Deep Seadog

Brief details

Builder

Reg Freeman Yachts Ltd.

As the name implies, the Deep Seadog is a deeper keeled and slightly taller rigged version of the standard Seadog centre-cockpit ketch. With an extra foot of draught and lead instead of iron ballast, and without the bilge plates fitted to the standard version, the Deep Seadog has substantially better windward performance. Seadogs are very solidly built, and offer an interesting combination of qualities, including serious seaworthiness

Deep Seadog

The Seadog was first introduced in 1964, designed and built by Reg Freeman A.R.I.N.A. The design was popular, and production continued for many years, with very minor design changes. They offer an unusual combination of qualities - a good enough and tough enough heavy-displacement sailing boat to cross oceans, yet relatively shallow draught and the ability to take the ground if you have the triple keel version.

Add in a deep safe cockpit protected from the worst of the weather by a fixed windscreen, and masts in tabernacles so they can be lowered if necessary without outside assistance, and you have a genuinely go-almost-anywhere boat, from ocean passages (at least one has been circumnavigated single-handed) to the French canals.

The yacht illustrated here was the first of about 20 Deep Seadogs to be built,
out of the total production of around 140 boats, mostly triple-keel versions.

Deep Seadog

Above and right: The saloon has galley to port, and a chart table to starboard, with the seating area forward. The saloon table folds away almost completely, to leave a very open interior when the table is not required (photos show the table with one leaf only open).

Deep Seadog

The Seadogs have no berths in the fo'csle, this being used for a large heads compartment with basin and WC, plus stowage. In this yacht the collapsible aluminium beaching legs are stowed here when not in use, on a similar fitting to the one on deck.

Deep Seadog

The galley has a gimballed cooker, and a large sink/drainer, plus stowage.

The chart table is designed so that the top folds away, to allow the space under to form the head of a quarter berth. In practice this berth is small and awkward to get in and out of, and few Seadog owners use it as a berth, although the foot of the berth offers good stowage

Deep Seadog

As in most Seadogs, the original two separate berths on either side have been modified to create a
double berth on one side, at the expense of foot room in the cabin

 

The Perkins 4107 was the usual engine fitted to Seadogs, and most are still running despite their age. Engine access is by removing the cockpit sole panels - just one panel is open here.

The deep self-draining cockpit is well protected behind a fixed windshield, over which a sprayhood is fitted. Many Seadogs also have a full 'camper' cover for the cockpit

Deep Seadog

Both masts are mounted in tabernacles, to allow lowering without a crane
