I’ve checked out some of the cool things Seascape has come up with over the recent builds of their 27′ at the Annapolis Boat Show.
Here it comes …
The most stunning option is the new turquoise interior. Wait a moment, what good does interior colour do me?
It adds this massive Caribbean flair to the boat. Light reflecting on the cushions and doors creating a very happy, warm and relaxed atmosphere. Isn’t a happy sailor a better sailor, and sailing all about having fun?
The initial hard foam cushions have been replaced by 2 cm of hard foam + 5 cm of soft foam, going a lot easier on your bones when sleeping. Nice! Cushions for the aft berths are available as well now. Seascape 27 thus officially sleeps up to 6 sailors … I’d personally keep it at 4 though.
Staying with the topic, the settee lids, including the cushions of course, have been split in half. This provides easier access to the storage room below. Anything on the settee, including a sailor, can move over to the other half to access the lid. The shorter lid also makes it a lot easier to open, because lighter in weight.
Another small change that will have a huge impact is a strap they’ve installed in the “gas tank” compartment. The strap will keep the tank in place whilst sailing or motoring and allows for easy removal for refuelling. We used to put the tank down next to the engine during passage, but why bother? The solution is as genius as simple and very easy and inexpensive to retrofit yourself too.
I also noticed a few other changes:
There is still more stuff that Seascape is working on. You could find some of the items in my last years review. It also shows this young yard is constantly evolving and perfecting their product. One thing that hasn’t changed is their attitude. We had such great talks with Svein (Canadian SSC dealer), Toralf (US SSC dealer) and Tit (Production Manager) it’s always a pleasure to meet!
I’m excited to see what else they’ll have in storage for us in the future!
