"To do our job we need different types of boats. These can be divided into two categories: boats for good weather and boats for bad weather.  Based on our experience the Nelsons are for sure the pilot boats best suited to rough seas.  Their reliability and technical features allow us to go out in all weather conditions.  Throughout the construction of the two pilot boats, Seaward has been very correct and professional.  All of our requests and doubts have been studied and clarified with seriousness and competence."

"Now that I've had my Seaward 25 for a month and have had the chance to use her around the waters at Dartmouth, I thought I would let you know how delighted I am with Cool Blue II. Despite the adverse weather, she handled the conditions impeccably and lived up to the reputation for which Seaward Boats are renowned."
