This very nice example of the Seaward 35 is the vessel featured in the Motor Boats Monthly test showing photographs of the boat ploughing through overfalls off St Martins Point (Guernsey).

With the central companionway layout, it can provide six berths and plenty of seating. In the wheelhouse with its KAB suspension seats is the well laid out helm station with a comprehensive selection of navigation equipment.

Forward of this is the galley and dinette area along with the heads compartment and owner’s cabin with plenty of stowage lockers. All interior joinery is in traditional teak along with Alcantara head and side linings and well executed interior upholstery.

This tough, semi-displacement vessel has been exceptionally well maintained with a detailed service and maintenance history from the current owner, and is extensively equipped for long distance cruising in comfort and safety.
