Sealine SC35

The Sealine SC35 is known for being the winner of Motor Boat Monthly, Motor Boat and Yachting 2008 “Motor boat of the Year competition.” The SC35 has a very modern design both above deck and below. It’s both light and spacious giving a very generous amount of room for up to 8 guests on deck with a small outside galley for any small parties that could occur both on sea or docked at the shore. Above this area is a large convertible roof in the colour brown giving the boat an advantage in both hot sunny weather and cold rainy conditions.

Below the deck the accommodation is very generous too. The saloon includes everything that any owner or guest would want whilst sailing. There is a drinks cabinet and provision for TV, both electrical overhead lighting and portholes dotted around to allow natural light into the saloon. There are overhead lockers for any light valuables that want to be kept away, a table that is stuck to the floor to ensure safety whilst enjoying a meal even in rough conditions and even more storage underneath the saloon floor for any items that are too heavy for the overhead storage space.

Within the galley is perfect storage for all your cutlery and eating apparatus, an 80 litre fridge, overhead lighting, a gas oven and stove with two burners, a sink with mix taps and draining board. The on board galley has everything a kitchen at home would have but built perfectly for those on board conditions.

There are two cabins below deck with a very generous living area both with large double berths, portholes, overhead lighting and enough storage for all valuables and clothing that will be needed on the journey. The forward cabin has its very own en suite including a shower with technology such as a shower drain system, shaver sockets and manual sea water toilet system.

Mini Transat

The Mini Transat is an original boat built in 1999 and designed by Mark Mills. This exact boat has competed in many classe mini competitions as well as the royal southern double handed series. She also came first in the mini classe 2005 UK series. It is built using a carbon fibre foam sandwich for the hull, a canting fin and bulb keel, asymmetric daggerboards and finally twin rudders.

This Mini Transat is the perfect boat to start racing and competing in high speed races and the boat’s price is very attractive for a new comer. This tiny yacht has such an amazing build it can travel across waters with speeds of up to 22 knots allowing it to cross the English Channel in less than 5 hours.

Small yachts like this don’t actually have a great amount of living and sleeping area’s as they are designed purely for racing but this Mini Transat is one of the only yachts of its type to have a pipe cot and chart table, giving it an edge on luxury compared to other similar boats.

As this boat has been designed to compete in races the navigational aid is a great help to the boat. With Raymarine autopilot, wind speed/direction and speed/depth readers the pilot will know exactly what they are up against when away from home. It also has GPS system and compass to help with directions when miles away from anywhere.

To make sure this boat moves with speed there are 2 Water ballast tanks in aft sections which give the boat a boost when there is a lack of wind around and when windy conditions occur there are six sails that complete the job perfectly. These are the main sail, a fractional spinnaker, a mast head spinnaker, a jib, a code zero, a tri sail and finally a storm jib, allowing progression through all different conditions. All of these are supported by an Aluminum mast, a 3.5m carbon bow sprit and carbon boom.

Below the deck of the Sun Odyssey 33i is a very large living area featuring both living accommodation, sleeping areas and of course the food preparing area. The saloon offers two large settees running down either side of the boat, outboard there is a large set of corresponding lockers that run down the hull side giving the boat that extra bit of storage. There is one large wall separating the sleeping quarters from the living area, giving privacy when needed. But even with this door closed there is still a very large area covered in seating for friends and family to enjoy a meal whilst sailing across the water. As well as these there is a beautifully designed WC with a hot shower.

The whole interior is crafted with a Satin Teak finish and with the large amount of natural light that flows through the windows; the owner will be surrounded by a beautiful sight every time eyes are set on this boat.
