So does the Sealine SC42 deliver?
First, the easy bit: the space and specification of the deck level would impress a 60ft owner, so we’re guessing our 35ft brethren will be happy. By comparison, the two ensuite interior is merely excellent. Which just leaves a price that threatens to fall into half-a-million pound territory. Thankfully, the cheaper sterndrive boat would seem to be the one to own. So it’s a resounding yes. The SC42 is the most versatile and just plain enjoyable cruiser out there. In other words, it is just about good enough for a 35ft sportscruiser owner.
