There were many Sealine fans who were concerned for the brand's future when it got into difficulty (see A Fine Line: Fairline and Sealine), but it seems that Sealine's new owners are breathing new life into the brand. Alex Smith reports from the Dusseldorf Boat Show on the Sealine 38, the first new Sealine model to appear since the company was swallowed up by the German boat builder Hanse.

The Sealine F38 is the largest flybridge of any boat in its class, and it was an impressive sight at the Dusseldorf Boat Show. Alex went on board the new craft to find out more. You can see the key points of the boat in his short "first impressions" video below.
