Grand Yachts Inc. Introduces theNew Seawind 1160 LITE
In 2004, Seawind Catamarans launched the 38ft Seawind 1160… a ground breaking and innovative design that gained worldwide acclaim for its clever layout and use of space, ergonomic design and efficient short-handed sailing performance. Well over 100 Seawinds have been launched since then and many are crossing the world’s largest oceans.
The new Seawind 1160 LITE will feature the same resin infused construction and same hull, deck, rig, sails and the famous Trifold door system of the previous Seawind 1160, however the design teams have gone back to the drawing board on how to streamline the design to offer a robust cruising cat at a very attractive price.
The new Seawind 1160 LITE will be one of the most versatile multihulls on the market with a new sleek design and modern interior that is ideal for family blue-water cruising and set up for single handed sailing. The new LITE version will also change from the traditional diesel sail drives to lighter 20hp Honda (of 25hp Yamaha) outboard engines with an electric tilt.
The first 1160 LITE will arrive before the end of the year and will be displayed at the Vancouver & Seattle boat shows.
