2005 Seawind 1000

$160,843 USD

Australian built Seawind Catamarans are strong vessels known for their great sailing performance. They are undoubtedly one of the most popular cruising boats on the market today.

‘Don Gato’ is a versatile boat made for cruising Australian waters. She has the ability to sail fast and flat and with her shallow draft, you can enjoy some idyllic, isolated anchorages along the east coast and tuck away in protected areas when the wind pipes up.

A family friendly boat, the Seawind 1000 features a hard top salon area offering protection from the elements without having to be couped up inside. The twin helm promotes confidence with maneuvering and docking making her an easy boat to handle.

Inside ‘Don Gato’, the three cabins and galley down offer a spacious and comfortable liveaboard lifestyle. This version of the Seawind 1000 has a forward opening front window to the saloon area allowing lovely seabreezes to flow throughout the living area.

This vessel has been well maintained throughout its several years as a charter boat and remains charter ready.

Enquire today as she won’t be on the market long. Currently out of the water on the hard at Boat Works, Coomera QLD ready for your inspection.

"Don Gato" is ready to sail away and live the dream.
