What a fitting scene to launch a new blue water cruiser, with a strong southerly blowing and the wild Tasman Sea in the background, as the 41ft Seawind 1250 splashed down into Wollongong Harbour.
This brand new design encompasses 27 years of multihull design and manufacturing from Seawind's design team, who have created an ocean going catamaran that Seawind says “offers the highest level of engineering, quality of finish and performance”. With over a million dollars worth of new tooling and design investment, Seawind say they are are looking forward to rolling out this new production line in a new purpose built facility in Russell Vale (Wollongong – Australia) using a climate controlled resin infusion lamination bay for superior fibreglassing quality and strength.
The new Seawind 1250 shares many of the award winning design characteristics of the 38ft Seawind 1160, such as the trifolding doors, open space layout, 360 degree view, and multipurpose saloon table, coffee table and bed.
This new design is larger in length, beam, height, rig, sails, fuel tanks, storage lockers, head height, and also offers a new twin helm design with protection from the elements, a sky window to view the sails and optional raised seats for cruising comfort.
Plus, a wider targa catwalk for additional solar panels for cruisers and a larger targa walking platform, bow seats, larger trampolines, an open bottom transom step for easy boarding from dinghies and larger optional motors, and there is an innovative day bed & navigation desk built into the saloon, or an optional galley up layout.
The official launch is Friday the 30th of October at the Royal Motor Yacht Club, Newport, where Seawind will host a launch party in conjunction with the start of the 11th annual Seawind Pittwater Regatta, where 30 plus Seawinds are expected for Australia's largest ‘Big Cat' regatta held over the weekend.
