Cruising World Judges named the Seawind 1260 Best Cruising Catamaran Under 50 Feet.

The Seawind 1260 is built by Seawind most experienced shipwrights (many who have been with the company for over a decade), in a new production facility located in Vietnam - using resin infusion technology, for superior structural quality and strength - all standard on a Seawind but necessary if you are going to cruise around the world.


The overall finish of the Seawind 1260 will be consistent with a luxury world-standard yacht of this size and type. Only very high-quality equipment is used throughout. 

The overall aim is for a level of construction, workmanship, equipment, fit out and style that surpasses any other comparable catamaran available in the market at this price range. 


Finish: Full female molded hulls & decks, exterior gel coat finish with molded-in non-slip surface on deck

Hull Laminate: Vinyl Ester (Modified epoxy) resin laminate of the hulls between the gel coat and the foam
