Custom built world cruiser


Designed by Bill Dixon ( famous for designing Moody’s, plus many more including super yachts ) and built by the well respected Van Dam Nordia and Koopmans boat yards, the Seacrest 47 is a custom built Deck Saloon Cruiser designed for safe ocean crossings and extended, comfortable round the world cruising but is also equally at home bay hopping and day sailing around the coast.

The current owners had a dream to travel the world in style, comfort and safety and in 1995 they commissioned Bill Dixon to design the perfect custom Aluminium world cruising yacht and the Seacrest 47 was born. Over the next two years she was built to the highest standards by the most respected Aluminium boat builders and after extensive sea trials she set sail. Over the next few years she navigated her way from Northern Europe to the Mediterranean and to Greece, where her current owners have lived on board for many months per year, making extended trips through the Med and the Adriatic Sea but due to a change in circumstances they now offer her to new owners and new adventures.

Without stepping onboard it is hard to fully appreciate how much passion, planning and quality of workmanship has gone into the Seacrest 47’s design and construction. Every aspect of her design has been carefully considered and then crafted to an extremely high standard. Being a true deck saloon means the main saloon is light, bright and feels very spacious with excellent visibility and protection from the elements when needed. The cherry wood used throughout gives her a feeling of warmth and quality without being too dark. A large master aft suite offers luxury owners accommodation with ensuite and huge bed. The superbly designed galley and dinette area are nicely separated from the main saloon offering two living areas effectively. Another standout feature is the lifting keel which operates hydraulically and is designed so it doesn’t take up any accommodation space inside the boat. 

From a sailing and performance perspective it’s not hard to see from her design that she will be a great blue water passage maker and has been constructed with safety and comfort in mind at all times. Add to that an extensive sail wardrobe and near new standing rigging she is eagerly waiting her next challenge and new owners.
