Seamarks Volvo B10M/Plaxton Paramount MIJ8660 Seamarks was an old established coach company based in Dunstable Road, Luton, though its original premises at Westoning remained unused with the company in recent years. MIJ8660 is typical of the fleet in its declining years, an elderly Volvo B10M/Plaxton Paramount 3500, seen here in the yard at the Dunstable Road premises.

Seamarks Setra At the peak of its strength, Seamarks reflected the owning family's German heritage by purchasing powerful, expensive and uncommon - in those days - machines like this Setra. It is seen here in Hemel Bus Station on Seamark's commercial bus service!
Seamarks
Seamarks Optare Vecta J367BNW
At deregulation, when Seamarks was still a strong company, it diversified into bus services taking on a number of Hertfordshire contracts, operated initially with a fleet of ex-Chester Massey bodied PSU4 Leopards in red and cream with Seamarks fleetnames. The company soon started to acquire its own fleet, starting with some of the first Optare Deltas in the country. This resulted in a strong relationship with Optare and subsequent delveries included a Metro Rider and Vectas, like J367BNW here in Hemel - a second hand City Pacer was also operated.

Seamarks Dennis Javelin K754UJO Towards the end, some attempt was made at reinvestment in the coach fleet with this Plaxton bodied Dennis Javelin, ex Oxford Citylink. The company got into financial difficulties as family disagreement over ownership and direction, coupled with a disciplinary hearing before the Traffic Commissioners over maintenance and service reliability led to the withdrawal of licences and the suspension of registered services. Ultimately the firm was sold to the expanding Nottingham based Dunn-Line empire.
