I owned and lived on board my Seawind 1200 for two years before selling her and moving on to a Lagoon 380
for the last 3years. Does the sewaind slap - does it ever! The problem I discovered is this.
Seawind did not design the boat - it was a design from 1990 but Seawind bought the hul mould and extended it to39ft as it was originally a 37ft hull
. they moved the transom forward to accomodate the swim platform and added the targa bar for the TEC 3. Problem is that the boat now pitches in rougher waters and sits lower in the water
than the original Australian design. Being 17 year old design it is good for coastal cruising being heavy but for live aboard it leaves a lot to be desired. The Lagoon 380
is however a much higher bridgedeck and better all round. Don't get the seawind. For liveaboard
you need prvisions as boy does the Seawind drop down on the waterline because its at optimum weight with all the tarega bar weight not originally designed for these hulls. Buy a L380 or similar. Happy cruising
