Simple, Fast & Light!
The Seawind 1160 LITE features the same resin infused construction and same hull, deck, rig, sails and the famous Trifold door system of the Seawind 1160 Deluxe. But the design team have worked out how to streamline the design to offer a robust cruising cat at a very attractive price.
Benefits of Outboards
The Seawind 1160 LITE moves from the traditional diesel sail drives to lighter 20hp Honda (or 25hp Yamaha) outboard engines with electric tilt.
Some of the benefits of which are;
- Significant weight reduction
- No drag when sailing
- No growth on legs
- No electrolysis
- Low maintenance & low replacement costs
- Fuel stored external to the cabin
- More storage internally on the boat
Built to Sail
As with all Seawind Catamarans they are designed to be first and foremost a sailing boat. With twin helm stations protected from the weather, all lines leading back to the cockpit and 360 degree visibility, they are set up to be easily handled by a crew of one or ten. The award winning trifold door system allows for indoor/outdoor living like no other boat on the market and is perfectly suited to the Australian climate.
Sleek Interior Fitout
One of the most noticeable differences on board the Seawind 1160 LITE is the new sleek interior design and fit out. The timber kit has been replaced with a lightweight and stylish timber look laminate surfaces, with a new contemporary neutral colour palette as specified by Seawind’s interior stylist. The upholstery is modern, angular, yet practical with a range of hard wearing Sunbrella fabrics to choose from.
Proven Interior Layout
The Seawind 1160 Lite has a spacious owners cabin in the port hull with a queen size island bed and plenty of storage. The three cabin version has an adjoining full size bathroom with separate shower and glass shower screen. The starboard hull has two double berth cabins with optional second bathroom forward and the fully open galley. This is a proven design which owners love the practicality and ergonomics of.
Simple, Fast and Light
The perfect cruising catamaran combining the best of the 100’s of Seawind previously built and sailing around the world with new and innovative ideas to keep her light, fast and affordable. Easily sailed by a family, couple or single handed coastal cruising or offshore.
