Pros:
Cons:

I cant wait until next summer.....does that tell you anything? My first mate and I really enjoy this vessel. She is respomsive, and trustworthy. She handles storms as well as calms in stride. She is predictive, and roomy for a family to spend a summer cruise on. She is the prettiest gal at the dance, but yet doesn't blow the budget. As a far as speed, this summer she made a Catalina Tall Rig a beliver on her prowness and downwind performance....bye bye kitty kitty. The dealer support is awesome, the factory surport very responsive. I recommend this vessel. For docking purposes she is a 27' LOA. Bravos to Hake Yacht in Steawart Florida.

Pros: Appearance, roominess, layout, shoal draft
Cons: shoal draft, performance

I've had my Seaward 25 for three seasons now. The boat is comfortable when driven by some breeze, cutting through power boat wakes and Long Island Sound chop with a dry ride and little pounding. Reef early, because the leeway with a 25" keel can be significant. Cockpit is roomy, fittings are of a decent quality. enough teak to look pretty, without being a job. Eight stainless steel portlites, plus a big hatch over the v-berth makes for an airy interior. Built in head and holding tank. Two-burner Origo alcohol stove. 8hp outboard keeps things simple. Had a failed gudgeon this past summer, which resulted in the loss of the rudder. Hake Yachts was able to make me up a new beefier ruddder within a couple of weeks. Pretty good service from the manufacturer for a 19 year old boat!
