The Seaward 25 is a popular semi-displacement motor cruiser, deservedly sought after thanks to its excellent sea keeping, practical layout and high quality of build. Rarely available, Seafarer is an extremely good example of her class and has clearly been well looked after. Her impressive specification includes the desirable upgraded twin Yanmar 100hp engines, electric windlass, radar, autopilot, full cockpit enclosure and more, she is almost certainly one of the best available!
