Seward sailboats

Anyone have experience on Seward sailboats with the retracting keels. They appeal to me. Love the look, the build, twin rudders, etc. I currently own a 1990 Hunter legend 37.5 and anticipate chesapeake to bahamas to bvi type trips and back.

I love my current boat, but also really like the Seaward boats.

Re: Seward sailboats

Very expensive niche design. Whatever causes you to turn around for a last look before parting is the boat for you.

Re: Seward sailboats

I have a 24' Seaward and love most everything about her. The cabin is a nice size for me (I'm 5'2") but the sacrifice is being able to see over the cockpit while navigating from the cockpit without standing the whole time. Also, mine has some issues with holding water in the v-berth while the bilge pump is under the companionway. I don't understand why the water doesn't flow back to the bilge pump.

Re: Seward sailboats

I had the '87 24. Liked it a lot for coastal sailing. Bought a 2006 RK26 2 years ago. Cabin height better (I'm 5'9), keel control over bigger range, No problems. Haven't taken it offshore but feel very comfortable doing so. Great forum to search is on Trailer Those people have experience and very free with their advice and insight.
Good Luck

Re: Seward sailboats

I think he might be referring to the 46, since he already has a 37...

Re: Seward sailboats

I've got a Seaward 22 that I love for lake sailing. She won't go to weather very well with her shoal draft.
