Needless to deny it, the Sealine C430 is a “pleasure” yacht, but not in a derogatory sense. It is pleasing because it manages to emphasize and concentrate all the latest elements of owner-owner appeal of a coupe in 13 meters. Elegant and functional, it is a boat with attractive lines: the large volumes that the superstructure must now have to ensure habitability are well harmonized and lightened by the interplay of solids and voids between the composite and glass parts. Its 26 square meters of transparent surfaces, claimed to be at the top of its class, in addition to working for the look, bring undoubted benefits of very well-lit interiors and reduced caesura between inside and outside. With the electric sunroof thrown wide open and the side and rear windows totally open, the Sealine C430’s salon and dashboard also move closer to the primitive open concept, at least in terms of the feeling they give of immersion in the marine environment.
In contrast, excess nature can always be countered, not only by shutting everything down, but also by using less drastic systems: such as the awning, which, again electrically operated, is deployed over the cockpit by taking advantage of the two arms that extend the aft part of the powerboat aftward. For the interior layout then the same logic of giving what the owner expects applies. The kitchen close to the cockpit really likes it (and works even better). The sleeping area has several variables: two cabins with the master in the middle of the boat or three cabins with the master in the bow with the third being double or twin. Natural slate, leather and carpet soo standard in the furnishings. Propulsion is by a pair of Volvo engines with IPS transmission with powers ranging from 400, standard, to 600 horsepower.
