Introducing the new Seawind 1260

A cruising catamaran specifically designed for serious blue water cruising. The result was the Seawind 1260, 41ft of the best ideas, engineering and craftsmanship accumulated by a team of expert builders. The 1260 is based off the prior 1250 with some new upgrades and refinements.

Indoor/outdoor, open lifestyle, with an unbeatable living area!

The new 1260 features the same unique ventilation system as on our other models – combining ventilation in the cabins, the forward opening windows, and the tri-fold doors to draw air through the boat even in the most serene conditions. 

Cruising World Magazine named the Seawind 1260 as the Best Sailing Catamaran Under 50 feet in 2018. We explore why by taking you on a test sail on board the Seawind 1260 and show the unique twin helm design and other innovative characteristics that make the Seawind 1260 a winner.

The 41ft Seawind 1260 is a product of the best ideas, engineering and craftsmanship accumulated by the Seawind Catamarans team of expert builders and designers.

The Australian indoor/outdoor, open lifestyle is entrenched in this new design, with an unbeatable living area complimented with brilliant natural ventilation, protected cockpit lounge, and social helm seats putting the skipper in control as well as in the conversation. Best of all, you can enjoy what many cats compromise on… “visibility”‘ for the skipper AND crew, with 360 degree views from the helm and saloon seats all within the protection of the fiberglass coachouse and targa roof.

Twin helm positions are a must have for any true sailor, the Seawind 1260 offer the perfect balance between excellent 360 degree visibility and total protection from the weather in any conditions, whilst always offering the skipper full control and comfortable navigation around the cockpit.

ALL controls are at your fingertips and use Seawind’s refined short handed sailing optimization system to provide ultimate control from the helm, avoiding the need to go forward for virtually any task! When attempting long ocean passages with friends and family, this type of safety and design practicality gives owners confidence not only in their boats ability but also for the safety of themselves and their family.
