Seaward Slipper 17, 1984

Beautifully maintained classic in turnkey condition. Must be seen to be appreciated. This boat is in excellent condition and has been lovingly maintained. Fiberglas hull and cabin in immaculate condition. Beautiful bright work. Dry cabin with full cloth cushions that look and smell new. Looks as good in person as it does in pictures. Boats this age and condition don't come along that often. No work or investment required. Much more invested than selling price. Hoping to find someone that will appreciate her as much as me. Retiring and trading the seaways for the highways.

She's very safe and stable with 425 pounds of lead ballast, high cockpit coamings and a big beam giving you a real sense of security. It sails like a much bigger boat and is much faster than it looks. It can be easily pulled by a smaller vehicle with a 6 cylinder engine.
