Seaward 35 ‘Peel Truant”  £149,500 VAT Paid


‘Peel Truant’ is the vessel featured in the now famous boat test photographs of the Seaward 35 ploughing through overfalls off St Martins Point (Guernsey). With the central companionway layout , this Seaward 35 can provide six comfortable berths and plenty of sociable seating. In the wheelhouse with its purposeful KAB suspensions 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 owners cabin with plenty of stowage lockers. All interior joinery is in traditional teak along with ivory Alcantara head and side linings and luxurious interior upholstery. This tough, semi-displacement craft is well equipped for long distance cruising in comfort and safety.

After testing the Seaward 35 in the overfalls off Guernsey, the Motor Boats Monthly boat test confirmed the sea-keeping qualities when they wrote: ‘The sea conditions through which we pushed the Seaward 35 would have forced most other boats of a similar size, and indeed many larger craft, down to a crawl. Worse, their occupants would have been turning green with seasickness or white with fright. For us these are perfect test conditions. Perfect that is if you are in a boat built for the job’.
