Dear Richard Mike and Brent, I am writing to let you all know how much we are enjoying The Pearl, our Seawind 1160 Lite, that we have owned for just over 6 months. As you know this is our third Seawind, having previously owned 2 x Seawind 1000’s. The design, from top to bottom is amazing, with exceptionally functional layout and fittings, some great sailing minds have obviously been engaged. The sailing performance has exceeded my expectations, regularly sailing at 7.5kn in light conditions, and handling easily in the stronger more exciting winds, regularly touching the 10+kn. The finish also exceeds our expectations, with great attention to detail noted in some complicated shapes and junctions. We love the modern and lightweight finish. The Pearl is a great credit to you all, we look forward to many years of happy charterers and some great sailing adventures of our own. What would we change: nothing!!
The reasons that I decided to buy the Aquila as follows: I had been considering for couple of years changing from a sail boat to a motor launch but was put off by both the cost of launches and the high fuel fuel consumption compared to a sail boat. The Aquila provides a lot of area for a 44 foot boat the equivilant of a 55 foot mono hull and was less expensive and more fuel efficient. The quality of the Aquila impressed, felt very solid, well built compared to alternative boats, particularly the stainless steel railing and the cabinetry. The layout with the spacious master cabin, the great cockpit entertaining area with the u shaped seating and opening bar galley area works brilliantly and the same applies to the huge flybridge area which has easy access and the seating layout is better than most other boats. Also the direct access from the flybridge to the bow is a very good feature when short handed. Price was an important component in my final decision and the Aquila offered great value assisted by favourable exchange rates. Good service and advice from both Australia and New Zealand agents also provided confidence that if any warranty issues are encountered they would be handled in a prompt and efficient manner. Of course there are always somethings that can be improved on but we are confident both the factory and agents will help us along the way. Overall we are very happy with our decision and are looking forward to the boat arriving in early new year.
In July 2016 I received my new Seawind 1160 Lite. The team at Multihull Central did an impressive job in preparing the catamaran for the handover. It was in all parts ready to set sail and beautifully prepared for us. The introduction was extremely competent and the handing over was very enjoyable and a great experience. The few minor issues that emerged were immediately resolved as they became visible. The professional and highly experienced handing over contributed greatly to the pleasure we have been getting from sailing our new Seawind catamaran.
Reviewed Sept 2016 - Lagoon 500 Great experience purchasing a used cruising cat Just a quick review of the services received during the purchase of a used Lagoon 500. Firstly all the staff were great and made the effort to ensure my purchase was hassle free and as enjoyable as parting with vast sums of money can be. Ok best thing about the whole deal is that nothing was over rated or over sold or over stated and if any thing was undersold. Even 3 weeks later, 500 nm travelled I have not found anything other than as it was sold....no unpleasant surprises.....and heaps of very pleasant surprises like full kit of filters ,impellers and RO membranes stashed in the lockers The pics and description supplied prior to inspection were spot on and it was a pleasure to arrive and have the boat look better than expected.....much better than I imagined in hindsight. Not often a dealer these days provides a no bullshit...strait up sale and service but that's exactly what I received from these guys and have really enjoyed the purchase as such. Honest presentation and advice Offer of free marina berth while I got sorted before leaving The path to the marina gate needs repairing by the landlord
Seawind 1160 Resort: First in Sydney Harbour! After some initial challenges with the delivery date of our Seawind 1160 Resort, we finally received delivery on November 21st 2016. The commissioning team at Multihull Central couldn't have worked harder for us to make sure we made our charter deadlines for December 1st. Considering the boat only arrived at Multihull Central on November 23rd, it was amazing to have it up and running for charter on December 2nd 2016. Thank you Brent, Christine & John for all your help!
