Performance without Compromise
The 1190 Sport has been developed for sailors looking for performance without compromise on comfort and range. The 1190 is a variant of the popular 1160 cruising range and has been optimised by Francois Perus in collaboration with Alan Carwardine, two of the industry’s leading multihull designers.
Daggerboards and Retractable Rudders
The Seawind 1190 Sport is one of the few production catamarans under 40ft which features both daggerboards and retractable rudders. There are many advantages in this;
- Less drag than mini-keels (7m3 reduction in wetted surface area)
- Higher pointing ability (5-7 degrees)
- Shallow draft (450mm)
- Lighter construction
Dagger style high aspect retractable rudders
- Reduced drag

Like her sister the Seawind 1160, the Seawind 1190 Sport has the award winning trifold doors opening the saloon to the covered cockpit and with the forward opening saloon window allow for maximum air flow through and ventilation. By having her galley down the space in both the saloon and galley is increased to maximize the livability of the boat.
Fully Open Galley
As with all Seawind Catamarans the fully open galley down allows for more bench space and storage within the galley without isolating the chef. From the galley a conversation can be easily had with anyone in the saloon or starboard helm station and food or utensils passed out.
The owners hull to port, has a queen size island bed in the owners cabin, with adjoining navigation station and full size bathroom aft. The starboard hull has a double berth cabin aft, galley and with another mid ship double berth can and optional second bathroom forward.
The 1190 Sport offers all the advantages of a modern sports catamaran without losing the ability to also perform as a long distance cruiser.
