2001 - Present


The Sealine F42/5 is 'one of the most innovative boats ever to hit the water'. Not our words, but those of Motorboating magazine when they put our groundbreaking flybridge cruiser through its paces. But is it a 42 footer or a 45 footer? Thanks to Sealine's patented extending cockpit system it's both. At the touch of a button the entire transom slides back, extending its length by a full three feet. The extra space is perfect for on-board entertaining, while the fluid nature of the boat is equally useful when it comes to berthing costs. Arriving in a marina in a 42ft craft and leaving in a 45 is guaranteed to leave most dockmasters suitably bemused!

Take one look at the F42/5 and it's clear that this boat has beauty as well as brains. The stunning extended flybridge is almost full beam in width and with seating for up to eight adults and an optional in-built fridge it's an excellent entertaining area in its own right. Move into the bright, spacious saloon and it's obvious that the F42/5 more than lives up to Sealine's reputation for creating beautiful yet practical interiors. With 2m (6' 6") headroom throughout, passengers can revel in the sense of space aboard the F42/5. Sealine's commitment to using the very finest materials is complemented by innovative features such as underfloor storage and an optional concealed double bed which extends from the seating in the saloon.

It's not only the exterior that is flexible with the F42/5. The forward master cabin is accompanied by a spacious midcabin which easily converts to either double or twin berth, while there is also the option of a three cabin layout. This features a high level galley allowing for a third portside cabin with two extra bunks. Together with the pull out bed option in the saloon this arrangement increases the accommodation to eight berths.

Just as well really. The Sealine F42/5 is such a special motor yacht that the list of friends wanting to come aboard will undoubtedly expand almost as quickly as the cockpit does.
