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