Sealine sold to US private equity company for an undisclosed sum September 6th 2011
Brunswick pull out out of Sealine.
Sealine have been sold for an undisclosed sum to a US private equity company.
The Kidderminster-based boatbuilder was bought last night by the Oxford Investment Group after weeks of secret negotiations with parent company Brunswick.
The new owners are a group of California-based private investors, who specialise in buying up manufacturing companies in the US, Europe and China with a view to "adding long term value for shareholders, management and employees".
As part of the deal they have also bought the rights to the Guernsey range of lobster boats, launched by Brunswick in 2008, which they plan to build alongside the existing range of Sealine boats in Kidderminster.
No details of the financial transactions have been released but MBY was told that the deal leaves Sealine debt free and in a strong position to focus on developing its own range of 35-60ft sportscruisers and flybridge motoryachts. The employees were informed of the deal this morning.
The announcement comes just days before the company is due to launch its new SC42 and C48 models at the Cannes and Southampton boat shows.
Sealine's current managing director Chris O'Connor will stay with Brunswick, while the Oxford Investment Group have installed James Bursey in his place.
Canadian-born Bursey is a veteran of the marine industry having previously headed up Neptunus Yachts in Ontario.
Selwyn Isakow, chairman of the Oxford Investment Group, commented: "We have been looking to enter the leisure marine sector for some years and it was important for us to find the right business. Sealine has produced some world beating boats in the last five years and their success, with a rejuvenated brand in a difficult market, is a fantastic story."
Selwyn together with fellow investor Conrad Prebys (a successful property devsloper from San Diego), plan to expand Sealine's international presence and will be looking to add other marine brands to their portfolio.
Sealine have been loss-making over the last few years due to the worldwide drop in demand for luxury boats as well as ongoing investment in new models and manufacturing facilities.
40 years of Sealine - The SC35 40th Anniversary Edition
Tom Murrant, an avid boating enthusiast, formed Sealine in 1972 with a distinct belief that he could design and manufacture boats that were better than those readily available on the market. Having continued to build the company on this promise, this year they celebrate their 40th Anniversary of boat building.
These days Sealine and luxury boating are often heard in the same sentence and the brand has become synonymous with quality and reliability. Their flagship cruiser, the T60, is renowned for being some of the finest boat design and manufacturing ever seen in Britain.
With the SC35 they progressed into unknown waters – the design was like nothing seen before. It was almost as if they had created space out of thin air, and this spaciousness left it feeling like a considerably larger boat.
So what better way to celebrate 40 years of Sealine quality than to re-issue one of its market leading models? It heralds a few moderate twists on its original design successes, such as the striking white roof, a stone hull exterior and diamante taupe and ivory leather interiors. These minimal stylish modifications are instantly recognisable as a statement of Sealine’s intent. They are celebrating being at the forefront of the market over 4 decades.
The bad news?
You had better be quick if you want to get your hands on one... there are only 20 made.
