We have purchased a new vessel, an 82' steel staysail schooner. Seaward is well-designed for safety, is spacious below decks with 22 berths, and is a fine sailer with an arrangement perfectly suited to our programs. Be sure to check out our Fall Schedule for great sailing opportunities!
Seaward is an 82’ classic staysail schooner built in 1988 for both comfortable charters in protected waters and for rigorous offshore sailing. She is annually inspected and certified by the U.S. Coast Guard as a passenger vessel for voyages up to 200 miles offshore from Alaska to Panama. She has the highest possible stability rating — for exposed waters — and has a smooth and comfortable motion.
