In 1994, Seawind Catamarans launched the first Seawind 1000. A 33 foot cruising catamaran with a unique design and modern lines. In that same year, the Seawind 1000 won the ?Australian Cruising Boat of the Year?, the first time such an award had been bestowed on a Catamaran. Since then over 100 boats have travelled down the Seawind 1000 production line and into the hands of their new owners, anxious to begin cruising on their new dream boat. Designed to cope with the rugged and variable conditions of Australia?s coastline, the Seawind 1000 is widely considered a great ocean going yacht due to design features such as flared hulls for additional buoyancy, triple point reefed mainsail to easily de-power, and foam core construction for additional strength, just to name a few. However the Seawind 1000 is also one of the best designs for entertaining guests or taking the family sailing as a result of the uniquely designed cockpit and saloon.
