Seawind 1260 - 'Pirate Pete'
Be one of the first to sail the newest Luxury Catamaran from the Seawind stable. The "Australian designed and owned" Seawind 1260 has just been named "Best Yacht under 50ft in the world" in the International Cruising World Magazine 2019 awards. Combining the best elements of sailability, luxury, comfort, practicality and Australian design, you will not only cruise in style but out sail every other boat to the best Whitsunday anchorages.
The 41ft Seawind 1260 is a product of the best ideas, engineering and craftsmanship accumulated by the Seawind Catamarans team of expert builders and designers.
The Australian indoor/outdoor, open lifestyle is entrenched in this new design, with an unbeatable living area complimented with brilliant natural ventilation, protected cockpit lounge, and social helm seats putting the skipper in control as well as in the conversation.
Best of all, you can enjoy what many cats compromise on "visibility" for the skipper AND crew. with 360 degree views from the helm and saloon seats all within the protection of the fiberglass coachouse and targa roof.
Twin helm positions are a must have for any true sailor, the Seawind 1260 offer the perfect balance between excellent 360 degree visibility and total protection from the weather in any conditions, whilst always offering the skipper full control and comfortable navigation around the cockpit.
We just returned from a 7-night charter on CCY's "Fluffy Muffy", a Lightwave 38 sailing catamaran (September 2014). Perhaps not the best name (felt ridiculous repeating it on the daily radio scheds) but certainly amongst the best holidays we've had. Us: We are a family of 4, with 2 boys aged 6 and 7. Only one of us had sailing experience, but no qualifications or licence. This was not a problem with the pre-trip briefing adequate for us. A sail guide on the first day would be a good option for anyone not confident of their abilities. The yacht: The yacht was clean, very well-presented and everything worked fine. It seemed huge when we arrived, but we managed not to hit anything in and out of the marina! It was a dream to both sail and run under power. We had the sails up most days, but it performed equally well under its engines. Bedding & linen was clean, the galley kitchen was perfect, and yacht was extremely comfortable for us for a week. No cabin fever! Would definitely recommend the catamaran for families, the extra space is perfect and the boat is more stable than a monohull, both at mooring and under sail. The verdict: This was one of the best holidays, can recommend it to all. We'll be back, the kids learned some new skills and despite 1 day of heavy seas they enjoyed the at-sea experience. Both kids had the wheel at various stages, with big smiles on their faces. If you're debating whether or not to try the bareboat experience, just imagine being the lucky ones who get to stay overnight at Whitehaven Beach when the big day-trip boats head home at sunset.
