Sealine is to launch their new C48 Coupe at the Southampton Boat Show. This ground breaking modern design is the ultimate solution to “turn-key” boating. There are no covers to undo or canopies to unfurl. The helm and saloon are fully enclosed by a signature wrap around screen with an electric sunroof providing full or partial access to the elements. Sliding patio doors link the cockpit to the saloon, creating the largest single social space for a boat of this size.
