This beautiful 2008 36′ Seawind is fresh out of the yard with a New bottom job and full exterior compound and wax May 2024. She is a nice clean boat which is fun to sail and includes numerous important recent upgrades such as new engines and sails in 2019, new standing, running rigging and lifelines 2022, new sailbag, new fuel tanks and fuel lines, new battery and charger, etc.

The Seawind Catamaran was designed specifically for ease of sailing and all-weather protection offering dual helms behind bulkhead and canopy protection, all lines lead to the cockpit, 360 degree visibility, and a nice open air salon to the cockpit with great ventilation through the boat. The bright open galley is down in the starboard hull allowing for a bigger galley with more storage and more space in the salon, and the cockpit has no fixed table allowing for more usable space. She also offers a unique hide away drop-down bow ladder for beach boarding. A must see…


Boarding vessel from the stern, there are sugar scoop transoms with stairs leading to the cockpit on both sides. The port side has a stainless folding swim ladder and a deck shower. Stainless handrails are located in the staircases.

Stepping up to the cockpit, there is a stainless arch aft with solar panels located above, seats located port and starboard, and a central gas bbq grill. Propane bottles are located underneath the seats, and a main sheet traveler is located at deck level. A tender davit system with blocks and tackle is located behind the arch. There is a stainless framed bimini top and extension panel that meets the aft arch located above. Port and stbd helms are located aft of the house with the stbd side having the engine controls and electronics. Seats are located at each helm with opening lids to access the outboard engines. All Halyards and sheets are lead aft to the cockpit for ease of sail handling, with two speed winches located on the cabin top, and winch handles in pockets at the helm seats. The cockpit is spacious due to no fixed table in this area.

Moving up to the foredeck, decks and cabin top are white with molded nonskid. There are stainless hand rails across the cabin top and opening hatches over the cabins with blue sunbrella covers and bug screens. All the way forward there is a retractable folding bow sprit that carries the screacher sail when in use. Centrally located is the anchor chute and anchor, and a Profurl roller furler that carries the headsail just aft. Outboard there are stainless pulpits with mounted running lights and fold down stainless framed seats with teak slatted removable tops. Stainless stanchions run down both sides with triple nylon coated life lines across all four sides of the boat. Dual trampolines are located inboard of the hulls with a hatch between them giving access to a very convenient retractable ladder for beach boarding. A second hatch just aft houses a spare Fortress anchor. There is a windlass with foot control just forward of the mast with opening lockers on both sides for anchor chain and deck gear storage. The aluminum mast is deck stepped with a stack pack and lazy jacks for ease of sail handling. The cabin house has 180 degree tinted glass windows for excellent visibility.

Moving into the open salon area, there is a U shaped dinette with upholstered cushions and a large dining table that will drop down and convert into a King size berth for extra guests. 12v LED lighting is located above and large storage is located beneath the settee.

Access to new fuel tanks is located under the sole beneath the table. Overhead is fiberglass with varnished wood decor planks running fore and aft. The salon is surrounded 180 degrees by tinted glass windows which gives excellent visibility to both the helmsman and guests. There are two large opening windows centrally located in the forward house offering great ventilation. There are opening lockers at the fwd end of the settee that contain the house and engine batteries with a selector switch to separate banks.

Moving down three steps into the stbd hull, there is a closeable companionway with a Kenwood stereo and VHF radio mounted just inside on the forward bulkhead and ignition switches and steering access panel on the aft bulkhead. Turning forward you have the galley with double sink basin with a tower type faucet and a spicket for water maker test sampling, countertop, and triple storage cabinets above and below located on the inboard side. A huge amount of galley storage is available with cabinetry also located on the outboard side as well with a frig and freezer accessed from the countertop. There is 12v red and white overhead LED lighting and a 12v fan mounted on the bulkhead. The sole is Amtico teak and holly.

A 12v power supply and USB port are located in the aft cabinet. Forward of the galley is a beige upholstered settee with a flip up table and bulkhead mounted fan, and forward again is a single berth with opening hatch above with mosquito screen. Moving aft, there is a double berth cabin with opening hatch, storage cabinet and privacy door. Headliners are white vinyl and cabinetry is satin finished Oak.

Moving down the stairs into the port side hull, at the top of the stairs aft is an opening cabinet with a custom tool rack, access to steering gear, and lightning disconnect switches. Once below, all the way aft is the head for the vessel with manual toilet, handheld shower, sink basin.

Moving forward the sole is Amtico. There is a hand-held fire extinguisher on the bulkhead and a door to close off the master cabin. Entering the master cabin on the inboard side is a raised double berth with a 12v LED light, reading light, and fan on the bulkhead above the berth. Outboard there is a shelf along the hull and a hanging storage hammock. Sole and headliner is a grey fuzzy type carpet.

Forward of the Master is a single berth with overhead opening hatch, desk top, and inboard and outboard storage lockers.

By Caroline @ The Multihull Company

I learned how to walk on a boat. I’ve cruised, raced and lived aboard in my youth. I too share your dream of perfect afternoon sails and secluded anchorages. I started as a yacht broker in 2000 and have had the opportunity to work with clients in the purchase and sale of almost every type of cruising catamaran on the water today. I have helped hundreds of clients purchase yachts new and used from 30’-77’ and have come across every type of situation and problem that may arise in a transaction.
