Over the years, Per has established himself as a man of action and little words, so we decided to shed more light on its history. There were a lot of interesting things.
Per is a man of few words, but his actions speak for him. He recently sold a Seascape 18 and bought 24. Being one of the first owners of Seascape 24, he took a boat from the shipyard. But he didn’t turn around and go straight home; it was his whole family. They continued their journey South-West, crossed the Tuscany and got on the ferry to Sardinia, where was their destination – the Maddalena archipelago.
“20 years ago, when I was here as a professional skipper on a large cruise yacht, I said to myself that I have to come back and walk on his own yacht. In a time when nobody thought of Seascape, this meant that you need to collect a lot of money, buy a bigger boat and to have at least a year to explore the Sredizemke. Large and probably quite unrealistic plans. But then came the Seascape! Virtually the entire world became available with this small trailer boat. If you can to get there and there’s water, you may be able to go to this place on a yacht!”
Many sailboats Seascape has found a new home in Scandinavia and the reason people like Per.
“I began sailing in childhood, at about five years. My uncle was a sailor, and he convinced my dad to buy a boat. As a teenager I was driving the Dinghy and got my first real boat at 18, since then I have always had a boat. I met Christian on the show, he showed me pictures Seascape18, and I thought then that it looks really good! I was looking for a yacht that I could go West with my then four year old son. I immediately became clear that Seascape 18 was a perfect fit. Easy, fast, fun and safe boat, which seemed inviting to go on adventures. Given that sailing like a hobby of mine and that I started out with a small Dinghy, I didn’t want to buy an old, heavy (and thus slow) keel boat. Seascape 18 gives almost the same feeling as the Dinghy, without the risk of tipping over. Almost zero sludge makes it ideal to approach the beaches, and that’s what I’ve always wanted to do.”
The whole family of five spent eight days on Board. Of these eight days, they only had twice taken refuge in the Marina. All the other nights they chose to spend at anchor in shallow bays with emerald water. When Pen asked, do his children his passion for sailing, he replied:
“Honestly, kids love sailing to a greater extent because they like it when we are all together. So together, both can only be on a sailboat. They like that their father is in cruise mode.”
“Virtually the entire world became available with this small trailer boat. If you can to get there and there’s water, you may be able to go to this place on a yacht!”
Blood of the Vikings, which flows in the veins of the Pen from time to time makes itself known and calls to battle. That’s why he takes his Seascape 24 for each regatta, which he considers a worthy challenge. Racing singles or doubles crews very strong in the Baltic and North seas, probably due to the successful combination of coastal and open water and usually good wind conditions. Pen is the champion of speed racing Silverrudder in Denmark in both classes: Seascape18 and Seascape24. With Seascape 24 he also became the winner in the mini division and was one of the fastest in the overall standings. He is a veteran of numerous competitions Seascape and Jabuka in the Adriatic. His love of the Seascape is also contributed to the fact that he is now a dealer Seascape in Denmark.

“The only question I ask people is because everything else like the versatility of the boat is obvious. Sometimes I have to explain that these boats are not racing. Some seem extreme, Seascape yachts, which, of course, very wrong. This is a family cruise yacht, just fast. We see a paradigm shift. Cruise boats don’t have to be heavy, slow and boring, but rather needs to be quick, light and to bring the pleasure of yachting. The ability to easily transport and launching, and also the possibility of anchoring on the beach makes Seascape 24 best cruise keel yacht on the market today. Add to that the growing popularity of single regattas, which we have seen in recent years, and you have a concept in which Seascape 24 is the perfect answer to your dreams of sailing (as long as you do not have any desire to get up during sleep)”.

About Seascape 24
Seascape 24 – modern response to the traditional concept of the “people’s boat”: a trailer with four bunks for the crew, focused on coastal waters, drained from the slip. We have released the performance that traditionally depends on the length and shape of the case that allows you to quickly get on plane even with a light wind.
Fully folding keel (centerboard is raised according to the principle of a folding knife) facilitates the descent of the boat from the slip. Simple A-shaped frame design allows to install the mast without a crane. These features give the boat a whole new level of freedom in exploring the most remote places. Four full beds is the main feature of the interior of Seascape 24. A clever system of sliding panels allows this size. Storage on a boat organized on the basis of a rational system of bags, borrowed from the Seascape 27. Of course, there is a place for toilets and battery for the electrical system.
Despite the fact that Seascape 24 has a certification for coastal waters and has quite an impressive sail area, its the simple layout of the deck and high stability of the hull allow a single family or crew to bring it to its full potential. She proved it by winning races of the regatta “Tag und Nacht” on lake Zurich to the world’s largest single race – 140 miles “Silverrudder”.
In 2018, the company acquired the Beneteau shipyard Seascape and produced these famous dinghies under a new name:
Seascape 14 > 14 First
Seascape 18 > 18 First
Seascape 24 > 24 First
Seascape 27 > 27 First
