Hard to imagine actually wanting to sleep in those circumstances!?!

Never seen these boats by the way, just going on their spec and age and so on.

So it appears that Seawinds are starting to meet the market.
Which boats sold for a reasonable price? The only boat I know to have sold was Double-Wide (which I believe was a private sale so the sale price is unknown). Lanaki has been listed as "pending" for three months so I'm doubtful that sale will go through. Definitely interested in any hard data you can share, thanks!

I can imagine heavy weather disabling a boat and taking on water for all sorts of reasons and while waiting for rescue wanting to get some rest in a bunk above the water level.

As I said I hope I never would have to do this but still like to keep the option open.

Given the materials used in construction, multiple chambers, weight, and design it is hard for me to see how a Seawind (or any modern multihull sinking). On the other hand I can envision heavy weather or hitting something resulting in the boat taking on water in one or both of the hulls.

While I understand the comment of staying in the salon it is more exposed and a dismasting might damage the roof of the salon, even destroy it completely.

Since there seems to be at least some agreement that cats normally don't sink, I have to wonder if you really think sinking is a worry. Not to mention how you rate the wisdom of designing a boat to deal with a survival situation.

There seems to be a few of those spirited 380's that have tried, along with a well documented lagoon 450! That did go under???

Re: Why. Used Seawind is so much Higher Price than Lagoon

Most cats do not sink because they are certified not to. CE Ocean rated.
Here is one that was de-mast in a storm and floated across the Caribbean until someone decided to salvage her.

No boat is exempt from sinking. I believe a Seawind 1000 sank in Victoria a number of years ago. I'd like to find out more about that one but I can't seem to find anything on it.

Quote:
The CE marking or formerly EC mark, is a mandatory conformity marking for products sold in the European Economic Area (EEA) since 1993.[1] The CE marking is the manufacturer's declaration that the product meets the requirements of the applicable EC directives.[2]
As you can see, that's because the CE rating is a European standard. Once the vessel leaves the European region, it can sink, but it won't sink near Europe :-)


From what I was told, there were 2 x Seawinds operating out of Melbourne on charters, often sailing together. These two were out one time (not on a charter I believe) and one of them hit the bottom when trying to get into the Port Albert entrance at night. It borke up and was lost. The other one waited I believe; I can't recall exactly but it may have gone onto Port Welshpool instead where it was a safer bet.
