Thanks to the successfully completed restructuring and numerous innovative developments – such as the Sealine S330, F530 and C430 – Sealine has relaunched itself back to a competitive sports yacht brand. The new arrival of the Sealine F430, a flybridge yacht that breaks all records in its class, is testament to the new direction under the Hanse group ownership. The WSB team take a closer look at this new arrival.
The new Sealine F430 offers plenty of space for up to six people on its three decks – also on longer voyages. The early 14 sqm flybridge is the highlight of this luxury yacht. It features a U-shaped seating group and gourmet wetbar, in addition to a spacious sun lounge. Up to two fridges round out the first-class space under the sun. The layout variants below deck range from two to three double cabins with queen-sized beds, a novelty for a yacht of this size.
A sensation in boat construction is the floor-to-ceiling windows providing a 360° panoramic view. The hull has been specially engineered to make the most of the IPS drive from Volva Penta as standard. The special flybridge For the new F430, the flybridge concept has been implemented to meet the highest standards in design, functionality and materials.
Across its nearly 14 sqm, the new flybridge offers a dining area with seating for six people and an all-in-one gourmet wetbar featuring a barbecue, sink and lighting.
Guests can enjoy the view over the water to its fullest from two double seats in the front area of the flybridge. The seat at the backboard can be positioned in any preferred direction thanks to a swivel backrest, and together with an additional cushion, can be turned into a large sun lounge next to the helm.
Two fridges can be integrated into the seats to keep drinks cool even on long summer days. Another highlight of the backrest at the backboard is that it can be swivelled to turn the passenger seat into a lounge sofa at the flick of a wrist – for a breath-taking view astern.
Intelligent leverage of power thanks to IPS the Sealine F430 is equipped with two IPS 400 engines from the industry-leader Volva Penta as standard. With the connected joystick controller, the yacht can be easily manoeuvred in any situation; gliding into any slip is child’s play.
Above all, the helm on the flybridge offers an optimal, all-round overview. Thanks to the perfectly positioned joystick and steps, the helmsman can keep an eye on the end of the bathing platform at all times.
Luxurious interior – first-class quality with elegant materials The Sealine F430 can be customised to meet every taste and need. Along its 43 feet, the yacht can be fitted with three full double cabins on request. In the two-cabin layout, the master cabin is located mid-ship and features a width of an amazing 4.15 metres.
As part of the standard package, the cabins are adorned with genuine slate on the walls, exquisite leather panels on the bed and soft carpeting on the floor. On request, the interior can be complemented with piano lacquer and polished to give it a high-gloss finish.
The new Sealine F430 features four comfortable lounge areas for perfect moments at sea. Whether in the saloon or cockpit, on the flybridge or bow, each lounge offers space for up to six people and has been designed so that all guests can sit across from each other.
This means that the new F430 provides a magnificent amount of room, which normally is only known from 50-foot yachts. Both on the flybridge and on the stern, a gourmet wetbar with barbecue and sink can be integrated on request. As a result, the Sealine F430 can be equipped with two outdoor and one indoor kitchen – perfect for any occasion.
The new Sealine F430 is fitted with the Smart Boat System as standard. This enables the owner to control the systems of his yacht via the plotter or a tablet, and to call up information such as the diesel amount or water temperature. Thanks to the ultrasound sensors installed inside the tanks, all tank contents can be displayed with precision.
