UK-based builder Sealine has new owners, a new CEO and an exciting new line of boats. We had the luck of testing a couple of the new models and fell head over heels for this 42-footer, an absolute gem for fun in the sun. Docked for a few days at the Marriott Marina in Fort Lauderdale earlier this year, the boat became party central and it is no wonder. It is open, inviting and is able to cater to just about any activity thanks to many moving parts, including the salon’s sofas, tables and the hydraulic rooftop. Equipped with IPS, it is maneuverable and fun to drive. Other options include stern drives. Sealine is hedging its bets on the US market, and between Newport, Fort Lauderdale and Miami, will show several of its new boats. Also in Fort Lauderdale will be the Sealine C48, an attractive cruiser ideal for cooler climes.
