Yacht Charter Guide to Seattle

Seattle lies on the Pacific Coast close to the border with Canada in Washington State. This is, of course, not the Washington where the White House can be found, which is Washington DC.

The city of Seattle, being close to Canada, has a more temperate climate than it’s neighbours further down the coast, so wrapping up warm in the winter is pretty sensible. With regard to recognising the city, it is probably best known for its space needle, built for the 1962 World’s Fair and such a familiar sight. So familiar in fact that the TV show Frasier, which was set in Seattle, used the outline of it in its titles, thereby clearly stating it’s Seattle setting.

With lots of waterways Seattle is a very popular Yacht Charter destination of USA citizens.
