Belfast Lough Down Ireland
1972 Seadog 30 centre cockpit sailing ketch heavily laid-up in GRP from the design board of Reg Freeman.
Triple keels enabling the yacht to dry out.
LOA 30ft LWL 24ft Beam 9ft Draught 3ft 6 Weight 5500kg
Berths for four adults in the main saloon and double aft cabin.
Separate heads compartment forward of the main saloon.
Well equipped nav station for serious off-shore and extended cruising.
Varied sail wardrobe which includes the main, mizzen and a variety of head sails.
Powered by a 48hp four cylinder Lombardini inboard diesel engine that was fitted new in 2001 and currently has 1766 hours on it.
It replaced an older Perkins 4107 36hp diesel and the extra 12hp really makes a difference whether you are punching into a head sea, rounding a headland or needing that extra bite in the water when close quarter handing in a marina.
Fuel tankage consists of two stainless steel tanks holding approx. 200 litres.
Water tanks are contained in the wing keels and supply the sink by way of a manually operated pump.
During the Seadogs lifetime she has been sailed around the UK, France, Belgium, Channel Isles, Scilly Isles and has done 4 circumnavigations of Ireland with various owners.
Seadog 30's are renowned for their build quality, sea-kindly nature and the fact they will look after it's crew in storm force conditions. They sail at their best in force 6 winds and above, remaining under control in force 8 and 9 using the mizzen and smaller headsail.
Easily pushed along with the powerful diesel engine, it dries out upright enabling her to go to places other yachts can't and be fully self-contained should the need to take the ground arise.
Whilst a Seadog cannot be described as a greyhound, 5 knots is a realistic passage-planning speed and in a force 6 broad-reaching with the engine on tick-over this one achieves 7.5 knots. At least two Seadogs are known to have made circumnavigations and so are capable of blue water cruising, however they make a perfect home for anyone wanting to go on an extended cruise for a couple of months on a budget.
