This completely new-from-the-ground-up 45ft catamaran carries a huge array of advancements in design, technology and craftsmanship, while also retaining the most crucial Seawind DNA. It marks a new beginning for the company which is steeped in catamaran history – this being its first entry into the mid-40’s multihull market.
Seawind became prolific on the back of designing cruising catamarans for couples seeking a boat in the 35-42ft range–and nearly 700 such boats have been built. The company has also had great success with the Seawind 1600 –a new 52ft offshore performance catamaran, of which 15 have been secured by buyers since it was recently launched.
The new Seawind 1370 features a galley-up design of a style familiar to those who have seen the award-winning Seawind 1600 interior. Open-plan living is the theme, with saloon, galley, cockpit and helms all on one level to achieve an incomparable open living area in a true sailors boat.
For the new model, striking a balance between performance and lifestyle has been of upmost importance. The boat weighs in at only 11 tonnes–very light and nimble for a 45-footer, but crucially, the 1370 is capable of being heavily loaded with only the minimum of impact on performance. Seawind sees this as a key characteristic needed for modern cruisers, and notably missing in today’s market. The 1370 was designed to a strict brief which carefully balanced sea handling performance and live-aboard comfort.
The new Seawind 1370 measures 45 feet in length and combines the cabin and cockpit layout of the award winning 42′ Seawind 1260 with the exterior stylings and main deck of Seawind’s flagship, the 52′ Seawind 1600.
