NEW Seawind 1600 Passagemaker in Southern California


Designed by world renowned naval architects Reichel Pugh, this 52 foot catamaran is the perfect balance of cruising comfort and performance sailing. Using high end composite construction materials and techniques, the Seawind 1600 Passagemaker is pitched at the sailor who is looking for something a little extra. With simple sailing systems, twin protected helms and a large open cockpit space, this blue water cruising catamaran sets a new standard for offshore sailing.

As Seawind’s flagship blue water cruiser, this catamaran offers state of the art equipment and a world class luxury fitout. The 1600 interior will be offered in both “European” as shown in the images included here, and “Traditional” finishes. The overall aim is for a level of construction, workmanship, equipment, fitout and style that surpasses any other comparable catamaran available in the market at this price range.

Backed by the 30+ year success of Seawind Catamarans in building high quality, performance cruising catamarans, the Seawind 1600 Passagemaker Catamaran takes its place as one of the worlds most luxurious high performance cruising catamarans.

Upgrades/Changes in the Passagemaker Edition vs original 1600:

  • Slightly beamier hulls with even more use of carbon and kevlar reinforcement gives greater strength and load carrying capacity, as well as interior volume, including larger cabins/bunks forward with additional stowage options. Also reversed bows – this is an entirely new hull form from new molds.
  • 5cm More bridgedeck clearance to further minimize wave slap.
  • Larger mast cross section for increased strength, negating the need for an inner forestay.
  • Larger ports and windows, including panoramic windows down in the hulls to bring more light into the interior.
  • New 24v based electrical system creates greater efficiency and control while reducing cable weight (200kg).
  • The anchoring setup has been moved aft to the midpoint of the longaron, reducing forward weight and bowsprit clutter.
