Interior and Deck Layouts



At 52 foot, this Reichel Pugh designed performance cruising catamaran offers sailors a true sailing experience whilst not sacrificing on safety or comfort.  The Seawind 1600 has proven to be a world class cruiser capable of being sailed anywhere, by anyone.

High aspect deep retracting rudders and daggerboards offer performance and practicality – this boat tacks easily and is a nimble performer but has a minimum draft of only 54cm with the foils raised.

With simple sailing systems, twin protected helms and a large open cockpit space, this blue water luxury cruising catamaran sets the standard for offshore sailing.

The Seawind 1600 carries an exclusive interior full of the elegant finish work expected of a true thoroughbred sailing yacht.

A delightful light-oak interior oozes Italian style.  The chic grey of the oak interior contrasts well with the modern walnut floor timbers.  Soft LED lighting and quality sound system enhance the carefully planned atmosphere aboard.

Designed for extended ocean crossings, the Seawind 1600 has all of the cruising practicality you would expect from a new Seawind, but delivered on long, fast, performance hulls.

Comfort and performance are a trade-off discussed endlessly.  The Seawind 1600 strikes this balance through the use of advanced build technologies and continuous weight-saving efforts.  Strategically placed carbon fibre reinforcements throughout the structure, Kevlar reinforcement under the waterline and revolutionary daggerboard integration not only make the Seawind 1600 an extremely stiff and fast catamaran, but also gives her the beach ability that so many Seawind catamarans are renown for
