The new Seawind 1160 Lite is a 38’ catamaran from the Seawind/Corsair stable. This is one of the most versatile multihulls on the market with a modern interior ideal for family blue-water cruising and set up for single handed sailing.
Well over 100 Seawinds have been launched and many are crossing the worlds largest oceans.

The Lite model has changed from the traditional diesel sail drives to 25hp Yamaha outboards with electric tilts which tuck the engines into compartments under the twin helm seats. This makes for a much lighter boat, no drag whilst sailing, no growth on legs, no electrolysis, low maintenance and increased internal storage.

A full width cockpit hardtop and the Seawinds famous tri-folding door door system make an enormous indoor/outdoor space. The new interior is contemporary with a neutral colour palette.
Our first 1160 Lite arrives before the end of the year and will be displayed at the Vancouver and Seattle boat shows. It features 3 double staterooms, two heads and a very large galley. We have outfitted the boat for our climate with diesel heat and a fully enclosed cockpit.

Grand Yachts Inc. with offices in Port Sidney and Coal Harbour , Vancouver BC are the Seawind dealers for the Pacific Northwest – Oregon, Washington, Canada and Alaska.

Serious Fun at the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta

By Allegra Smith-Herriott

As the plane started its descent, bright blue skies gave way to crystal clear turquoise waters as we skimmed over the famous Maho Beach. Exiting the airport, I was hit with a wall of warm salty air from the northeast trade winds. Nothing compares to arriving in the Caribbean.

From the airport, I headed to the Regatta Village in Port de Plaisance. Wednesday being ‘Day 0’ was registration day of the Regatta. Teams were out on the water to shake out sails, on the docks making last-minute preparations and in the Regatta Village for registration and most importantly picking up their cases of Heineken.
