Anybody know this boat?

Hi all,

Was wondering if anybody has heard of seawind yaghts. I was looking at a 1977 41' seawind cutter and it has a very nice interior layout and l like that it is cutter rigged. Does anyone know anything about the reputation/seaworthiness/quality of these boats? I have had a hard time getting info on them.

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

That boat has a huge interior. There is one for sale on Yacht world that has some great pictures. It tells who the designer was and that a Tech school in Washington helped with the design. What that mean, I have no idea. I would post the link but I am a newbie.

Interesting. The layout does not match the photos. They must have done some custom interiors. The galley is not setup well for offshore work.

The interior wheel with the little viewing area around the companionway hatch is something I have not seen before. Not sure what the purpose is. I would not want to be standing on the ladder steering the boat in bad weather.

Also, the rudder that hangs out beyond the transom looks like an afterthought or a correction to the original design.

There is a reference to Seawind on Good Old Boat. ALso an email address of someone who has a 31.

Yes, interesting interior. Ever seen a 41' with a workshop? I might choose to renovate into a "spare room/office" lol but still nice to have a blank space to make into something cool! What would you guys do with a space like that-

It looks like it would end up a catch all for anything and everything. I kinda like the workshop - pretty cool!

No...the seawind referenced in Good Old Boat is the Allied Seawind II and the person with the '31' probably actually has the original Allied Seawind 30....which is sometimes called a 31 because it is 30'6" on deck...rounding off to 31.

The 41 foot Seawind referenced above in the links has absolutely NOTHING to do with Allied Seawinds.

With that said:
Other than my own Al;lied Seawind ketch and the Allied Seawind II ketch, I had never heard of another boat called Seawind besides the Seawind catamaran company. So when I heard about this 'seawind' I was hoping it wouldn't be something like a Catalina or Hunter.

While it DID turn out to be a no-sheer fin keeler....it does sound well made. That IS a strange rudder, but at least it has a skeg !

Seems heavily laid-up fiberglass....and it sounds like the keel is fiberglass encapsulated lead, rather than bolted on steel, which is good.

I like the dedicated chart table and the amount of strength-inducing bulkeads through out.

I also like the attempt at a centerline galley sink.

Nice big head.......workable forward cabin.

And I think the side-ways steering station and throttle/gear shift, while it may take getting used to, is actually pretty cool when motoring or motor-sailing in sheety weather. It sure seems out of the way!

Looks like only 4 were made, which is probably why no one's heard of them.

All in all......not a bad boat.
