'Skywalker' is a Seawind 1190 Sport Catamaran, a model that unlocks the full performance potential of the award-winning Seawind 1160 design.
'Skywalker' is built lighter, stronger, and more powerful with a larger sail plan and lifting carbon daggerboards tucked below deck. Extensive use of carbon fiber in high-stress areas and a reinforced bowsprit makes for a boat built to handle the strong pressures expected from a high performance-seeking sailor.
This Seawind 1190 Sport began in San Francisco as a brand new catamaran shipped from the Seawind Factory in Ho Chi Min City, Vietnam. Her first owners sailed her under the name 'Half Moon' to the Baja for a season, and further to Zihuatanejo and Costa Rica. Wright Yachts assisted in the transport of 'Half Moon' to arrive via cargo ship to the Pacific Northwest so she could be available to our market, a market that has never had a Seawind 1190 Sport before in 2019. Since, The vessel has been in Canada, on the hard mostly while awaiting the travel restriction lift. And after one season of cruising, the new owners of now 'Skywalker' have made her available for sale.

The Seawind 1190 Sport builds on the design and stunning success of the Seawind 1160, of which some 150 have been built and are sailing all over the world.
The new cabin moulding and extended hulls combine to form a profile that looks much longer than its actual 300mm in extra length. Continuing the sheer line aft, integrating the new hard top into the cabin top, changing the window profiles and having a carbon clear coat finish to the targa arch, all combine to create a look with is sleek and lower in profile
The ‘Sport’ variant of the range has dagger boards and lift up rudders rather than low aspect ratio keels, providing between 5 to 7 degrees higher pointing angle to windward. Both the ‘Lite’ and the ‘Sport’ models use twin electrically raised 20hp outboards, instead of inboard diesels which provides a huge advantage in reduced drag and weight aft. The rudders on the Sport are lifting foils similar to those fitted in the companies Corsair trimaran range. The efficient use of an appropriate family of tested components makes sense and also simplifies parts support.
The boat is about 6 tonnes, which is about 20% lighter than the original 1160. The big difference is that without the buoyancy of the hollow keels, and the diesel engines towards the stern, the weights, always relatively well centered, are now firmly where they belong. The weight savings have been achieved without sacrificing any strength of toughness in the build, but rather by reducing the resin content with the increasing application of resin infusion and careful quality control. In addition, unnecessary interior components have been eliminated.
Doyle supplies aramid sails included in the standard package and an asymmetric spinnaker, which is comfortable in anything between 90 and 140 degrees apparent. The Sport is also rigged for a Code Zero, with sheets coming back to sliding fairleads beside the cabin top.
Recent design trends have tended to favour rectilinear lines and light colours. The new 1190 embodies this trend, with a light grey flooring used throughout the interior and light grey trims. These contrast in an attractive way with finished white interior linings, occasional dark accent and stainless steel hardware and plumbing fixtures. The overall impression is one of light and openness, yet not at the expense of practicality. Hand holds are still where they need to be. The ‘ground level’ galley provides great views out, lots of light and a secure working environment, while leaving the seating area open and uncluttered.
The Sport with its dagger boards is offered in a three cabin owner version. The impact of the board casings is virtually non-existent opposite the port navigation station area, and divides the galley into a prep/washing area and cooking area, opposite a continuous counter. The island berth on the port side in the master stateroom allows easy access to either side. All three cabins have extensive storage and hanging lockers. The enormous heads have a large separate walk in shower. One of the great features of this boat has always been the very effective internal ventilation.
