Cruising Catamarans for Real Sailors
Sail Away is an Authorized Seawind Catamarans Dealer
Seawind Catamarans has enjoyed a stellar reputation of building performance cruising catamarans for over 35 years. Their success is due to their simple design philosophy - to build catamarans that sail exceptionally well, are engineered to the highest quality, can be sailed by anyone, and provide safety and comfort to those aboard. To that end, Seawind made a decision very early on to build catamarans with a focus on cruising couples and families.
All Seawinds are engineered to offshore standards utilizing innovative technologies and materials to create a strong, safe, and reliable boat. The narrower hull designs cut through the water efficiently, getting you to your destination faster and the lines and controls are led back to the cockpit optimizing these boats for solo or short-handed operation. The only twin helm design in the world that offers unrivaled protection from the harsh sun, rain, and wind by being located behind a major bulkhead. Add to this the panoramic windows that give you complete visibility and the flexibility to steer from either side of the boat when sailing so you can properly trim your sails or dock with an optimal twin engine control.
A very generous cockpit allows for a multitude of options. On the Seawind 1160 and 1190 models, add some foldaway deck chairs and a table, use the cockpit as a work area, set up equipment, or clean a freshly caught fish for dinner. The 1260, 1370, and 1600 models offer traditional lounge and seating spaces in the cockpit with built in tables for comfort while making way or entertaining on the dock or hook. The Seawind 1600 offers a sliding door system with opening windows, and all other models offer the innovative tri-fold door system to seamlessly tie the inside and outside living spaces together. The extra-large opening windows in the saloon, hatches and cabins on all of the Seawind models create outstanding ventilation and natural lighting.
The open galley on the Seawind 1160, 1190 and 1260 down in the starboard hull is similar to a Butler’s Pantry. It is completely separate from the living area and no space is wasted; creating a larger galley with storage and prep space. This results in a lounge/living area equal to that of a 50-footer. The Seawind 1370 and 1600 have a galley on the main level tied in seamlessly with the saloon living area. Regardless of style, these galleys make cooking a delight!
