BROKER’S COMMENT: The Steve Seaton designed Seaton 42 is a true ocean passage maker. She has a 65,000# displacement and 17,000# of ballast. One of her cruises of note was to Bermuda. With her Naiad stabilizers, A/C and amidships berths, she remains comfortable under a range of sea conditions. She is a true small ship that has been well maintained by two very experienced yachtsmen.
