There's also a pdf with spec's.


As I suspected, just from the look of her, she is a retired Norwegian rescue vessel. Others I've seen have twins with a single VP prop. Much better set up than twin screws IMO.
and enough wealthy friends to go cruising with you for years.

This big Seaton was a repo through national liquidators about six years ago, I guess it's still for sale with the original pics from then, I really like it.

another Seaton, I really like this boat, if it had a queen master berth and a portugese bridge and single screw I'd be on it.

Foot for foot, that’s the longest list of spec’s and descriptions I’ve ever seen.

That Ross Seaton Long Range Trawler is beautiful. I could not see what protection the two props had. The hull shape would stabilise beautifully with paravanes, too.

And a pantry...

I would think the blunt forward edge would create some forward motion resistance by having to have that edge "plow" through the water. Would it not be more efficient to have forward edge design similar to the sharp trailing edge design... so it cuts through water??

Own a piece of history....really?

What can I say? Well, it is ONLY $189K. Guess it is for a dude who wants to be different.

If I was spending $600k on a boat I would want some active stabilization. I question weather those big fixed fins would give enough stability for me and my weak stomach.

Maybe for beaching? I see a large lift muffler, is that for generator? I see the cat is keel cooled and you can see the dry exhaust wrapped and going up, but where is the dry stack for exhaust leaving the boat?

I think so, especially when you see the keel; it must flare out to 2' wide at the bottom, sort of like a box keel. There are also plates welded to the bottom of the bilge keels, presumably to reduce the keels tendency to knife into the beach. You'd have to pick your spot to dry out carefully with a boat that big & heavy!

What interest me the most is Yacht + Sails. I'm currently saving money hoping I can buy this next year or a year after.

Sure there is. Might take a few decades, but a lot of sailboaters end up in a comfortable, dry, warm pilothouse

Yeah that boat needs a big warm/cooled pilothouse and fewer sails, then it would be perfect! [emoji6]

A homeric, in-your-face, unapologetic, brutish approach to marinedom if I ever saw one. And with a 5’8” draft with outer wings like that, I’d hate to be a manatee or a crab pot. She’s an outside boat for sure.
