Now sleeps 7+. Since Windswept 2 was originally listed, there have been changes to accommodation so the catamaran can now accommodate 7+ guests.
Additions include: Two generous 1.95m single berths added to create four separate sleeping areas. Total of two double berths and three single berths.
Windswept 2 is one of the most spectacular and iconic performance catamarans in Australia is for sale at a fraction of the replacement cost, and it is very rare to find a boat that can break records and win races yet can be sailed comfortably by a couple cruising or family.
This Southern Ocean 56ft catamaran won an industry award for the Crowther design team and was professionally built by Hart Marine in Melbourne with an all-carbon composite construction.
Continually improved and successfully campaigned by the previous owner with numerous wins, including five Brisbane to Gladstone line honours and race record, and today still holds a WSSRC (World Speed Sailing Record Council) record for the fastest multihull under 60ft. In full race mode she is capable of over 400nm days and speeds of 28+ knots.
If you just want to cruise, then, as the current owners experienced, put in two reefs and use the small furling staysail and stroll along at 10 knots with a massive safety and performance margin.
Windswept 2 has been completely upgraded and refitted by the current owner with a new interior and exterior makeover completed in 2017/18 including;
- New 21.5m mast and rigging
- Freshly painted topsides and signage
- New and improved cable and tiller arm steering system
- New carbon McConaghy steering wheels
- New carbon davits
- Carbon mainsail
- New Staysail
- New trampolines
- New electrics
- 4 x New solar panels & MMPT charging system
- 4 x 100a/h house batteries
- New B&G plotter and much more
Windswept 2 is of the most beautiful, exciting and stable catamarans in the world, and with shorthanded use and safety being a priority she has been re-rigged with a brand new aluminium Allyacht spars mast with upper and lower shrouds, inner and outer forestays. She is set up to use a staysail, solent and/or screecher, all easily handled by a couple with relaxing off-wind cruising speeds easily achieved using the small furling staysail only. If you want to go faster, just put up the main, solent and/or screecher and leave almost every other boat in your wake.
Accommodation is minimalist yet comfortable and practical, although enough berths are available for seven people. The large cockpit can easily handle 10+ seated with a huge area forward on the tramps for water toys or just lounging around.
The central pod has well over 6ft headroom in main saloon. There is seating for 4-6 around the saloon table (which drops down to make a small double or large single berth) and there is also an additional two-seater lounge, which converts to additional benchtop space.
The galley has ample storage and is fitted with a two-burner gas cooker and sink unit, with hot and cold water and a 110Lt fridge/freezer all running off solar power. Entertainment is provided by a large LCD TV and Fusion stereo with internal and external speakers.
In the central cabin there are two double berths with storage and another LCD TV. The forward head area contains toilet and shower, as well as anchor chain and more storage lockers. In addition, each hull has a 1.95m single berth good for an adult or two children.
Windswept 2 is powered by 2 Yanmar 30hp saildrive engines in the hulls with additional storage for sails, fenders, spare fuel & water. Anchoring is easily managed from the cockpit using the auto-anchor control system in conjunction with a Muir winch and Sarca Excel anchor with 60m chain and 40m rode.
Windswept 2 is an exciting catamaran that can be competitively raced or can provide a comfortable home for a cruising couple or family, as demonstrated by the current owners who recently spent eight months living aboard cruising the Queensland & NSW coast.
This is a rare opportunity to own a bulletproof ALL-Carbon catamaran with a unique combination of fast sailing, comfort and intoxicating looks.
