The New Seaton Expedition 83

Seaton Yachts are pleased to announce the collaboration with The Burger Boat Company in the development and build of the new Seaton 83ft expedition yacht. The continuing rise in the building of Pocket Explorers extends from month to month throughout shipyards all over the world. This little niche market in now becoming a solid section in the Megayacht market.

The Seaton 83 expedition will be built to Ice Class 1D standards at Burgers shipyard in Manitowoc, WI. With the collaboration of these two yards this pocket explorer is going to be exceptional in craftsmanship and design as seen above. The Seaton 83 is designed for unlimited ocean exploration, with a range to cross any ocean at 10 to 12 kts. She has twin engines, bow and stern thrusters, and hydraulic mooring capstans, making her the perfect long range explorer for owners who want to explore without the need of a crew. She will also offer self contained crew quarters if the owner chooses to have crew.

The main deck will feature full walk around side deck with high solid sides, providing on deck protection and security in any sea conditions. Watertight exterior doors, heavy duty windows, and big vessel features such as automatic tank vent closures are all part of an expedition yacht designed to take on the worlds oceans. The foredeck houses a large tender, water toys and necessities such as motorbikes when going to explore. These can all be launched from either side by using the hydraulic foredeck crane.

Jim Ruffolo, President of the Burger Boat Company said, 'This is an exceptional design and we are very excited to be the builder of choice. It is a natural fit for Burger and we look forward to building this extraordinary yacht'.
