Seawind to reveal top secret Cat at Sanctuary Cove Boat Show

by Seawind Catamarans on 8 Apr 2012
950 on water Seawind Catamarans
Australia’s Seawind Catamarans is set to unveil a brand new entry level coastal cruising catamaran at the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show this May.

The Seawind 950 project has been kept top secret throughout the nearly three year development period, with extensive model and full scale water testing occurring with two boats already launched and the third boat to be on display at the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show.

The new 30ft design labeled the 'Seawind 950', combines an amazing package with two large double cabins, another smaller double cabin plus a child bunk. There is a spacious shared shower / head, very generous galley configuration and a large open living space with Seawind’s signature Indoor / Outdoor saloon & cockpit with a saloon table that converts into a bed plus a full time day bed. An optional charter configuration offers two large cabins and two separate bathrooms.

The boat is designed to fit into two 40ft containers and shipped anywhere in the world, to be easily assembled in a few days by just two people. As the modular system has been purpose designed to easily lock together with minimal bolting, the Seawind 950 can also be disassembled for international transport by shipping container anywhere in the world.

The Seawind 950 comes standard as a cruising model with fixed mini-keels, but there is also an optional racing model with a lowering centerboard for higher pointing performance. A self-tacking jib and fully battened mainsail are standard on either model, along with twin 9.9hp Yamaha Outboards. An overlapping genoa is also optional.



This brand new model adds to Seawind’s heritage of building great sailing catamarans with a performance philosophy. The hull shape concept is consistent with that of the existing Seawind models including the blue water Seawind 1250, also on display at the boat show.

Priced at just $209,000 inc GST delivered anywhere in Australia ready to assemble and sailaway, the new Seawind 950 offers incredible value and is bound to introduce the joys of cruising on catamarans hundreds of new sailing couples and families around the world.
