The Sealine S330 will make a last minute worldwide debut at the show

Motor Boat & Yachting can exclusively reveal the first renderings of the Sealine S330, which will make its worldwide debut at the PSP Southampton Boat Show.

The S330 is first Sealine designed by the in house team at Hanse Yachts alongside British designer Bill Dixon.

The looks fall in to line with the modern Sealine style but the upright bow is a first for the brand, even if it is more of an aesthetic device than anyting to do with dynamics.

The boat comes as standard with a single sterndrive 330hp Volvo Penta D6 but twin D3 installations are available at 170hp and 220hp respectively. Top speed with the single engine is a claimed 28 knots and the twin 220hp variant will hit 34 knots flat out.

Below decks there are two cabins, a separate double amidships and a wide twin with an infill cushion forward. The forward cabin can be left either open to the saloon or sectioned off with a door to increase privacy. Both cabins share one bathroom.

Sealine promises class best headroom throughout the interior with height in the saloon and forward cabin ranging from 6ft 1in (1.87m) to 6ft 4in (1.95m).

Plenty of natural light from the glazing either side of the saloon and single midships hull window on the port side should help to bolster the feeling of space inside.

Sealine says the cockpit will seat nine people and the folding canvas roof is split fore and aft so you can cover/uncover the two ends of the area separately.

Prices start from €144,950 ex VAT (approx. £115,181 ex VAT) with the single D6 and €154,950 ex VAT (approx. £123,127 ex VAT) for the smallest twin 170hp D3s.

This is the type of boat that people have been crying out for Sealine to build and, alongside the UK launch of the F380, should make the stand well worth a visit at the show.

Sealine’s range will be on berths M166-169.
