  • Sail Area: 165 S.F. (aprox), Mast height: 25'

    Trailer: Fully galvanized with all new tires, bearings, seals, wiring, lights, jack.

    Owned by an "old salt" who's retiring from sailing.

  • custom cut cockpit foam cushions in closed-cell foam
  • Sleeps four with full cushions, folding table, potti.
  • new sail cover and custom made snap-on Sunbrella hatch cover
  • All hatches and woodwork have three coats of Cetol finish
  • motor mount with like-new 5hp Mercury long-shaft outboard with very low time and in like-new condition with full F-N-R gearbox
  • ports have been removed and resealed - boat is totally dry.
  • self bailing cockpit
  • Tiller extension and whisker pole included
  • excellent cockpit protection and sized like one from a 25-footer.
  • Trailer is fully galvanized and refurbished. All new bunks, electrics, jack, tires, bearings, etc.
  • Anchor, rode and line included
  • Mast can be raised single-handed., Mast carriers included.
  • This boat can be easily pulled by a small car with a 4 cylinder motor, I've pulled it with a Toyota Camry with a four cylinder with zero problems.
  • I'll even include a set of "mirror-extenders" for your use to see around the hull.
  • Don't misjudge this boat, It's much faster then it appears and points well. I've taken many a boat that was much larger in size. She's very safe with 425 pounds of lead ballast, high cockpit combings and a big beam - gives you a real sense of security!
  • Keel is very shallow but long with "lifting" ability - a beautiful design.
  • I'm selling her due to my age and arthritis. The price represents a small fraction of what I've invested and I hope to find someone that will appreciate this pretty girl.
  • Check "Seaward Slipper 17" on Google and check out the reports - you'll be pleased.

    Boat is at my house in Port Arthur, Texas, ready to go.
