With a reputation for solid, well-built boats, Seamaster was one of the largest boat builders in the 1960s and 1970s producing a wide range of sailing yachts and motor boats.
The Seamaster 815 was in production from 1976 to 1981 and a total of 136 were built. Designed by Holman
and Pye, the Seamaster 815 took on a much more modern style than was traditionally seen from the Seamaster stable, yet the 815 model retained the company’s reputation for dependable boats. This family cruising yacht is the bilge keel variant, and boasts an open and airy interior with a maximum internal headroom of 1.8m (5’10”). The hull is a moderate displacement hull, and the design has sufficient sail area to give good performance.
The interior woodwork of the boat has been previously renovated, and is in reasonable condition Soft furnishings are also provided. The boat presents a fantastic opportunity for affordable cruising for someone with the ability to carry out some minor repairs to rubbing strakes and access hatch washboards, varnish on deck
woodwork and antifouling paint to the hull. The engine will require some refurbishment as it has not been run for the past 4 years.
