Seawind 1600

Hi

I have looked at all of the videos for this boat and on face value it looks pretty good. However, I cannot find anything other than a bit of fluff drone footage of the sailing ability of this boat.

Has anybody actually sailed this boat or has any detail on its performance other than polars which, until substantiated, mean very little.

Re: Seawind 1600

It's a brand new boat, with only hull 1 built. Not many outside of the factory will have sailed it yet

It is not actually the first hull , there has already been 2 other boats built some time back but now the boat has been modernised on the interior and branded as a Seawind.

The 1600 hulls are very narrow compared to a FP or Lagoon so if you keep the boat light it should sail very well.

cheers

Here's a nice walk through from Multihull World. Man, it looks like a nice boat.

Strange that despite showing the boat in Barcelona and carrying out sea trials and having the magazines on board there is absolutely no reference to the boats sailing ability.
