Sealine opens sales office in Fort Lauderdale


British boatbuilder Sealine International opened a new U.S. sales office in Fort Lauderdale that is the headquarters for Sealine Yachts America LLC.

Sealine is returning to the United States with new models tailored for the American market. They include the new SC42i Sports Cruiser and C48 Coupe, and the T50 Flybridge Motor Yacht. The boats will be available for customers and dealers to view, starting at the end of this month.

The F48 Flybridge Motor Yacht will be launched in the fall in time for the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Sealine will exhibit at the Bay Harbor (Mich.) In-Water Boat Show, which starts today and runs through Sunday at Bay Harbor Lake Marina. Jason Hudson, the builder’s director of new business development, will attend with Sealine’s new SC42i Sports Coupe with IPS pod drives.

“We are delighted to be returning to the U.S. market with such a strong range of new models,” Sealine Yachts America president Bill Griffiths said in a statement. “We have carefully specified each model to include U.S. electrical systems, large-capacity refrigeration and the latest navigation and AV equipment.”

The new office is located at 850 N.E Third Street, Harbour Towne Marina, Dania, FL 33004.
