A flybridge is a type of motor boat with an upper helm station. These models generally measure upwards of 30ft long and are particularly popular in warmer climates, such as the Mediterranean.

Also known as a flying bridge in the USA, these models benefit from all-round visibility when berthing. Variants on the market include the sportsbridge, open and hardtop flybridge.

The design predates World War Two and often involves a more basic level of instrumentation on the upper helm than you would find on the lower helm.

The Sealine F48 is classy, customisable and a real contender for the flybridge crown


A victim of its own success perhaps, but the ubiquity of the F33 combined with current market forces mean that these boats are now seriously good value.
