Brightlingsea Pilots order new Seaward 29 Pilot Boat


published on 27 May 2021 75 -

Brightlingsea Harbour – a mixed leisure and commercial port on the East Coast of England
has recently signed contracts with Seaward to have a new pilot boat built, The demands of Pilot duties as well as working as a patrol boat and harbour launch, and the sea conditions that can occur in the area made the Nelson hulled Seaward the natural choice of vessel.

Owen Evans, Deputy Harbour Master at Brightlingsea said “The Seaward 29 will  fulfil the need for small commercial ports such as Brightlingsea to viably continue acts of pilotage without the need to spend the great deal of money required on a larger 50ft+ version that is industry standard for larger deep water ports.”
 
The Seaward Nelson 29 pilot boat, like all of Seaward’s pilot boat range, retains the time-tested and world proven qualities of the refined Nelson hull form that is unrivalled in its sea-keeping and handling abilities and to which many users return repeatedly.
 
Seaward produce a commercial range of Nelson design craft from 19’ to 46’
