The Seaward 22 was first launched in 1984, and in 1989 magically became the Seaward 23 (see next page) by including a bowsprit in its length designation. The 22 has round ports while the 23 has better-looking rectangular ports, and there are many other differences as well. But the 23 by any other name is still a 22-footer on deck. Best features: To the builder's credit, the hardware is generally top quality and the finishing touches carefully applied. The icebox is accessible from both the cockpit and the cabin, a great convenience on a hot day when the helmsman wants to reach for a cool one without bothering the crew below. Worst features: Although her performance parameters are mostly similar to her comps, she appears to suffer badly in the speed department compared to the Columbia 22, which has a PHRF rating a full 99 seconds lower, despite the fact that the Columbia is several hundred pounds heavier. In fact, measured against the 65 other boats in this guide in the 22-foot LOD range, the PHRF rating of the Seaward 22 (and 23) is worse than all but four other boats. We can't explain why.
