Additional information


Round bilge semi-displacement type with flared bow. Varnished teak spray rails and all around 4″ rubber D fendering compliment the purposeful looks of the craft and provide extra protection when going alongside. Standard colour is Blue.

Deck / Superstructure

This is a G.R.P. moulding with substantial gunwales and wide non-slip decks incorporating a bevelled toe rail. The superstructure has a large vertical flange that overlaps with a similar flange on the hull before being through bolted and laminated to the hull. Standard colour is White.

Engine Installation

Each engine has been independently installed with its own separate fuel tank and start battery. There are emergency back up connections built in – these are described elsewhere.

Everything about the engine installation is designed with safety and security in mind. The large size seacocks are fitted with external gratings to prevent things like plastic bags blocking the water flow. The seacocks are connected to the engines via large filter pots with see through lids. Smaller items of debris and weed that pass through the gratings can be spotted and removed from the pots before they are able to build up and cause a blockage.

The engine cooling water is discharged through the exhaust systems. The exhausts comprise of 5″ flexible hoses connected to Vetus silencers and then up under the side decks before going down to the exhaust outlet pipes. The exhaust outlet pipes exit in the waterline area on the hull side near the transom. The design of the exhaust layout ensures that the transom and boarding platform areas are kept free of exhaust residue and the exhaust gases are not drawn back into the cockpit area when the craft is under way.

Engine controls

Electronic single-lever engine controls are standard.


Two independent banks of 12-volt batteries are installed. One battery bank is reserved for the engine starting and some electrical items that are only used when under way, whilst the other battery bank is reserved for the lighting and domestic equipment. In the event one battery bank is flat when you come to start the engines, the whole system can be instantly put in parallel by a push button switch at the helm console.

A Victron inverter/charger is available as an option; this system will provide 240 volts from the ships batteries for microwave and ring main when shore power is not available and will act a powerful charger when plugged into shore power.

The Seaward 39 uses digital switching which brings all of the power and convenience of advanced home automation to your boat; it allows you to control onboard electrical and electronic systems like lighting, air-conditioning, navigation lights, wipers, horns, entertainment systems, security systems and much more from your network-connected multifunction display, smartphone or tablet.

Digital Switching replaces the standard mechanical circuit breakers and switches with a state-of-the-art digital power distribution. This system not only offers convenience and ease-of-use, it also delivers on the promise of seamless, reliable operation as well as simple and cost effective installation.
