Swiftsure Yachts Moves up the Street

Swiftsure Yachts has moved north on Lake Union about 200 yards, to 2540 Westlake Avenue North.

The move provides Swiftsure Yachts with additional office and moorage space while remaining in the convenient neighborhood at the north end of Seattle’s Lake Union. “We love the location. It’s easily accessible by boat or car, and it’s close to the boatyards and Ship Canal,” explains Managing Partner Ryan Helling.


The location is also steeped in Lake Union history. The waterfront is where Dave LeClercq put out hundreds of Bill Garden-designed gillnetters and seiners. Swiftsure’s new offices, in fact, are in the building Dave LeClercq called home for several years.

Dave LeClercq’s Commercial Marine Construction Company, and some of the 1000-plus boats he built for the Alaskan fishing fleet. Circa 1960?

Swiftsure’s new offices are open Monday through Friday 9-5 and 10-4 on Saturdays. Ample parking is available immediately in front of the offices.
