The Boat Development Company, based at Cowes Isle of Wight ,has just launched the new Seaward Nelson 23 E15 motor cruiser model.
Outwardly she looks very similar to the previous model. Same rugged construction, same Nelson sea-kindly hull, and the same sturdy wheelhouse and well-protected cockpit to keep you dry. The big differences are the numerous detailed improvements within the boat.
The ‘E 15’ within this Seaward’s name stands for ‘Evolution’ and the launch year of this new model. She is the product of a programme of continuous improvement that has been adopted across the entire range of these Nelson motor cruisers so that details and methods of construction are constantly being updated to incorporate best practice within the industry.
The big differences within the 23 E 15 start with a new advanced steering position, which adapts easily to allow any size helm to stand or sit at the controls.
A change in the companionway now allows tall people to walk into the main cabin without ducking their head. This much-improved double berth cabin with dinette table, now has a new galley arrangement with a diesel burning hob, and a very comfortable heads compartment.
Just like her bigger sisters and professional pilot boats that Seaward also produce, the twin engine installations within these boats all have independent drive lines including fuel supply, which give them their coverted reliabilty and manoeuvrability.
With a cruising speed of 16 knots and a range of 100 nautical miles, this Seaward will get you across the Channel to France in time for lunch – and get you home again, whatever the weather.
