The keenly anticipated Seawind 1260 is nearing launch, with the first boat only a few months from her debut at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show. The excitement that surrounds this launch comes from the genesis of the boat – which came from conversations with the many Seawind owners who were looking for something more from a 41-footer. Here is a hint of what is to come.
Seawind owners love the performance of our catamarans, but our legendarily sociable sailors require space for friends, family and those you meet when cruising. The new 1260 delivers better layout options for a range of different uses through the new cockpit arrangement. Seat 8 people inside, another 8 outside – but open the doors and all can socialize together in one of the largest spaces on a boat in this size. The cockpit can dine 6, but modular cockpit seats can be moved into the saloon to increase seating inside. All of that comes without reducing any of the practicality and seaworthiness that is so often sacrificed for interior space. The 1260 provides unparalleled entertainment space in a boat of this size.
Space to Spare
Seawind is renown for its tri-folding and lifting doors, which allow indoor-outdoor living to the fullest. The combined space in the new Seawind 1260 amounts to over 13 square metres of floor area! There are no steps, no trip hazards, only a perfect fusion of these two areas. The aft seating even converts into a day bed.
The new 1260 features the same unique ventilation system as on our other models – combining ventilation in the cabins, the forward opening windows, and the tri-fold doors to draw air through the boat even in the most serene conditions. But she is also a boat for the Baltic, the North Sea, the roaring 40’s, and beyond. The large and rugged targa top provides shelter from the sun and rain, and the position of the forward windows means even in those tough conditions you can see forward – the protection and visibility of a pilothouse yacht, with the twin helms and flat sailing of a catamaran.
