New Seaway Boats
Seaway Boats was founded by Harry Farmer back in the 1970’s. They built up quite a dealer network and their downeast-style boats were a staple along the entire East coast. Seaway and Harry took a hiatus thru most of the 90’s and reappeared in 2001 working out of a new facility in Oxford, ME. Seaways re-emergence started out with the redesigned 21’ hard chine hull and quickly worked up to their current line up of 18’ to 24’ models. With their downeast flare, wide beam and handsome woodwork Seaway was back. Seaway was acquired by Eastern Boats, Inc., who recognized the boat line represented the same values as theirs while offering different models and features. Seaway Boats and their downeast tradition will be around a long time serving customers both new and old.
The beautiful 27 Seafarer provides a 10′ beam, a gracefully-flared bow, and a hard-chine hull that rises easily onto plane with twin 150-hp four-stroke outboards on an Armstrong bracket. Even so, this new model retains the soft-riding characteristics at useful speeds for which Seaway & Eastern boats are known. Below decks, a forward V-berth converts to a settee with table, while an enclosed head offers a shower. A mid-berth under the helm deck offers additional sleeping capacity or storage. A flatscreen TV for the cabin is standard. The helm deck provides a galley-up aft of the helm seat, opposite a double forward-facing companion seat, with a double lounge seat and an optional aft facing cooler seat to port.
Seaway's 24' Sport center console is not only beautiful, it is a truly versatile platform both in terms of performance and build flexibility. It is currently in service in Maine as Harbormaster, Fire & Police vessels. It can be purchased as a simple open skiff design or can be outfitted as coastal fishing rig capable of inshore and offshore duty providing comfort and excellent fuel efficiency.
Seaway’s 18’ Sportsman with its wide beam exceptional looks and 100% composite construction makes it an ideal choice. The Sportsman 18’ will run 30+ MPH with a 70HP 4-Stroke outboard and be on plane at less than 10MPH. The 18’ Sportsman delivers unbelievable fuel efficiency and is light enough to tow with most vehicles.
