Allied Seawind MKII

      

MANUFACTURER'S COMMENT

Two decades ago, the original Allied Seawind - a 30 footer-was the first fiberglass sailboat to circumnavigate. And since then other Seawind skippers have circled the globe as well, with perhaps the most famous being Scott and Kitty Kuhner in their beloved "Bebinka." The current Seawind II, at 32 feet, is a logical extension of the original Seawind design by naval architect Tom Gillmer, well-known for his ability to combine beauty and brawn with superb sailing ability and generous creature comforts. In developing the Seawind II, Gillmer drew upon the invaluable background provided by thousands of successful ocean-going Seawind miles in combination with his own vast experience as a designer and sailor. The Seawind II, with its long keel and medium displacement, provides maximum directional stability and superior performance on all points of sail, especially to windward. She's fast, even in light airs, stable, and surprisingly stiff. Handmade by American craftsmen on the shores of the Hudson River, the Seawind II is built to exceed Lloyds AAA specifications. Standard features include: solid fiberglass construction with end-grain balsa-cored deck and cabin top, all fittings through-deck bolted with back-up plates and S.S. washers, solid bronze seacocks, Awlgrip painted spars, ten bronze opening ports with screens, Edson rack-and-pinion steering system with custom teak and bronze wheel, extra heavy-duty extruded aluminum rub rail, 5-inch foam cushions and backrests, head-shower with separate vanity, generous use of teak on exterior and interior, full engine instrumentation, custom electrical panel, Hood working sails with covers, and much more. Ketch rig is standard, with cutter rig available as an option.
