Seal Sinbad Selling my 22ft Drop Keel Sailing Yacht With TrailerHi i am selling my yacht as i now have too many other commitments.She is in great condition just needs a anti foul and a outboard engine and you will be off. Comes with full set of sails ally mast, cooker, vhf, toilet, compass, seats, Auto tiller, Heavy Duty Trailer. She sleeps 2 comfortably but you could fit four. Basically if you are looking to get on the water this summer then this is the boat for you.The Seal, like many really good ideas, is so obviously right in concept it is hard to believe nothing quite like her has been designed before.
Retractable fin keel. The Seal has a fin keel, essential for performance and good stability. A special feature is that the keel retracts-enabling you to explore the shallows-run up on the beach-use a mud berth-trail her behind the car. Also with the keel raised you reduce wetted area for fast downwind sailing-the Seal really flies with the spinnaker up.
Family Sailing. This is what the Seal has been designed for-she’s just the boat for the man who is used to dinghy performance but now, with a young family, wants the security of a keel boat-and the accommodation to spend occasional weekends away. The Seal is fun to race too.
Safety. This has been an important factor in the Seal’s development. The stable but easily driven hull has a 40 per cent ballast ratio- which means the family not only are safe-they will feel safe too.
Accommodation. The Seal is divided into three-a two-berth cabin forward-enormous two family cockpit amidships-and a self-draining helmsman’s cockpit aft. Father can sail the Seal like a demon circumnavigator while the family enjoy their sailing out of harm’s way; and mother can really relax knowing the children are safe in such a deep cockpit.
Day Sailing or weekend cruising. For day sailing there’s room for a couple of families-with nobody cooped up below out of fun and sun. The extended coachroof gives plenty of protection from wind and spray. You can rig a cockpit canopy to convert the Seal into a snug four berther for weekending. The forward cabin can be fitted with a sea, or chemical, toilet and there’s a galley, with plenty of places for the cook to stow pots and pans.
Well tested. We know the Seal makes sense because we sailed her hard before going into production-ironing out the problems to give trouble free sailing. We won a few races too!
Construction. The all glassfibre Seal is moulded in our modern, temperature controlled factory. Hull lay up consists of the gelcoat followed by a layer of 1½ oz mat, then a 2 oz layer of mat, a single layer of 18 oz woven roving and a final layer of 1½ oz mat. In addition, there is progressive thickening from the waterline to the keel and at the bow. Great hull rigidity is achieved by bonding in fore and aft stringers and the interior moulding, which forms the berths and toiIet compartment. The deck, coachroof and self-drain cockpit form one moulding which is bolted and bonded to the hull. Non slip deck surfaces are moulded in.
Keel and rudder. The retractable keel is a heavy iron casting of approximately 800 lbs (367 kg) weight. It is hydrodynamicalIy shaped and fits snugly into glassfibre housing. The simple screw jack lifting gear is easy to operate. The rudder has anti fracture marine ply cheeks, stainless steel hangings and 5/16″ (7.5 mm) mild steel blade.
Rig. The Seal is a Bermudian sloop. Mast and boom by Ian Proctor Metal Masts Ltd. are gold anodised. Stainless steel rigging consist of upper shrouds with swinging spreaders, and lower shrouds and forestay. Halliards are prestretched terylene. Sails are 5 oz terylene.
