The Seawind 1160 creatively blends key concepts of other popular Seawind models to create a design that successfully combines the huge living space and all-round visibility of the Seawind 1000, with the sleeping accommodation, luxurious fit-out and security of the lockable Saloon featured on the Seawind 1200. This cat will appeal to cruisers who want a well-built boat that can sail away in a hurry.

From the moment you step aboard, it’s clear that the ergonomics of getting around the boat are a high priority, along with a strong emphasis on indoor/outdoor living facilitated by unhindered, single-level access between the roomy, airy saloon and the open cockpit. Also on the same level are the twin helm stations, opposite each other on the saloon bulkhead. The port station houses the engine controls, and the nav instruments, just inside the saloon, are within reach through the open window; they’re readable when it’s closed. The view forward, through the saloon, is excellent, and the helmsman can pop his head out from under the awning to see the sails. Other than a cushioned box seat at each wheel and a bench integrated into the safety railing spanning the aft deck, the cockpit has no fixed seating.

The saloon can be opened completely to the cockpit across its aft side, courtesy of an innovative TRIFOLDING DOOR system. It folds up to stow overhead in the rigid center section of the cockpit roof; it can be lowered and secured in place in heavy seas, when the night air gets chilly, or when you leave the boat. One panel is a regular door. When open it converts the space into a huge living and entertaining space designed for indoor/outdoor living.

Inside the saloon, the seating provides a panoramic view of the seascape through the windows in both the deckhouse and the hulls. The galley is “down” in the starboard hull, but it’s open to the saloon and connected to the party there; the cook gets both light and a view through the hull window, relieving any sense of enclosure.

Since its recent launch, the new 38ft Seawind 1160 catamaran has won a huge array of awards internationally, including “Best Multihull” Cruising World Mag and “Most Innovative” Cruising World both in 2007, “Best Sailboat” Newport Boat Show 2006, the 2005 Australian Sailboat of the Year and many others. Around 80 Seawind 1160s have been sold around the world due to its superior use of space and outstanding performance attributes.

Seawind owners have sailed across the Pacific ocean from Australia to Alaska,via New Zealand, Tahiti and Hawaii, while other owners have cruised through SE Asia. You will also find the Seawind 1160 catamaran is a favourite in bareboat charter fleets in Australia and Thailand and now we are bringing it to the BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS. The versatility combined with superior workmanship and quality is what defines the Seawind 1160.

From its performance under sail to its structural and mechanical details, the Seawind 1160 is the embodiment of a simple design brief executed with integrity by a builder with its eye on the long term.
