Seaward 29 ‘Wizard of Bembridge’ SOLD

Seaward 29 ‘Wizard of Bembridge’ SOLD








This powerful semi-displacement motor cruiser was built in 1995. Three owners from new, this attractive example of the Seaward 29 has been meticulously maintained, equipment updated and all servicing carried out regularly. ‘Wizard’ is very well equipped for cruising and has all the usual navigational aids. Rarely available on the market so early viewing recommended. The capability of crossing from the Solent to Cherbourg in well under 4 hours will appeal to yachtsmen wishing to change from sail to a highly respected offshore motor cruiser.

Remarks: The Seaward 29’s have proven seakeeping qualities and are probably the best seakeeping vessels in this size range. Although capable of 28 knots with 230 hp engines the enormous amount of reserve power ensures ultra smooth running and very low noise levels when cruising at 15-20 knots. ‘Wizard of Bembridge’ has been kept ashore each winter for minimum of 3-4 months.
