New Seawind 1000XL Preview, new Seawind dealer in Florida, and more
Seawind are set to launch a new version of the ever popular Seawind 1000, with the new 35 ½ ft model featuring newly extended transoms for increased performance, easier boarding and a more comfortable ride.
With close to 170 Seawind 1000’s built, there have been countless refinements over the years that continue to improve Australia’s most popular catamaran. The latest refinement was originally developed in the USA by several Seawind 1000 owners based in Florida who race their Seawinds regularly and wanted to squeeze some more performance out of the boat. They gained a great deal of success from this winning several Key West races from Miami and continue to be one of the higher performing cruising catamarans in the region.
The improved performance is a result of a longer waterline length which allows the transom to have a clean exit from the water minimizing turbulence and hobby-horsing. The additional buoyancy in the stern also means that when there are more guests onboard the performance isn’t being compromised as much due to the boat’s trim.
Seawind Catamarans have taken this concept a step further by designing large steps into the transom, plus building in a boarding ladder that folds into a hatch, flush with the bottom step. The inboard profile of the extension also allows for easier boarding by dinghy.
The 35ft Seawind 1000XL will be on show for the first time at the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show (May 24-27), and with 10 already ordered, its bound to be another very popular addition to an already superb cruising catamaran. The awarding winning Seawind 1160 will also be on display at this boat show.
