Bold and innovative describe Sealine’s new SC42. This express cruiser utilizes the same mold as its larger sistership, the C48. There are obvious advantages to using one mold for two different vessels. And they don’t all fall on the side of efficiency for the manufacturer. On the plus side for the SC42 is the extra room you get because it has the wider beam of the C48. Sealine makes maximum use of this with its full-beam cockpit design. This arrangement transforms at the touch of a button from a daytime lounging area with a sun bed for casual enjoyment to a formal setting for evening dining on a plush settee served by a table.
Another advantage of the wider beam is the walk-around side-deck access, which makes line handling, docking and anchoring safer and easier. Many manufacturers will forgo the side-deck access in favor of more interior volume, but not Sealine. When you do your testing in the lively waters of England’s Solent, as Sealine does, you go into the design process with a salty philosophy that prioritizes safety over cabin amenities.
