2005 - 2008


When our designer said he wanted to create a boat that didn't actually float on water our reaction was probably similar to yours. But when that designer happens to be Ocke Mannerfelt, a man who has created hulls capable of winning World Offshore Powerboating titles, you tend to let him get on with it. The result is the ground-breaking S29 Sports Cruiser. Incorporating channels that draw air under the hull, the S29 actually rides on a cushion of air. Helping it set new standards in performance, comfort and safety.

If the S29's looks and abilty are impressive then its everyday functionality is astonisting. A remarkable sense of space is achieved by clever design and copious amounts of natural light. Headroom is unusually generous for a boat of this size while the beautifully designed galley offers an impressive array of storage, workspace and cooking facilities with further storage space cleverly concealed behind the hinged headrests in the master cabin. The S29's exterior is no less innovative with a deeper bathing platform allowing better access as well as a place to shower after a dip. Protection from the weather is afforded by a full height canopy that stows quickly and easily in the radar arch when no longer required. Socialising in the cockpit couldn't be easier with the L or U shaped seating area seating four comfortably, and six when the helm seat back rest is flipped over. After all, when a boat handles well, you'll want to make sure as many people as possible can enjoy it with you.

At Sealine we believe that a Sports Cruiser should be about more than just inspiring performance. The S29 bears witness to this. And it would appear that others agree. Motor Boats Monthly went as far as to say that 'in all the key areas that matter, such as the cockpit, berths, WC and galley, this is about as good as it gets in an affordable 30ft sportscruiser'. And who are we to argue?
