I guess it is a move to where here is no min wage, to make a boat that will sell all over the world at a competive price. I know it stinks to have manufactoring move to other countries just to make a buck, the USA has had the same problem. I hope the quality doesn't suffer.

Re: Seawind Catamarans

Australia needs to remember that it is selling to the world, not just the wealthy 1 or 2% of Australia.

Re: Seawind Catamarans

I would be very sad to see the Seawind brand go ... Ana and I love the Seawind Catamaran we chartered in Australia ... a well balanced all around lovely boat to sail on ...

Re: Seawind Catamarans

bazcatana,

Tone it down.
Read the rules

We take the "be nice" rule VERY seriously! We do not tolerate ANY rudeness.

95% of boat owners love their boats, so your math is off.
You’re close to getting unplugged.
Start making friends and not enemies.

Re: Seawind Catamarans

Members will note this thread has gotten considerably shorter. Post that did not pertain to the thread have been deleted. Please refrain from commenting on any of these; let's get back to the topic of discussing the issue of Seawind.

Thanks,

Re: Seawind Catamarans

I hope they can come through, not an easy economy at the moment. For a buyer It is always nice to have a choice of a smaller more bespoke builders as opposed to a production line pumping out cats at the cheapest possible price.

I really wish people would stop posting pictures of my Motoryacht without my permission!

I can see your MotorYacht on the back of that one in the piccy,

Most other people would call it a small dinghy.
