United Yacht Transport’s Captain Charlie Johnson to Judge This Year’s Argosy Christmas Ship Festival


FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., November 30, 2015 — Captain Charlie Johnson, West Coast Sales Director of United Yacht Transport, will be on the panel of judges at the annual Argosy Christmas Ship Festival in Seattle. United Yacht Transport, the North American leader in boat transport, is proud to have one of its own as part of such a traditional event.

Held in Seattle, Washington, the Argosy Christmas Ship Festival has been a Northwest tradition since 1949. This year, the festival will run from November 27th through December 23rd. On the evening of December 18th, the Parade of Boats will take place. During this event, local small boat owners decorate their boats festively for the holiday season and participate in an organized floating parade. The parade will begin at 7:45pm and the coveted Christmas ship will perform at the Fisherman’s Terminal (starting point), Fremont Cut (middle), and Westward and Little Gull (finale). The Christmas ship will contain a choir that will be performing holiday tunes, along with a slew of passengers who have the opportunity to meet and read a story with Santa Claus, participate in crafts and other activities, and much more!

Captain Charlie Johnson will be aiding in the selection of this year’s trophy winners. The categories to be awarded first place titles this year include, but are not limited to: Best In Show, Best Holiday Theme Boat, Most Christmas Spirit, and Vessel With Most Holiday Lights. The parade schedule and information on how to sign up to participate in the festival can be found here.
