SEALINE MOTOR YACHTS – a family cruiser that appeals on multiple levels

SEALINE MOTOR YACHTS – a family cruiser that appeals on multiple levels

Once designed and built in the UK but now part of the Hanse Group and manufactured in Germany, Sealine Motor Yachts combine flair with comfortable, spacious deck plans and light-filled interiors.

There are 12 highly versatile models from 10 to 17 metres in the current range from four lines: Cruiser series, Flybridge series, Outboard v series and Sport series. The array of choices means there’s sure to be a Sealine that matches your personal boating needs, tastes and preferences.

Windcraft Yachts, the sole importer of Sealine in Australia brought in the first of the new C335 models late last year and the well-crafted sporty family cruiser made an immediate impression with its stylish contemporary looks and innovative design features.

For a boat just over 10 metres or 33 feet, the Sealine C335 superbly maximises available space with two double cabins and a well-appointed bathroom with shower and premium quality fittings. Both cabins are a generous size and would provide perfectly agreeable accommodation for a family of four on longer cruises.

The main deck boasts twin sunroofs, while a side door and bi-folding aft doors create a chic, al fresco single-level living, dining and entertaining area that extends out to a large swim platform.

Smart design touches abound in the C335; the forward end of the dinette in the saloon can cantilever to create a forward navigator’s bench alongside the single helm seat. Out on the water the Sealine C335 offers stirring 30-knot plus performance, powered by a Volvo Penta single or twin sterndrive engines delivering up to 440hp. The Sealine C335v can be optioned with twin 300hp outboard engines that nudge speed up to 40 knots. The space saved from installing outboards can be configured into a large locker for watersports or storage.

Like all Sealine hulls, the C335’s deep-vee hull and plumb bow cuts through the waves and delivers an exceptionally stable ride.

The C335’s draft of 1.03m also means it’s easy to pull-up to an anchorage and enjoy your own private beach club with amenities such as fold-out bar between the galley with its hopper window, and the cockpit. Relax and recline on either the bow sun lounge or the cockpit sun lounge that converts from a table.

Options such as joystick control to “park like a pro” with Volvo cruise control, and an extended swim platform on the first Australian-ordered C335 complement its easy handling characteristics.

Slotting in between C335 and C430, the mid-range Sealine C390 is designed to combine the fun and dynamics of the former with the space and comfort of the latter.

At just over 41 feet or 12 metres the C390 can be fitted with sterndrives mated to either Volvo D4 300s or D6 370s delivering an engaging helm experience with a top speed just shy of 35 knots. Accommodations are either three or two cabins. The two-cabin version can be configured as twin single berths or a large double berth layout in addition to the spacious island berth in the master in the bow. A sophisticated hull lamination process yields a high-strength hull with a reduced weight. The design, as with all Sealine models, comes courtesy of Bill Dixon, a renowned marine architect based in Southampton, UK. His company, Dixon Yacht Design, opened some 27 years ago, and has grown over the years to become one of the world’s leading yacht design studios.

Sealine’s S-Line offers yet another set of exciting options for any buyer. The S390 has a signature swooping hardtop that features a large opening sunroof, along with full-height saloon windows, and a large opening door. Its impressive versatility though means it’s easily capable of operating in a variety of fast-changing weather conditions. For Australia’s outdoor boating lifestyle a cockpit galley, barbecue and table plus hydraulic swim platform make it the ideal weekend cruiser. The S390 has two engine options, both twin Volvo Penta D-series sterndrives. With the upgraded 370 hp version, the boat has a top end of 34 knots.

The S390, like all new Sealines, features the latest smart monitoring technology that enables you to keep track of your boat and its systems via an app connected to the Sealine Safety Cloud. It advises if shore power turns off, monitors battery status, and allows equipment to be turned on or off remotely, sends alerts if your yacht moves from its location, tracks where it is and has been, and notifies you of any service and maintenance requirements.

Pricing starts at $650,000 for the C335, and $975,000 for the C390. For more details contact
