The Seaward Nelson 27 is a new addition to the range that has found favour for many years with discerning motorboat users and ex sailors alike. The 27 has a longer wheelhouse than the Seaward 25 and a longer hull with a built in transom platform. It shares the impeccable sea boat capability and handling of the other models. Twin diesel inboard engines with V drive gearboxes and shaft drives are standard on this craft, now with the Yanmar 4JH common rail 110Hp engines.
The engines are installed completely independently of each other, each with their own fuel tank and electrical system. The deep 3/4 length keel with twin rudders and contra-rotating propellers make simple work of negotiating the most difficult berth with this craft that will rotate in its own length when one engine is put astern and the other ahead. This amazing manoeuvrability is not just the result of having two engines but is the result of a combination of many other factors unique on a craft of this size and type.
