Re: Seawind 1000XL2 for circumnavigation

Forget the photos PTMD - get and have a look at one. As I said they are not huge but I am 194cms and 100 kilo, may lady its a fair bit smaller, and it just works for us. Just. If its a really hot night then I sleep on the fwd bunk. Or we put the saloon table down and sleep upstairs with everything wide open. But really only you will know after you look at one.

Re: Seawind 1000XL2 for circumnavigation

Hi everybody

I'm also very interested in the Seawind 1000 (XL) but as I'm living in Europe I can not simply go an look at one

I look for a simple cat for single-handing and long term living mostly in the tropics. Possibly also (another) circumnavigation. Having spent 5 years living, sailing and repairing a heavy steel 38 foot monohull I really want to keep the next boat as simple as ever possible. Obviously a good sailing performance is a big bonus. I believe the Seawind 1000 meets a lot of these requirements and I really like the concept with the open living area and the two outboards.

BUT I'm also 195 cm tall and would like to be able to stand upright below the boom and (at least) in central parts of the hulls (like in the pantry).
The other worry is size the bunks.

So I would greatly appreciate if somebody of the many Seawind 1000 owners in the Forum could give me the measurements of:
- Main bunk and possibly also the other bunks
- standing headroom in pantry
- headroom in bathroom
- headroom in saloon standing and sitting
- headroom under the bimini
- headroom under the boom

Thanks a lot in advance!

Jan

- Main bunk and possibly also the other bunks - I fit all of them (just)
- standing headroom in pantry - I can stand up tall (just)
- headroom in bathroom - I can stand up tall - just
- headroom in saloon standing and sitting - plenty sitting, not quite enough to stand tall when standing
- headroom under the bimini - plenty of clearance
- headroom under the boom - Plenty of Clearance

How well do the Seawind 1000's point to windward?

Re: Seawind 1000XL2 for circumnavigation

Our friend had a Seawind 1000 (not XL) and although a very nice boat, it was not one that I would want to spend weeks on at a time. The XL is a bit bigger, but I do not think it has any more usable space (correct me if I am wrong).

He has now sold it and purchased a Seawind 1160 Lite. Probably has twice as much usable space.

Considering all of the above and what I know, I would not want to spend more than a month or so on a 1000XL, but then, like some others, I want a bit more comfort as I get older.

Sorry, did not do much sailing on it, mostly motoring around Sydney Harbour.
