History and Construction:
The Sealine F43 represents the definitive aft cabin, performance flybridge motor yacht for her size. The F43 is without a doubt one of the most popular that Sealine ever built. Everywhere on board is a clearly defined area that allows your family and guests a companionable and comfortable experience. There is a deep safe aft cockpit with all round seating and clever storage options. The full cockpit enclosure is removable and stores in bespoke lockers in the roof sections. The cockpit table and legs have a similar storage solution. Access to the upper helm is safe and secure thanks to the teak laid moulded steps. Once on the flybridge you will be delighted by the aft sunbathing area, the L-shaped seating/lounger and the central double helm seat. The visibility from the commanding helm position is superb and allows the helmsman excellent control.
This Sealine F43 has been owned by the current owner since mid-October 2022 and is being sold due to a change in his life plan.
This Sealine F43 is powered by two very well maintained Volvo TAMD63P diesel engines. These 370hp, 6-cylinder units are immaculate and housed in an engine bay that is of a similar condition. The engines have completed approx. 600 hours and will happily cruise at 20 knots. At this speed she will burn approximately 65 litres per hour. Maximum speed with a clean hull is between 28-30 knots.
The reduction gearboxes drive stainless steel shafts with 4-bladed bronze propellers. Each shaft is fitted with a Stripper triple blade rope cutter which operate using a scissor action. These will make short work of any rope and avoid expensive lift outs.
Twin lever morse controls fitted with "Extra Flex" throttle cables. These make throttle use very smooth and extremely responsive. . The engines are mid-mounted for stability which with the conventional shaft drive gives easy and predictable slow speed handling. The engine bay can be accessed via a small garage hatch in the saloon. The engine space is illuminated and the engine seacocks and fuel/water separators are easily accessible from here. For more thorough and extensive maintenance, the saloon floor is divided into removable panels.
This Sealine F43 has four domestic Batteries, two engine start batteries, windlass battery, bow thruster battery and a genset starter battery. A Dolphin 380 4KVA generator is fitted which is linked to the Victron Battery management system. It has a 240V shore power system, inverter and immersion heater.
