Seawind 1000XL 'XLR8'

Room for Everyone!

Our Seawind 1000XL ‘XLR8’ is available for skippered and bareboat yacht charter on Pittwater.

Seawind Catamarans are perfect charter boats for Australian conditions. There’s ample deck room for your whole party to relax in comfort and a large hard covered saloon to shade you from the sun.

Non-sailors will love the fact that sailing catamarans don’t heel (lean-over). And the more experienced members of your party will love the agility twin engines provide and the speed under sail.

Seawind 1000XL Reviews

We particularly like the extended hard cockpit cover which means you have much more shaded area in the cockpit and the extended hulls which increase performance and allow easier access after swimming and from the marina or dinghy.
