The Seaward brand is synonymous with the iconic pilot boat styling which has become a common sight the world over. The bigger sister popular Seaward 23 and Seaward 25 the Seaward 29 originates from the TT Boat Designs stable; responsible for many of the larger Nelson designs. A robust, round bilged, semi-displacement hull shape provided the sea keeping abilities for which these designs are famous; making them popular with those sailors making the move from sail to motor.

The Seaward 29 offers considerably more living space than her smaller sisters making her ideally suited to use as a coastal cruiser. With a double bunk forward, galley, separate heads compartment and wheelhouse with saloon seating. The addition of the cockpit tent and cockpit cushions creating additional living space aft.
