The challenge was to demonstrate that it is possible to break away from the sacrosanct idea of a 40-foot minimum size. The Lagoon 380 did it back in the day, so why not other models? Compared to the 1190, the 1170 offers much greater comfort - and an extra 3 tons of weight that logically comes as the cost. The deck layout features two helm stations at the after end of the hulls. The sail plan is somewhat restricted by the self-tacking jib, though this has the advantage of further simplifying maneuvers. The three-section, pivoting bay window provides excellent circulation between the cockpit and the nacelle. In the port hull, the owner’s cabin offers a beautiful queen-size double berth, set athwartships. The galley is moved to the starboard hull. The first Seawind 1170 was presented at the Annapolis Boat Show, and series production is currently underway in a new factory in Turkey - the manufacturer’s first commercial objective is to establish this new model on the European market.
