity to serve you.
The Ouilette Family
