The Seaward 35 is a development from the proven Nelson 35 hull. A semi displacement cruiser with superb integrity and capability.
This is a serious offshore motor boat designed & built for purpose. If you are coming from a sailing background or want a 'bullet proof' & North European weather proof little ship, please call us to arrange an inspection.
Launched first in 2006 and light use since (less than 340hrs) on twin 370hp Yanmar engines (the large engine option). Many extras from build including 2 heads!, cockpit roof, full cockpit tent, leather upholstery, diesel heating system, twin KAB full suspension helm seats, Raymarine C125 chartplotter/radar system (new 2012), inverter.....and much more.
We look forward to welcoming you to Kip Marina. Boats are available for viewing on pontoons, hard standing (ladder access), on moorings and in some cases further afield.

The Seaward 35 - is an updated design based on the well-proven Nelson 35 pilot boat hull. Seaward commissioned the Nelson designer to create a completely new superstructure layout that would enable the interior of the hull to be utilised for the needs of the cruising yachtsman. The end result is a vessel that not only provides sleeping accommodation for up to six, but she is also amazingly easy to manoeuvre and moor with only two people on board.
After testing the Seaward 35 in overfalls off Guernsey, the Motorboats Monthly boat test confirmed the seakeeping 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’.
Designer: Arthur Mursell, TT Boat Designs, Isle of Wight.
Builder: Seaward Marine Ltd, Isle of Wight Year: 2005.
Based on the proven Nelson 35 hull. Very strong construction.
3/4 length keel providing exceptional directional stability at speed & manoeuvring.
Large 'D' fendering.
Teak interior joinery to a very high standard.
Internally moulded fuel tanks with inspection hatches.
Extended cockpit roof provides full tented aft deck area.
Access to the wheelhouse is from aft through a single hinged door. The wheelhouse has good all round vision and is arranged with the helm console to starboard and the navigator’s position to port. The console area in front of the navigator is flat and will accommodate a folded chart for navigation under way. A navigator’s locker is built into the console shelf.
There is an 'L' shaped lounge area aft of the navigator’s seat. The area beneath the settee is available for general stowage and has front opening lockers in the bunk front. A cabinet is fitted opposite with front opening lockers and a separate stowage locker for glasses, above is a shelf. There is also a locker in the base of the helm seat.
The forward cabin (or owner’s cabin) is designed with a pair of 'V' berths fitted with fully sprung mattresses. The layout includes a hanging locker to port, two stowage lockers on the inboard side of the berths, a built in stowage locker at the head of each berth and shelves outboard to port and starboard above the berths.
Access to the forward cabin is through a passageway between the shower room and toilet. The doors are fitted in such a way that they are dual purpose with latches to hold them open as well as closed. With both doors latched in the open position the forward cabin is completely separated from the dinette area each with separate access to the toilet and shower.
Chain locker -
A watertight bulkhead in the forward cabin with a watertight hatch gives access to the chain locker.
Port Heads -
The port heads is fitted with a wash basin with hot and cold pressurised water system with single lever combined mixer tap. There are three storage lockers.
Forecabin Starboard Heads -
The compartment is to starboard and includes a wash hand basin with hot and cold water supply via a single lever tap which extends to be used as a shower. There are three storage lockers.
Galley dinette -
The no gas galley is in the mid section of the craft. The galley includes -
There is generous stowage for galley equipment and provisions. The main dining table is situated opposite the galley with ample seating for four persons on a pair of forward and aft facing double seats. There is storage under the seats and a front opening locker with two draws in the side of the forward seat. Stowage lockers are fitted outboard for general items and there is an open fronted locker for books or general stowage. The area below the table is on a raised plinth.
When required, the dining area will convert to form a double berth. Lowering the table and placing the backrest cushions on top make this up. The table can be utilised for chart work when planning those far off voyages.
Two independent banks of twin deep cycle 12-volt batteries are installed. One battery bank is reserved for the port engine starting and some electrical items that are only used when under way, whilst the other battery bank is reserved for the starboard engine and also provides power for all the lighting and domestic equipment.This arrangement makes best use of the power available from the engine alternators for recharging. In the event one battery bank is flat when you come to start the engines, the whole system can be instantly put in parallel by a push button switch at the helm console. Immediately both engines are running the push button is released and the battery banks are returned to being independent. A Victron 1600watt/70amp inverter/charger system will provide 240 volts from the ships batteries for microwave and ring main when shore power is not available and will act as powerful charger when plugged into shore power.
Electrical equipment includes:
The Seaward 35 has a proper engine room that is self-contained below the wheelhouse sole. Easy access for routine checks and service is through a hinged hatch in the sole. The whole of the compartment is well insulated including under the engines. This compartment also contains the vessel's batteries and seawater filters. Ventilation for the engines is by a series of large GRP shell type vents fitted to the sides of the structure. Three engine room lights are provided; these are switched on/off from the helm switch panel.
Colour for the hull is Oxford blue with a white boot top and a white superstructure. Decks and cockpit sole are coated with grey non-slip deck paint.
The exterior of the vessel is in traditional Seaward/Nelson style with a 4″ size rubber ‘D’ fender fitted all round. The deck layout includes a heavy duty pulpit that extends to almost the aft end of the wheelhouse. The pulpit has a thick tubular top rail and a thinner tube at the mid height down each side.
A good size uncluttered foredeck and wide low profile side decks makes mooring up a safe and pleasurable experience on the Seaward 35.
The cockpit is fully self-draining and includes a GRP moulded U shaped seating area with cushions. The GRP seat bases have hinged lids for access to the stowage areas beneath. Entrance from the cockpit to the wheelhouse is by way of a heavy duty aluminium hinged door finished in white powder coating. There is a large under floor locker for general deck gear. The cockpit has a hard top moulded cover which forms part of the superstructure and is deep and safe for passages at sea.
