SEALINE TO LAUNCH NEW C48 AT THE SOUTHAMPTON BOAT SHOW
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. A modern IPS drive system
offers exceptional fuel efficiency and manoeuvrability, as well as enabling a full beam, full height
master cabin. The C48 is a true cruising boat that allows you to escape and explore in style.
“We are delighted to be launching the C48 alongside our new SC42, the second new model for 2011
and an important part of our investment strategy of creating eight new boats in three years.
Continuing Sealine’s unique approach to luxury, modern design, this new coupe has many innovative
features. With its temperature controlled environment the C48 is ideally suited to a number of boating
regions including the Mediterranean, Asia, the Middle East, North America and Scandinavia”
commented Chris O’Connor, Sealine’s Managing Director.
The Saloon has a large L shaped seating area plus three stools, to allow six to relax and dine in
comfort. There is a removable table which can be transferred to the aft cockpit, along with the stools,
to provide alfresco dining for six. An integrated wet bar, grill and barbecue, plus a sink with hot and
cold water, are provided for easy outdoor entertaining.
The raised helm has four individual sports seats. There is a folding chart table and plenty of storage.
The large wrap around windscreen provides stunning panoramic views. On the port side there is fully
fitted open plan galley complete with fridge, integrated oven and hob and enough space for a washing
machine and large refrigeration unit.
The light and airy forward cabin is extremely spacious with a double bed and TV unit located
opposite. There are separate ensuite shower and toilet compartments plus plenty of stowage. Due to
the position of the forward bulk head, the midship master cabin has full headroom across the width of
the cabin with a comfortable walk around area and panoramic hull windows.Two full length wardrobes
offer generous space and there is an en-suite with a separate shower cubicle. The third cabin has two
bunks and lots of storage. The interiors have been finished using a natural light oak There is also an
optional hi-lo platform system capable of deploying a large tender system. Generous storage includes
a large lazarette which can be converted into a crew cabin if required. An optional electrically
operated passerelle provides easy access to and from the boat.
The hull is based on the proven SC47’s hull design and is fitted with Volvo’s IPS 600 pod drives with
joy stick control. When compared to traditional shaft drive models of this size, the C48 can offer fuel
savings of between 25- 35%.The C48 will be priced from £392k excluding VAT.
