Based in Port Townsend Washington and serving all of Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands, Western Workboats LLC is dedicated to providing dependable and versatile marine services both on and off the water. From towing boats or conducting marine research charters to marine fabrication and systems installation, we can help.


We are a family owned and operated company and are small enough to keep costs low by working wisely and efficiently. We have a substantial amount of experience in marine industries from towing and salvage to vessel construction and repair.


Western Workboats builds on a foundation of over 30 years of shipwright expertise to provide safe and effective vessels. Our crew is fully licensed and insured and draws from over 40 years of experience working on the water from Puget Sound to SE Alaska. 


Tell us what you need and we will help make it happen.
