Visit the new face of WESMAR at 2018’s Pacific Marine Expo!

Woodinville, WA – 10 November 2018 — WESMAR’s new president, Roger Fellows, is inviting all current customers, and prospective users, to visit booth 933 to learn about the changes taking place at the company under new ownership, and the technical developments making an impact on profits for fishermen. 

Their flagship Dual Stabilized Beam sonar, the HD860, will be on display. The HD860 lets you run the transducer in two different modes; a narrow beam searches long range in searchlight fashion, while you can use a wide beam to bottom type the sea floor ahead. It’s a dramatic and very effective tool for fishing, being deployed with high success by captains in Dutch Harbor, the Washington, Oregon and California coasts, and as far south as Mexico. 

“The HD860 is just one of the money-making pieces of gear for vessel owners that we’ll be demonstrating,” said Bryan Thiemann of WESMAR. Other significant products fishermen will be able to see and learn about are the company’s trawl sonars and powerful stainless steel counter rotating dual prop bow thrusters. 

A local Seattle company, WESMAR brings more than five decades of marine design and manufacturing experience to Marine Expo. It has provided widely respected commercial grade equipment to both private and government operations around the world. Its network of customer support includes over 350 trained service personnel, dealers, and distributors. To them, plus thousands of vessel owners and operators around the world, the WESMAR brand means reliable and rugged gear that helps keep their business running smoothly. 

Seattle Pacific Marine Expo takes place November 18-20 this year at the CenturyLink Field Event Center, 800 Occidental Ave S. - Seattle, WA 98134. WESMAR is located in Booth 933.


WESMAR’s new HD860 Dual Beam Scanning Sonar provides unbeatable bottom discrimination, and can easily detect weak targets other sonar’s cannot.

The HD860 is shown here scanning ahead 500 meters, detecting hard bottom that could damage the net.
