Builders Remarks:

The Seaward 23 will appeal to a couple or small family requiring a craft for safe comfortable coastal cruising.  Seaward boats are generally the first choice of professional mariners and experienced yachtsmen who understand the importance of a well designed and constructed craft, that has stood the test of time.

Broker’s Comments:

“This Seaward 23 was UK owned until 2012. She has had very light use with the present owner (about six weeks a year). “Linnet” is well presented and her engines are running sweetly.”
