by Thorben Will on 14 Dec 2013
Sealine will be revealing their new F380 flybridge motor yacht at the Dusseldorf Boat Show in January. Following on from the success of the award winning F450, this new model offers more space than any other cruiser in this size range currently on the market. With their innovative design features Sealine has maximised the use of space and light throughout whilst also providing complete flexible living areas above and below decks.

The signature wrap around windscreen offers 360 degree panoramic views from the saloon and there are double seats at both the lower and upper helm for social cruising. A port side sofa provides versatile seating and storage, movable for maximising the floor space available. To the starboard there is a dining table for six which converts to create an occasional double berth. The well-equipped mid-level galley connects to the saloon to provide a social environment and has plenty of light from the large opening port light. There is also a seamless connection from the saloon, via sliding patio door, to the wide cockpit.
There are two cabins with the forward master cabin having its own en-suite with a separate shower area. Skylights add another dimension to this luxuriously appointed cabin. The two berth mid cabin easily converts into a double berth, offering maximum flexibility for family and friends with plenty of light from the oversized portlight. The day head with shower completes this spacious accommodation area. Both cabins are packed with clever storage solutions.
The versatile flybridge offers a number of different seating and sunbathing arrangements. The double helm seat has a movable backrest to allow aft facing seating when dining and socialising. There is also a fold up backrest to starboard to allow for a further forward facing seat. Aft there is seating for 6-8 guests around the table which can be replaced for sunbathing.
The cockpit is equally versatile with an optional seating module for social seating in the cockpit or aft face seating on the swimming platform.
The proven hull design offers excellent sea keeping and handling characteristics. Power is provided by a choice of sterndrive diesel engines from Volvo Penta, with and without joy stick control.
Large fuel and water tanks, generous storage in the lazerette and a large storage bin under the saloon help to make this an ideal cruising boat. The F380 is a perfect entry level flybridge offering space, light and versatility.
