Project: Sealine F46

A builder of extremes or not? This is the general thinking for Sealine, the British builder who in the nineties was the most adapter of all round bubble shaped designs, continuing with this strategy up to a few years back. Come 2 years ago and Sealine showed a minimal model with the SC35, and now it presents the F46 project first of the flybridge series to integrate this new modern design approach. The first rendering pictures, show a very extreme minimal look. Inside the novelty continues with a light filled two big cabin interior, mid ship full beam owners, and VIP to fore. Interesting is the galley and dining area setting below which is a light filled environment taking this from the lower helm windows. Upper saloon also welcomes you with 2 l-shaped settees, and the patio door is pivot opening, making here a single area with the aft cockpit. Flybridge setting is a central helm station, c-shaped sun lounger area forward to this, and a c-shaped settee on the aft part. Propulsion is pod drive with power options so far not being announced, but I do imagine similar options to the SC47 with Cummins Zeus of 425hp and 480hp and Volvo IPS600. Being a Brunswick company I would go blind folded for a Zeus Cummins aft looking pods setting as I am sure its hull will be mostly tested with this.
