Seaward Nelson 39 – Owners Report

I have been privileged to own five Seaward boats over the past 36 years and have come to appreciate their fine seakeeping properties in many thousands of miles of cruising.

When the time came for me to consider selling my 4th boat, a Seaward 35, I talked to Seaward and they told me that they were designing a boat based on the Nelson 42 Mark II hull and would I be interested.

This gave me a unique opportunity to be involved in design from the early days.

Seaward Marine was responsible for the engineering side of things, which they are very good at; I could influence the internal design from the aspect of skipper and crew.

My priorities were:

  • Comfortable accommodation for four people.
  • Generous stowage space for clothes and personal effects with hanging space and plenty of draws.
  • Spacious Galley with large fridge, microwave, gas hob and oven.
  • Comfortable Heads with separate Shower.
  • Large refuse disposal bin and separate bottle bank.
  • Comfortable Helm and Navigator seats with good visibility.
  • Modern electronic navigation system with large screen plotter.
  • Variable speed Bow & Stern Thrusters to give ease of handling.

My first influence in design was with the cockpit. The side decks were removed and the cockpit expanded to use the full available width, the rear access gate was positioned to make the best use of space. This made a great social area with comfortable seating with excellent stowage beneath.

Seaward for their part engineered a very fine boat. A great deal of attention was spent on soundproofing to make the wheelhouse very quiet. The fuel system has twin fuel filters with full cross-over facilities to allow fuel to be taken from and returned to either tank.

I have cruised extensively in the Channel Islands area, North and South Brittany, the South Coast of England and the Thames Estuary. Most passages have been with a crew however I have made several trips to France and Cross Channel single-handedly.

“Magic” has performed beyond my expectations and coped with all the sea conditions that have presented themselves. She is a very fine-looking boat and she proudly displays her pedigree; she always receives compliments wherever she is berthed.
