The new Sealine C530 has arrived in style, delivering a sense of class and sophistication rarely seen on cruisers of this size. The exterior incorporates numerous design features that embrace clever technology with smart design. The WSB team step on-board to welcome this new British cruiser.
The new Sealine S330 sports cruiser has been designed to be as sleek through the water as Hamilton’s F1 car is through the air, that’s just how good the new S330 looks on the water. Dr. Jens Gerhardt, CEO of the Hanse Group has unveiled the latest new model from Sealine which is set to see the brand take off once again after iconic British brand Sealine International was acquired by the Hanse Group in September last year, and this is the first new model to emerge from the German based manufacturer. The S330 is a ground breaking 33ft sports cruiser designed by British designer Bill Dixon. With several innovative features the new model is certain to set new standards in this class of sports motor boats.
Sealine will be unveiling, at the Tullett Prebon London Boat Show, an animated walkthrough of their revolutionary new sports cruiser, the SC42, due for launch next summer. The SC42 is a bold and innovative new design offering more social space than on any other cruiser of this size. Perfect for outdoor living, the SC42 can be transformed from wind in the hair boating to full protection in a matter of seconds. The craft features a unique full length, soft top convertible roof system and large opening side windows which let in the light and the fresh air.
Sealine have released plans of their new F42 flybridge cruiser, due for launch at the 2010 Southampton Boat Show. The current F42/5, the new F42 offers unrivalled space for entertaining throughout the craft, whilst building on the practical cruising capabilities of the hugely successful F42/5. The F42 has a significantly larger flybridge due to the extended design first offered on the F46 (launched in September). There is space for six to dine in comfort around the large dining table, plus the ability to create a large sun bed aft by simply folding down the backrest on the rear seats. There is a central double helm, two further forward facing seats, a large cool box and spacious storage locker.
The single level deck has a three part sliding door joining the cockpit to the saloon, providing excellent connectivity. In the saloon, a comfortable L shaped seating area is on the starboard side with further seating on the port side. The seating area can easily be converted into an occasional double berth. The open plan galley is located forward. The feeling of space and light is created with the large wrap around windscreen which also provides some stunning panoramic views.
In the cockpit there is an L shaped seating area with a large lazerette underneath. The cockpit is large enough for entertaining and has an optional fridge and grill to add to the enjoyment of alfresco dining. As with the F46 there are wide side decks and high pulpit rails for added safety.
There are two cabins, offering five berths as standard with the luxurious master cabin located forward. A bonded skylight above the bed provides extra light and a wonderful feeling of space. This cabin offers full length hanging storage as well as plenty of general storage capacity. The forward cabin has separate ensuite shower and toilet compartments. To provide additional space and privacy the F42 offers a second cabin amidships, that can be configured either as a triple, twin or double. The second cabin also offers an ensuite shower and separate toilet with a skylight. As with the master cabin there is full hanging space and plenty of storage. Bonded cabin windows provide extra light as well as waterside views. There will be the option to have additional storage in the mid cabin in lieu of the third berth.
The spacious interior is characterised by the hand crafted furniture used throughout which has been finished in washed walnut with solid walnut accents. The colour palette for the soft furnishings is earthy with fruit overtones. There will be even more storage on the new F42 than on the F42/5 with the new boat building on the strengths of its forerunner. All the benefits from the F42/5 have been incorporated and expanded upon with the new design – from storage to seating areas, to large entertaining spaces in the cockpit, saloon and on the flybridge.
The new hull is based on the proven design concept developed for the SC47 and F46 and will be priced at around £ 313,000 for the standard model excluding VAT when fitted with twin Volvo Penta IPS500 (740 BHP total 2 engines). The boat will also be available with twin Volvo Penta IPS600 (870 BHP total 2 engines).

Sealine content release.
Although launched back in 2007 the SC35 was the corner stone for the latest Sealine design direction. The design filled the saloon with natural light through the translucent convertible roof system with an unprecedented feeling of space for a boat of this size in both forward and aft cabins.
During the first year of production Sealine rode a wave of orders for the SC35 (Sports convertible 35) being a hit with customers who were attracted to the signature design innovation from Sealine.
Throughout the interior, the colour palette is warm and natural with walnut edging, washed walnut panelling and soft furnishings of ivory tones, silver blue and chocolate brown, whilst the secondary palette offers a fresh contrast with lime green, papaya orange and dark blueberry tones.
The large double forward cabin is reached by opening a set of double doors. This creates an open plan feel and gives an overall impression of space flowing through the boat
The hull, designed in collaboration with world powerboat champion designer Ocke Mannerfelt, has a deep v form with extended planning surfaces and bold topside contours – generated to provide comfortable and efficient costal cruising
She can be supplied with twin diesel engine options from Volvo or Mercruiser married to Twin prop stern drives giving her a respectable 30 knots plus top speed.
On a final note the SC35 has always been a popular choice with Sports Cruiser enthusiasts around the globe and what is even more attractive is you can find very good used examples of the very popular Sealine sports boat.
