Seals and Parkers
are British-built yachts, ranging in length from
21' to 33', mostly with lifting keels.
They started with the Seal 22 in 1970, built by John Baker, and followed by the Seal 28 and Super Seal 26. In 1981, Bill
Parker took over the range and added the Parker 21, Parker 27 and Parker 31. These then evolved into a high-quality range
of cruiser-racers built by Parker Lift-Keel Yachts - the trailable Parker 235, the Parker 285 and the Parker 335.
In 2009, Parker Lift-Keel yachts ceased trading.
