Broker's Comments

SEAQUEL is one of the highly regarded aft cockpit versions of the Perry designed Norseman 447. She was based in Wisconsin, on the Great Lakes for most of her life, until 2017. She then journeyed down to the Caribbean, and has cruised there in recent years with her Michigan based owners.

Cutter rigged with twin headsail furlers, and a regular main with lazyjacks give her an easily handled sailplan and a bowthruster makes docking easy.

The cockpit is a decent size and has a dodger, bimini and joining fly. Down below in a cozy teak interior, she has 2 decent cabins, 2 heads and a shower. The galley is to port, aft of the saloon, with a dedicated chart table opposite.


Offered to co-brokers on a commission split of 50/50.

Owner's Comments

After a decade filled with unforgettable moments and everlasting adventures, the decision to sell SEAQUEL, our aft-cockpit Norseman 447, is bittersweet. SEAQUEL has allowed us to witness numerous sunsets, explore distant shores and create lifelong memories. From the Great Lakes, through the Saint Lawrence Seaway, to offshore sailing, our Norseman lived up to its reputation for being a strong, seaworthy, bluewater boat. Whether we were navigating coastal waters or embarking on an offshore passage, this Norseman 447, with it’s efficient hull shape, full depth keel for stability, and versatile sail plan, we were assured remarkable upwind and downwind performance.

With the addition of a new bimini, dodger and connector, the already large cockpit expanded and added a large outdoor living space. The storage above and below is plentiful, with secret compartments everywhere. This aft-cockpit Norseman extends the comforts of home. Residing all but 7 years in fresh water, she has been well-maintained with many, many upgrades since purchased in 2014.

However, the difficult choice has come to sell SEAQUEL and move onto new land adventures. Therefore, this Norseman, different from many others, will be outfitted and mostly equipped and ready to sail from the start. A tender and outboard, life raft, life vests, ebirb, Danbouy, Lifesling, galley supplies, bedding, and so much more.

Our hope is that the next owner will appreciate her beauty and performance qualities as we have and create them own enjoyable journeys.

This beautiful aft-cockpit Norseman 447 is in Jolly Harbor in Antigua. Here you will find consistent tradewinds for optimal sailing conditions. Situated in the heart of the Caribbean, Antigua serves as a gateway to many destinations near and far.
