The Schooner Seaward

We have purchased a new vessel, an 82' steel staysail schooner. Seaward is well-designed for safety, is spacious below decks with 19 berths, and is a fine sailer with an arrangement perfectly suited to our programs. 

Vessel Specifications

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.

Please note: AIS information is usually received within a range of 15-40 nautical miles, depending on the height of the receiving station. If a map of the Mediterranean Sea is pictured above, it means Seaward is out of range of the nearest receiving station. We're probably sailing to the Farallon Islands or some other destination beyond the Golden Gate. Check back again later to track the vessel's position!
