2017 Seaward 29

Beaulieu, Hampshire


Seaward 29 Alacrity was launched in 2017. She has always been maintained in ‘as new’ condition. She is the ‘galley-up’ version, boasting comprehensive navigational and domestic equipment, making her a great coastal cruiser. Probably the most sea kindly vessel in its size range, the Seaward 29 is designed and built to be enjoyable to drive even when the going gets a little rough. She is safe, practical, easy to handle and well suited to extended cruising. She complies with Recreational Craft Directive requirements for operation in wind speeds up to force 8 and wave heights up to 4 metres. Regularly cleaned, polished, antifouled and serviced, Alacrity is only available as her owners have a new Seaward 35 in build.
