Seaward N-40


Seaward Nelson, N-40 Pilot Boat

The Nelson, N-40 is perhaps the archetypal pilot boat, with over three hundred produced, providing sterling service, day in and day out, around the world. They are noted for their exceptionally soft ride, excellent handling in difficult sea conditions and for their predictable behaviour during ship boardings. They are built to Classification Society-approved drawings and are fitted-out to comply with the customer’s local flag approvals.

Today’s Seaward Nelson, N-40 Pilot Boats benefit from the decades of experience that the company has in the design and build of these specialist craft. Robustly built, well-fendered and produced with maintainability in mind, they provide their operators with the ideal tool for this particularly demanding job.

The Seaward Nelson, N-40 is available with a long or short wheelhouse, fixed or resiliently-mounted, with seating for 4 or 6, with a choice of forward or aft raked screens. Various engines options are available, providing operating speeds up to 25 knots.
