Sleeping 4 in her large aft cabin & saloon she also has a separate galley and separate heads as well as having the added advantage of a Volvo AQAD 41P 200 hp diesel engine which was fully serviced in 2018, making her fast & economical. Uptop, her cockpit provides plenty of seating & she has recently had all new covers & a new Raymarine Dragonfly 7” Plotter / Fishfinder. This Sealine 255 Senator would make an ideal starter cruiser for a couple or family that want to get into boating as she is a very capable and seaworthy boat whilst being spacious throughout. She also comes with Radar & VHF so really is a ready to go package that needs to be seen to be appreciated. She is currently lying Isle of Wight and is available for viewings through Aspire Boat Sales.

Brokers Comments

This great little weekend cruiser comes fully equipped & ready to go & is presented in very good condition for her age. She had a number of upgrades by her current Owner in 2018 including a full engine service, LED Nav lights, new cabin flooring & new galvanic isolator. She provides a huge amount of space for the family to relax and enjoy being afloat, whilst still being easy to handle, even for novice boaters. She has been well maintained and updated, having recently had complete new covers & a brilliant Raymarine Dragonfly 7 plotter & fish finder fitted. With comfortable seating for at least 7 in the cockpit she is ideal for days out with friends & with sleeping accommodation for 4, she is also perfect for family weekends away. The massive bonus with this Sealine 255 is her Volvo AQAD 41P Diesel Engine giving a smooth powerful performance whilst being economical to run. Whether you are new to motor boating or an experienced skipper, this boat has everything you might want and offers exceptional value for money with great space for socialising & weekend cruising.

Inspection of this boat is highly recommended. She is currently lying Isle of Wight, and is available for viewings through Aspire Boat Sales.
