Shipyard : SEAWIND CATAMARANS / Length : 11.6m

Seawind 1160, The Antipodean catamaran


Heartily approved of in Australia, best-sellers in the USA; with its 11.6 m catamaran, Seawind is offering an intelligent solution for peaceful, pleasant voyaging…


Seawind 1160 : An ingenious catamaran

Although the Seawind’s ‘look’ is unique, its interior is much more conventional. The hulls are not very wide, as they have been developed from those of the 1000, by enlarging them just enough above the waterline to obtain volume, without touching the hull itself too much. Result: the forward sections are slim and allow the catamaran to move in the slightest breeze, as we saw during our test.

All the control lines return to the cockpit, to starboard or port, to one of the two winches available on either side, except for the sheets, which can be handled independently on one side or the other.

The only criticism, but an important one, is that the position of the winches is not ideal. On the other hand, the Harken fittings on our catamaran deserve only praise. Hoisting the mainsail is a mere formality, as is taking a reef, and all the foresail manoeuvres.

But the real stroke of genius on this boat is the door which separates the cockpit from the saloon. Made up of three separate elements, it can be more or less open, according to everyone’s wishes. But if you want to enjoy the cockpit-saloon area to the full, the door can be lifted, and disappears into the bimini.
