seeking information on the seawind 24 catamaran

I am interested in anyone who can give information on performance and construction quality of the seawind 24 catamaran. I am considering purchasing a used one. I nwould need to find a trailer since the boat does not come with one. Any information on the specs of the factory built trailer that originally came with the boat would be helpfull. Thanks George

The Seawind catamarans as a group are fairly well constructed. I'd point out that they're still in business and while the SW24 is discontinued, they do make a fair number of other ones.

The specifications for the SW24 can be seen HERE.

I would highly recommend that you write the company, since they're still around, to get more information ont he boat as well as the trailer. They probably have some information, possibly the owner's manual and such, for the boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

The Seawind 24s are a single skin fiberglass hull. They were built on the light side and have not been made in about twenty years. Some of them that have been well used are a little soft. They also tend to show wear at the beam connections. Some 300 boats were built in FL so there are lots of them around. Look for cracks around the centerboard trunks.

Re: seeking information on the seawind 24 catamaran

I have had 3 of these boats and one of them just came back into my keep as a broker. Hands down the best cat of that size. I rather be on a Seawind that a Stiletto when the wind and waves pick up. Especially if I'm single handed. no fear on the Seawind and nothing ever broke even when I was sailing is weather I shouldn't have been out in. The boat can take more than you can.
