Broker's Comments

This is a highly-accomplished cruising motor-yacht. Seaway are not a “tip of the tongue” name. They quietly design and engineer very high-end carbon yachts under the Shipman brand, and also the Greenline motor-cruiser range. The Skagen 50 is a beautifully-conceived and executed Category A cruiser. She is remarkably quiet under way, with a huge amount of storage volume, both in her cabins and also in the full-beam aft lazarette. She is equipped with a full cruising inventory to include Williams 325, washer/drier, water-maker, freezer and upgrade 12kVa generator. For close quarter manoeuvring she has the wireless Yacht Controller remote for engines and her upgraded bow and stern thrusters. With two side access doors, bulwark gates, aft docking winches and internal flybridge stairs, she is a joy to handle around the marina, and is easily managed with a crew of two.


Currently lying only a short and very easy flight away near Zadar, Croatia – she is docked in a stunning, central and well-organised cruising area on the Dalmatian coast. There is a full set of details photographs available, along with a video presentation, and we also have print copies of the Motor Boat & Yachting report on file for your interest. (please note that the MBY test report was done on this actual boat and, based on that test, the Skagen 50 was voted “Trawler Yacht of the Year" for 2007 in the awards at the London Boat Show in January 2008.

Owner's Comments

What can I say?  This is the perfect boat for short or extended cruising either as a couple or with friends and family.  She is spacious enough to let six people live aboard in comfort without feeling they are on top of one another, and with the free flow of side doors and internal steps to the flybridge, she is easy and fast to get around.


We have spent an average of over three months a year living on board in complete comfort.  We have generally pottered at about 8.5 knots, 1,600 rpm, and burning only 2 litres per mile travelled.  At this speed everyone on board can go about their day safely and comfortably, without spilling any drinks and knowing that young children or animals (although we have never had animals on board) are safely enclosed by the high gunwales and safety rails.  Having said that, for added security the young ones have always worn the MOB wrist tags that would alert the boat if they were more than about 30 feet from the central sensor, in other words if they were not on board.


We generally use the spacious flybridge for most on board meals but the very usable foredeck has traditionally been our sundowners spot, using a table and a couple of director’s chairs to supplement the standard seating.  This provides excellent privacy when in a marina berthed stern to - everyone else is located at their stern, whilst we are secluded at our bow.


Adriatic cruising is just superb, with hundreds of islands always providing sheltered, calm, clear, warm water when the wind does occasionally kick up a bit but even when caught out in a major storm, Callisto J handles anything that can be thrown at her.  We have always felt completely safe, secure and comfortable, no matter the conditions.  Besides, she has a useful turn of speed to outrun the weather.


Close quarter manoeuvring is simplicity itself, she sits in the water and with her skeg keel just waits to be told what to do and the hand held Yacht Controller system makes that a doddle.  Once you have used it, you would never be without it.  I can walk around, looking closely at the “tight corners” and frequently draw approving comments from the inevitable watchers in marinas and harbours.  It is so easy that the two of us often berth alone when there is no shore based assistance. 


Callisto J often draws admirers from motor boaters and yachties alike, she is a proper “little ship”.  We love her and only family circumstances are dragging us off to spend time on other continents, a long way away from Callisto J.

Press Comments

“With its fine engineering, build quality, deep keel, good mooring gear and it free-flowing interior and deck layout, Seaways’s new Skagen 50 excels as a tri-cabin, twin heads, long-distance cruising boat. It is a serious offshore cruiser and weekend party boat – as an all-rounder, it’s very impressive.” – David Marsh, Motor Boat & Yachting – August 07
