Professional Ship and Yacht Repair to 300 Ft. Since 1946

Pacific Fishermen is a full service shipyard established in 1946 to service tugboats, passenger cruise, charter boats and yachts as well as the traditional fishing vessels.

Located on Ballard’s Salmon Bay just east of the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks on the freshwater side, Pacific Fishermen continues its rich heritage, with fine craftsmanship and a dedicated workforce.

PFI Marine Electric maintains a local mobile base, outfitted with all the materials required to effectively perform electrical repairs in the Puget Sound region at local shipyards and dockside facilities. PFI Marine Electric worked closely with the owner of the 1968 Marco 94’ series king crabber Kevleen K to retrofit a NightWatch shipboard alarm system. PFI Marine Electric is the local dealer for NightWatch monitoring systems, and has several recent installations including the Northern Marine yachts After Eight and Bella Bri and the Pierce County ferry Christine Anderson.

Today, Pacific Fishermen Shipyard and PFI Marine Electric are still heavily involved in the fishing industry with full support in Dutch Harbor, while bringing their expertise to the commercial passenger, workboat and large yacht sectors with drydocking and repowering to meet USCG requirements and new stringent international MARPOL and EPA emission regulations.
