The all-new Seaward Nelson 42 E16 motor yacht with aft cockpit.

Dateline: September 15, 2016. Southampton Boat Show:

The Boat Development Co Ltd, builders of Seaward boats, is launching its new flagship model, the all-weather Nelson 42 motor yacht on Marina berth M122 at the Southampton Boat Show.  Based on the same hull used to build pilot boats and service launches, she shares many of the commercial components that make these boats so admired by their professional operators.

Bounder, the first of these new Seaward 42 Motor Yachts, is an aft-cockpit version ordered by an experienced owner, whose previous boats have included a Seaward 35 and large sailing yachts. He plans extensive short-handed cruising and has opted for a single cabin arrangement with a large wheelhouse incorporating a well-appointed day area, a central dinette and galley, and master stateroom forward to maximise on living space.  An aft cabin version of the Seaward 42 is also available, featuring a master ensuite cabin below a raised aft deck with a second external helm position.

Bounder is powered by twin Cummins QSB 6.7 litre engines, developing 425hp each, giving her a 26 knot top-speed. Her impressive specification includes both a Gyro-stabiliser and Humphree Interceptor active trim control systems to minimise motion and enhance even further the capabilities of this remarkable all-weather vessel.

Anyone wanting a traditionally built, go-anywhere motor yacht, tailored to suit their exact requirements should contact The Boat Development Co Ltd. 

Bounder will be on display at this year’s Southampton Boat Show on berth M122 between 16 – 25th September
