More Space than some 45 footers
Thanks to the ingenious tri-folding door arrangement, the Seawind 1160 offers a massive sprawling open area between the saloon and cockpit to provide open easy living, yet the security and comfort when you need it.
Outboards vs Diesels
Unique to the Seawind 1160, you have the option of electric tilt outboard motors in the LITE package or diesel sail drives in the DELUXE package.
Benefits of Outboards
Significant weight reduction
No drag when sailing
No growth on legs
Low maintenance & low replacement costs
Fuel stored external to the cabin
More storage internally on the boat
Benefits of Diesel Saildrives
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.
You have the option of a light grey wash interior for the clean minimalist look, or upgrade to the new modern timber kit for a touch of luxury and warmth. The stylish interiors use laminate surfaces that are hardwearing and lightweight, and minimise weight with light foam core cabins doors and cabinets. Upholstery cushions are finished with high quality Sunbrella fabrics or optional leather.
Spacious Interior & Higher Performance
The Seawind 1160 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. You have everything you need and enough space to be very comfortable, yet the hulls remain streamline and efficient so that speed is not compromised.
