Sealine   Motor yacht history

Founders of SEALINE motorboat company

3 friends and £500Frank Fish, Tom Murrant, Ray Walker

In 1972, the aircraft engineer Tom Murrant was looking for a family boat. He knew exactly what he wanted – but he couldn’t find it anywhere on the market. Murrant responded how only visionary mavericks would: he built his dream boat himself.


At an airfield near Bobbington; Tom Murrant along with two friends completed his 23-foot cabin cruiser. It soon became clear that what they had created had got what it takes to become a commercial hit. Murrant withdrew £500 from his life insurance and founded Fibrasonic marine ltd.

As early as in 1978, Fibrasonic needed bigger halls and moved to Kidderminster. In just 6 weeks, the first C-LINE weekender was developed there.

The C-LINE boats had soon made a name for themselves; even visually. The 22-foot cabin cruiser has a striking stripe of color. A novelty: the owner chooses from blue, yellow and orange.

Longer. Finer. Quicker.C-LINE becomes SEALINE

Spurred on by his success, Tom Murrant focused on a new goal: building internationally renowned fine yachts. His models are longer, more luxurious motor yachts that cover all building types. The new variety is expressed in a new name: from C-LINE (what stood for cruiser and cabin) to SEALINE.

Under new ownership, SEALINE advanced their motor yacht line up to the 60 feet class. The T60 Aura motor yacht is the longest ever SEALINE built to date.

40 years after the company was founded, Hanseyachts bought the SEALINE brand, including all models. While four yachts continued to be produced at the shipyard in Greifswald Germany; the development of a state-of-the-art generation of models began under new head designer Bill Dixon.
