Seawind Catamarans well known for ground breaking and innovative design, gaining worldwide acclaim for its 1160's clever layout and use of space, ergonomic design and efficient sailing performance. Now Seawind brings you the 1160 LITE, one of the most noticeable differences on board is the new sleek interior design and fit out. The timber kit is replaced with lightweight and stylish laminate surfaces, with a new contemporary neutral colour palette as specified by Seawind's interior stylist. The upholstery is modern, angular, yet practical with wearing sophisticated Sunbrella fabric.
The Seawind 1160 LITE also changes from the traditional diesel sail drives to lighter 25hp Yamaha outboard engines with electric tilt.
The layout remains largely unchanged from the 1160's though the ensuite on the starboard forward cabin has been replaced with a walk in wardrobe and wet locker.
The galley is simplified with an upright fridge/freezer and 3 burners stove while still offering the same amount of storage with ring lockers, a handy shelf and plenty of cupboard space - far more in fact than in larger cats with galley up designs.

The Sailing cat handled herself admirably and the staff were great. Provisions completed the day before with a sleep aboard. Overall a great week with good company. It is amazing how much food you can consume on the water and yes it included some wine. Would not recommend February due to the heat. Our next trip June / July.
