you don't make that many catamarans without getting something right. Seawinds have an excellent name and with that goes very good resale. Plenty of people have sailed the 1250's little sister the 1000 over the worlds oceans.
You don't advise of what your intentions are to do with the boat so its a bit hard to say if a boat will do what you want. I sail a Lagoon
410. When looking the Seawinds were definitely on my short list but a galley
up and cockpit
layout as well as the purchase price
one the day.
is a very broad term to a lot of people. I consider my Lagoon
equipped to cross oceans there fore blue water
capable, others may challenge that. We have sailed parts
of the east coast
and are preparing the boat to go further north this year then hopefully Asia
next year. Would the Seawind
1250 be capable of the same thing. Absolutely Provided it is prepared and sailed accordingly, as all boats should be.
If you go to the Seawind
site you will find they have an owners forum. Join and I am sure you will amass a wealth of information. Just as a side comment there is a Seawind rally being organised to for the Whitsundays later in the year. Its an excellent opportunity to hire a 1250. Sail in company with Seawind owners and judge for yourself if the boat is for you. Yep it will cost a few buck but you get a holiday, test drive and lots of fun thrown in.
