Greg Allen of Yacht Masters NW, and Paul Zimmer and Ryan Parker, co-owners of S3 Maritime are pleased to announce the merger of these two well-established Seattle yacht outfitter and repair companies. The combined entity will operate as S3 Maritime.

Yacht Masters NW and S3 Maritime are each known for providing high tech services to the recreational and commercial yacht market. Both bring unique skills sets to the newly merged company. S3 is known for its wide range of maritime expertise while Yacht Masters offers a rigging department and custom fibreglass construction department.

S3’s clients consist of a mix of commercial and recreational customers, while Yacht Masters supplies custom, state-of-the-art and fully-integrated electronic packages for larger recreational vessels.

Yacht Masters has been located on Lake Union for the last four decades while S3 has been located just inside the Locks on the Lake Washington Ship Canal for the last nine years. The two companies have consolidated their workforces and facilities to better serve their growing markets. Yacht Masters will be relocating to S3 Maritime’s modern, 18,000 square-foot facility in Salmon Bay, just west of Fisherman’s Terminal. The location also has convenient moorage for vessels up to 100-plus feet.

S3 Maritime now has a team of 48 employees, making it one of the largest yacht outfitters in the Pacific Northwest.
