S/V Katabatic is a 2012 Seawind 1000 XL2 catamaran, decked out and ready to sail anywhere, for sale by owner.

The new 2012 1000XL2 model is vacuumed bagged vs the non-vacuumed bag construction of the 1000XL. It is is 1000lbs lighter and performs better under sail than the 1000XL model. The vessel was built using good materials and accepted modern construction techniques. The hull is strengthened by fiberglassed tabbed bulkheads, structural members, and fittings.

All systems aboard are installed to ABYC A-1 standards using quality materials and installation techniques.

Wear and tear on Katabatic is consistent with light use and age. The carpeted hull lining is well adhered. The hardwood joiner work is to a good standard and has a good overall appearance. The decks are free from clutter. The bow, stern rails in addition to the lifeline and stanchions give a feeling of security while moving on deck. The non-skid molded pattern helps with footing. The bow trampoline is nicely tensioned and properly secured.

The hulls were inspected and sighted by eye, there is no evidence of structural deficiencies or deformities of the hulls or bridgedeck. Percussion testing of the hull indicated no loose laminates, core deterioration or voids. All partitions, bulkheads, stringers, and fiberglass fastenings were examined where accessible and found to be in good condition. No evidence of movement or deficiencies were noted on the forward, midship or aft crossbeams where they interface with the hulls. No elevated relative moisture was recorded on the hull.

Katabatic is very fast, almost windspeed on some points of sail and sails flat on the water with little heel.

She is ready for you to sail away.
