The Sealine C330 is a two-cabin design that allows owners to choose equipment, materials and colors to create a personalized boat.

Standard power is a 330-horsepower Volvo Penta D6 Duoprop sterndrive engine that produces a cruising speed of 25 knots and a top speed of 26 knots. For a little more oomph, options include a single 400-horsepower Volvo Penta D6 Duoprop sterndrive generating a cruising speed of 30 knots and a top end of 31 knots; a pair of 170-horsepower Volvo Penta D3 Duoprop sterndrives driving a cruising speed of 26 knots and a top hop of 27 knots; and a pair of 220-horsepower Volvo Penta D3 Duoprop sterndrives that push the hull to a cruise of 30 knots and top out at 31 knots.

Bill Dixon penned the Sealine 330’s design, attempting to use every inch of onboard space to create the feeling of a larger boat. Oversized hull windows and large hatches allow for extra light and fresh air, and everything from headroom to berth size has been pushed to its limits, according to the builder. A sliding roof opens electrically to create a fully indoor-outdoor space.

On board are a galley, a seating area and a helm station. A glass door separates the salon and cockpit and can be opened to create an uninterrupted gathering space. A refrigerator can be added in the cockpit, and a sun lounge that converts to a dinette can be ordered atop the cabin superstructure forward of the coachroof.

Base price is a little more than $200,000 (€164,950). Learn more at www.sealine.com.
