Boatadvice.com.au got a group of friends together to test the new S330. A 33 foot sports cruiser built in Germany and designed by world renowned Bill Dixon who also designs the Hanse and Mody yachts so it’s little surprise that the design of this impressive cruiser borrows some design elements from these boats. The squared up bow increases space onboard and creates more usable space onboard without sacrificing performance which sees the Sealine S330 cruising at 22 knots. It’s a very capable package inshore and offshore with twin Volvo engines providing performance and maneuverability. Onboard the boat is immensely usable with a large rear deck space that is both light and open while below decks overnighters are well accommodated with two berths, a kitchenette, lounge and dining area and bathroom. Internally it’s finished with classy wood grain timbers and stainless finishings. We spent the day relaxing on Pittwater with five onboard and space was never an issue. The rear lounge can be easily transformed into a sun pad while the centred teak table provides space for food and drinks. To the starboard side of the boat is a sink and icebox set up with an external fridge complimenting the one located downstairs in the kitchenette. Up front the owner has elected to fit a remote anchor windlass which provides safe and easy anchoring. Access to the bow is simple along either side of the boat. Once up the front a large cushioned sun pad takes up much of the space in the centre of the boat. Boatadvice.com.au suggest this boat would be best suited for couples with children and entertainers who like to have something out of the ordinary. The European styling is perfectly suited to the Australian climates and the dual sun roof set up adds the necessary protection when the heat is on.
