The all-new Seaward Nelson 27 E18 motor cruiser with aft cockpit.

Dateline Feb 12, 2018. Cowes: Tooling is now in production for the first all-weather Seaward 27 E18 motor cruiser.  Her pedigree has evolved from the well-proven Seaward 25 and she boasts a larger wheelhouse and longer hull with in-built transom platform.   As always at Seaward, the new owner is involved at every stage of planning their new boat.


With a top speed of 22 knots and a great cruising speed of 18, coupled with the excellent sea-keeping that she shares with the rest of the Seaward range, this capable and sturdy little vessel is equally at home coastal cruising or hopping across the Channel for dinner, even when the weather turns.


The Seaward 27 is remarkably manoeuverable; close quarters boat handling is made easy by her twin shaft drive engines, deep keel and unique hull design.   Visibility is really good all round and the ergonomic sit/stand helm position with it’s adjustable wheel, footrest and seat make handling the boat in a busy marina a pleasure.

Installation of the reliable and tough twin Yanmar 110hp common rail diesel engines with independent fuel and electrical systems, provides reliability and peace of mind for those longer offshore passages.

Helm Position – with fully adjustable wheel, seat and foot rest


Life aboard the new 27 will be a pleasure. Careful design and planning has led to the layout options you can see on the right, click on any one to see the full sized drawing. The wheelhouse is long enough to accommodate a pilot berth without compromising the ability to have a proper navigators seat and chart/storage locker. The galley, fitted with the option of a neat ceramic diesel-fired hob or two burner gas hob, a stainless steel sink and 240v microwave cooker as standard, can be fitted in the wheelhouse or below in the well thought out forward cabin. The forward cabin has two V berths, a table that also acts as an infill to convert the berth into a large double. There is a fully enclosed heads to port.


The self-draining cockpit gives another dimension to the Seaward 27. The optional all-over canopy creates a comfortable living space with luxurious cushions available for the cockpit seats (under which there is easy access to the engines). A neat transom gate leads to the aft platform.


Seaward Boats are a unique and remarkable breed of ‘go-anywhere’ craft. The new Seaward 27 is no exception.


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