Re: Seawind 1160 Lite Catamaran

Yes, Lighter & Longer equals faster & higher. Unless of course you sail a Lagoon 39 which has an innovative hull shape and sail plan which means it doesn't have to comply with the laws of physics

Re: Seawind 1160 Lite Catamaran

SV Pali Pali launches next week in HCM and then we will spend the next few weeks test sailing prior to heading to Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore.

Enclosed are some of the the latest Pics of the 2016 Seawind 1160 Model,

Only items that are special additions that are normally not included in the standard production options that have been added are

1) Composite Steering wheels
2) Extended and widened settee area

Those wheels look nice. Very Nice, and I like the revised cabin, window treatment

Re: Seawind 1160 Lite Catamaran

Hi Andrew
Your boat looks fantastic. Great name which I googled.
Do you know if the bowsprit is easily removed or difficult. Reason I ask is I have ordered mine with bowsprit because I didn't want an after-market fit where there may be warranty issues if problems with the new front beam. My boat will be going into a charter fleet for part of the year but I would like to remove the bowsprit for that time.
Appreciate your help and good luck with your launch.

Thanks for the kind words,
The Bowsprit has a fitting similar to a spinnaker pole at the forebeam joint but uses a more permanent split pin vs the normal snap hook that is on a traditional pole. All the tension is taken up by the lower bow pad eyes and the halyard so its a bit of a pain removing the bow sprit fully each time you wanted to go sailing. Would suggest for charter that you not setup the bow sprit as there is potential to easily damange the Pelican striker if the charterer does not know what he is doing. ie, when not in use the spinnaker halyard must always be attached under tension to the end of the sprit to avoid potential bending the striker, particularly if some of the crew decised to use the sprit and swinging pole....

On our setup the furler attaches via a snap shackle directly to a pad eyes at the very end of the bow sprit. When changing over sails you will need to release the line tension on the bow sprit clutch and then the entire sprit swings to the port side parrell with the forbeam .

Will post some video of the setup when we get back to Singapore.

Re: Seawind 1160 Lite Catamaran

Thanks again Andrew. Just to clarify the boat will be in charter for several months each year then used privately for several.So it sounds like it is possible to remove it for the charter season and then reattach for my use. Is that what you are saying?

Re: Seawind 1160 Lite Catamaran

For those who are going to the Miami Boat Show and are interested in the 1160 Lite, we will have one there to board and inspect. I believe we're also trying to arrange after show demos. Come on down, look me up and say "hi". I'll be onboard the 1160 Lite. If I'm not mistaken, this is the first one in the US..
