Next generation Seawind 1000XL2 launched

by Seawind on 26 Aug 2011
From the initial launch, the Seawind 1000 was awarded “Australian Cruising Boat of the Year”. Seawind Catamarans
This week Seawind Catamarans celebrated the launch of the first next generation Seawind 1000XL2 in Wollongong, which has since been delivered to its new owners in Brisbane.

From the initial launch of the Seawind 1000 when it was awarded 'Australian Cruising Boat of the Year', being the first time this award had been bestowed to a catamaran, the locally designed and built Seawind 1000 firmly marked its position in the marine industry as the most successful cruising sailboat built in the country with 217 now complete.

Through a number of refinements and product developments with the input of customers, the design has evolved into a cruising boat that represents excellent value for money, efficient performance and sea going ability, optimised short handed control and a comfortable yet very practical layout for Australian conditions. Now with the new XL2 series, this classic design now benefits from a new list of refinements.

The Seawind 1000XL2 will now have a range of new and significant features to enhance onboard comfort and livability for cruising couples and families. These include:
• Fiberglass Hardtop Extension: Extending out over the helm and cockpit, the hardtop will provide further protection from the elements in place of the soft bimini covers.
• Galley & Saloon Hatch: This opening will allow the chef to easily pass up food from the galley into the saloon, plus open up the galley with more ventilation, light and direct communication through to the saloon.
• Folding Saloon Table: A beautiful timber saloon table will be an outstanding showpiece of the cockpit, with very practical application thanks to its foldaway sides allowing easy access to the end seating in the saloon.
• Lightweight Construction: Using the expertise at Corsair Marine, the Seawind 1000XL2 is now fully vacuum bagged using woven fiberglass materials. This technique not only makes the boat stronger, but has also reduced overall weight by up to 500kgs.

Now it is also true that it’s made even more so because it was Italian designers Nuvolari and Lenard that gave the vessel her smart looks to match the words from their language. However, reigning supreme over it all is that the craft stays true to the original premise of what the term actually means.

Debbie says there are 7Ps and 1C with Insurance If you have been on the planet or around boats long enough, you’ll know all about the 7Ps. The one ‘C’ mentioned here refers to consequence, and in the legalese that surrounds insurance, it gets applied distinctly to consequential damage. We’ll come back to all of that in a while, but for now, our mission is to look at the consequences of actions prior to TC Debbie making landfall.

Securely moored to the quay, or cast adrift?
With boating, you have to cast the lines off in order to go and get into it. With boating, you have to cast the lines off in order to go and get into it. However, when it comes to your insurer, you kind of expect that they’re going to be as bound to you as the standing rigging is to the mast, the ring frames to the hull, or the engine mounts to the runners, and the propellers to the shafts, skegs and cutlass bearings. Whom would you rather be insured with?

Aquila 44 – Lots to love

There is something about the Aquila 44, her own je ne sais quoi, if you like. Proportionally she is just right, everything is in the correct place, and with a modern flair, yet one that is not going to date overnight. I think her presence is in her stance, which is kind of funny, given she is a cat.
