Default 3403 Seawind For Sale N242PK SOLD 2-11

HI All,
It is with great regret that one of our builders has decided to sell his Seawind. Ron Greeley has put tremendous effort into making N242PK a one of a kind Seawind. The futuristic cowling is one of it's most beautiful features. I will include his email to me as well as the aircraft stats. I will give you all a look at it first before I post it to the general public.

It certainly makes me wish I didn't have a kit to finish. It would be nice to step right into this beauty!



As you, my fellow Seawinders would most certainly agree, it is with a heavy heart that I compose this letter. Certain factors have conspired to initiate the sale of a project I have been involved with for the last 25 years. Many people have contributed to the final product, but none so much as Roger Creelman, the designer of the aircraft, who over a 10 year period, put more carbon fiber into the plane than I ever knew existed, and Reid Siebert, who did all the wiring in the plane and helped with other aspects of building and testing the craft. Jack, our intrepid test pilot, did the honors with the first flight and reported that it flew like a dream. I have listed some of the more important items in the plane below. It is located in the Florida Keys, and arrangements will be made for interested parties to view at their convenience.

Please email me or call 305-743-8422 for additional information.

Default seawind for sale

Dear Ron, your seawind is the most beautiful one i have seen. I am a new pilot that spends alot of time in the bahamas. i plan to buy a seawind and have an instructor spend as many hours as needed to make me competent. that said how much are you selling for. Does that extra 30hp increase your cruising speed? Was the carbon fiber added above the plans or was it required by the plans? i am in lighthouse point fl (boca raton) and would like to come see your plane. i look forward to your reply and thank you for your time. kevin phillips (dasein2010@gmail.com)
