Bought in 2013 by the German group HanseYachts (Hanse, Dehler, Fjord, Privilège, Moody...), the Sealine brand, formerly British, is reviving since its move to the Baltic coast.
Created in 1972 by an aeronautical engineer, Tom Murrant (who at the time couldn't find a yacht to suit him, he decided to build his own, before launching his own brand...), Sealine has in fact almost doubled its turnover since its passage under the German flag!
Positioned in the market for flybridge motorboats (Prestige, Greenline) and Express Cruisers (Jeanneau Leader, Bénéteau Gran Turismo, Bavaria), Sealine has 11 models in its catalog, ranging from 33 to 53 feet, characterized by an elegant design, good seaworthiness and a high level of quality construction.
The Sealine are built between Poland, for composite and hulls, and Greifswald, eastern Germany, on the Baltic Sea, for assembly, in a site quite remarkable for its industrial organization.
With the Sealine C335, the German shipyard offers the second model to access its range of express cruisers (between the C330 and C390), which enters the market of 33-foot units, strategic in Europe but also worldwide.
Its two declinations, inboard (up to 440hp) for a top speed of 31 knots, and outboard (2x300hp for a top speed of 40 knots), should enable it to rake wide, the segment of the inboard, hardly, being more and more competed by double outboard engines on this size of boats.
To make a place for themselves in the sun, the Sealine C335 and C335V count on their attractive design, in particular their dynamic and elegant profile, their modern and functional layout, but also their very good quality of construction.
This family model offers a beautiful aft cockpit, protected by a cap integrating a soft sunroof, from which you can access a huge bathing platform: a must on the market!
The foredeck welcomes a double sun deck, recessed/raised, very practical at anchor.
The saloon is accessible from the cockpit through a large sliding glass window, and from the starboard side passageway through a side door, ideal for sailing breezes and for port manoeuvres.
We will appreciate the return of the galley work surface, which acts as a bar with the cockpit, and the great interior luminosity, due to the XXL side windows.
Generous for the family in spite of its reduced size, the Sealine C335 has 2 double cabins (including a central cabin which has the merit to exist), and a beautiful bathroom. The convertible saloon in the lounge can accommodate 2 more people for a short stay.
On the occasion of the announcement of the launch of the Sealine C335 and Sealine C335V, Andrea Zambonini their product manager declared on Yachting Art: "With the C335 and C335v, our ambition is to propose two declinations of a 33-foot model, offering the functionalities of a 36-footer. The very large hull windows are unique on the market, offering a luminosity never proposed on such a boat size".
It should be noted that boaters can configure their future Sealine C335 and C335V online, on the brand's website, following the example of what exists in the automotive world.
