Seller's Description

We have a walkthrough listing video here: youtu.be/okTQ7-c4iF4

Extensive project/improvements list with project photos available upon request.

Seawind is an exceptional example of the capable Allied Seawind 32 with the rare factory optional Marconi cutter rig. The original Allied Seawind was the first fiberglass boat to circumnavigate the world, and in 1975, the second version of this boat designed by naval architect Tom Gilmer began production.

The slightly larger and beamier Seawind II has comfortable accommodations, including a huge amount of storage space. Its heavy displacement, full keel with a protected rudder and propeller aperture, and a fine entry of the bow give the Allied Seawind II a gorgeous and seaworthy hull shape. The Allied Seawind II was overbuilt to be a strong and capable bluewater sailboat. This strong platform and successful lineage of the Seawinds design was the foundation for creating the boat you see in this listing.

Seawind is hull #89 of approximately 130 and has undergone a massive restoration from 2016-2022, and now, she is in many ways much stronger than factory. All of the work has been done with the best materials and with future preservation and serviceability in mind. Every system was designed with simplicity and reliability at the forefront. Seawinds restoration was done on Lake Erie where she spent her life in fresh water. The benefits of being in fresh water are apparent in the bronze and stainless fittings above and below the water, the aluminum mast and spars, as well as the trusty Bukh DV20 diesel engine. Her full keel and protected rudder with 4.5 draft means that shallow anchorages are no issue. Weighing in at 15,000lbs dry with 5,800lbs encapsulated lead ballast, she remains upright in a breeze, is sea kindly, and always feels strong and safe. Parker and Katy have been meticulous with her care and maintenance.

Seawind is an absolutely TURN KEY boat with comfortable living accommodations, superb sailing characteristics.

Hull Speed
6.5 kn
Classic: 6.77 kn

Hull Speed

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.


Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

A more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

6.46 knots
Classic formula: 6.77 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
<16: under powered

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.


SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
<40: less stiff, less powerful

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.


Ballast / Displacement * 100

<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
>350: ultraheavy

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.


D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.


Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
<2.0: better suited for ocean passages

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.


CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising


See SEAWIND MKII KETCH (ALLIED) for more details.
Also called SEAWIND 32.
Updated vers. of SEAWIND 30. The Seawind II came to the market in 1975 as the successor to the original SEAWIND. Production of the SEABREEZE , LUDERS 33, and CHANCE 30-30 was stopped to fill orders for this new model. But the price was much higher and customers continued to order the old version instead. For a while both models were being built at the same time while sales of the new version remained weak, the economy slowed and the company approached melt down.
Available as staysail ketch, cutter, or sloop (rare). Rack & pinion (on deck) wheel steering was standard.
