Australia’s Seawind Catamarans unveiled an innovative and exciting new entry level weekender or coastal cruising catamaran at the recent Sanctuary Cove Boat Show
The new 31ft design labeled the “Seawind 950” (ie. 9.5m length), offers incredible value, with with two large double cabins, another smaller double cabin plus a child bunk that can also be converted into an adult crew 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 with the aid of a forklift or crane. As the modular system has been purpose designed to easily lock together with minimal gluing and bolting, the Seawind 950 can also be disassembled for international transport by shipping container anywhere in the world. When shipped, the boat comes supplied with motors, sails and rig ready for assembly.
An overlapping jib and fully battened mainsail are standard on either model, along with twin 9.9hp Yamaha Outboards. A self tacking jib is optional, with the sailing system optimized for short handed sailing.
The Seawind 950 project has been kept top secret throughout the 2-3 year development period, with extensive model and full scale water testing occurring with 2 boats already launched and the 3rd boat on display at the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show.
