Description

Sundog is a rare 1996 Seawind 1000 XL 37′ performance cat with the highly desirable owners’ version layout.  Originally built as a standard 1000 she had two custom transom’s added which improves performance dramatically with longer waterline, and less squatting than her 33′ brethren.

Seawinds are fast well built Australian catamarans.

Sundog has solar power, a 20 GPH watermaker , a full compliment of electronics including GPS, AIS, VHF and Autopilot, an open bridgedeck with soft top canvas that gives great shade and protection and excellent ventilation.

‘Sundog’, has been extended to 37′, and is one of Australia’s most popular sailing catamarans.

She represents fantastic value for a boat capable of sleeping 8 adults and entertaining many more.

She is designed to cope with the rugged and variable conditions of Australia’s coastline and is widely considered a great ocean going yacht due to design features such as flared hulls for additional buoyancy, double point reefed mainsail to easily de-power, and foam core construction for additional strength, just to name a few.”

The open layout and the appeal of remaining flat will suit the novice sailor and the live-aboard nature of the catamaran, make this a boat for exploring the coastline and inlets in comfort.

Sundog’ is an excellent live aboard catamaran for the tropics with tons of ventilation and an excellent entertainment platform! For the daytime party, a large open foredeck with bench seating and two trampolines allow for great relaxation and unique views under sail. When you need to cool down, a drop down swim stair allows easy access to the crystal clear waters of the Bahamas, the San Blas Islands of Panama, or the Australian Gold Coast. The large bimini and vinyl forward enclosure provides plenty of protection from the tropical sun, but if you want some shade in the water grab a pool noodle and spend some time hiding between the hulls under the bridgedeck. If you feel like inviting half the anchorage over for sundowners, rum punch and chilled beers are enjoyed with plenty of seating to view the green flash.

She’s en route to Florida now.  Call to make an appointment to see this exceptional catamaran.

Hull and Deck

Sundog has a generous 19'5" beam.  Here wide stance reduces hull wave interference and improves performance, creating extra stability able to handle more mainsail area.

Her design features fixed mini keels amidship giving excellent pointing ability, twin spade rudders, twin wheel helms with twin screws on her outboard motors.

Given the extra waterline length of the Seawind 37 she'll track better over the waves, with minimal hobby horse motion and little tendency to squat when under engine power.

The extra long transoms also make for great boarding from the dinghy of access from the swim ladder.

Additional Information

'Sundog' is an excellent live aboard catamaran for the tropics with tons of ventilation and an excellent entertainment platform! For the daytime party, a large open foredeck with bench seating and two trampolines allow for great relaxation and unique views under sail. When you need to cool down, a drop down swim stair allows easy access to the crystal clear waters of the Bahamas, the San Blas Islands of Panama, or the Australian Gold Coast.

If you feel like inviting half the anchorage over for sundowners, rum punch and chilled beers are enjoyed with plenty of seating to view the green flash.

The systems on the boat are easy to maintain and, another great selling feature for novices like us, the Seawind 1000 sails well and is easily single-handed with a self-tacking jib and the running rigging lead back to the cockpit for safe sail handling. For the performance minded sailor, an owner that races a sister boat in Miami said that he regularly sails at, or near, wind speed in 10 to 15 knots. If you know how to sail it, this boat will fly!

 Extensive galley gear, bedding, towels, spare parts, Toyota Sewing Machine and a coupla tools!

Fire Extinguishers: Three, mounted in cockpit & midships in each hull.
