The first Seal yacht was designed by Angus Primrose and built by John Baker in 1970. Later, the Seal 22 was built and significant numbers were sold.

In about 1978 John Baker commissioned Ron Holland to design the Super Seal 26, a fast, safe, thoroughbred yacht The lines of the Seal 26 give plenty of support aft for a crew of family proportions, and for the sort of loads that the cruising owner takes aboard his boat. The long fore and aft lines of the 26 will give good handling characteristics, particularly downwind.
