Now, there's a whole bunch that goes into a machine of this nature. That said, if I were to try and run through everything this puppy has to offer, we'd be here for a few hours. So, to make sure you can spend time with the family while also giving you a taste of the Sealion, I'll run through some of the more adventurous essentials we can look forward to.
Let me start off by pointing out that this ship was actually built back in 2009, but I wouldn't be inviting you aboard some old ship; no. Instead, to ensure that this idea is never impregnated into your head, let me point out that this beauty has seen a multi-million-dollar refit just this year. Actually, refit doesn't really do everything justice; it's a "rebuild!"
Overall, Sealion is massive. Not only is it 62 m (203 ft) long, but it also presents an 11 m (36 ft) beam. In short, there's more space in the Sealion than in a Florida condo. A draft of 3.2 m (10.5 ft) also ensures you and your guests creep their way into some of those neat lagoons with crystal-clear waters.
However, as big as this ship is, only six cabins are found aboard. This means that 12 guests will be able to find beds in which to rest their heads. Beyond that, it's the teak patios or couches for any stowaways. Heck, the plush carpeting seems as good an idea as any.
Why so little sleeping space in the Sealion? Well, the rest of the superyacht is reserved for those lounges we see in the gallery, impressive outdoor area and lounges, and, best of all, for toys of every kind you can imagine. Heck, even the crew of 16 members pampering 12 guests is an experience for sure.
One aspect of the interior design that I found rather neat is the way spaces seem to disappear into one another, offering the feeling that everything blends into one massive space. This effect seems to be carried out with high-gloss surfaces, glass, semiprecious metals, and, if I'm not mistaken, even some plastics, pardon me, "composite" materials. Once polished granite and marble are added, you'll feel like you're living it up in some palace.
Then, there are all the exterior living areas we need to cover. If there's one thing the Sealion doesn't lack, it's outdoor living. Heck, the massive sun deck pampers guests with large sunbeds, lounge seating, alfresco dining, and a jacuzzi. Talk about luxury and comfort.
In all, three tenders fit in the Sealion, two SeaDoos, four Sea Bobs, one e-foil, wakeboards, jet skis, inflatable kayaks and SUPS, and inflatable slides hanging off the edge of the ship. If you're into fishing or snorkeling, there's gear for that, too. Honestly, the only thing missing is a personal submarine.
All that, an impeccable and fresh interior, and a massive and inviting exterior are the reasons why Sealion has been awarded multiple times over the course of its lifetime. It holds the title of "Winner of the World Superyacht" in 2010, "International Yacht" in 2011, and "SBID Design Awards" in 2011. What more could you want?
I know what you could want, to take a trip aboard the Sealion; I know I would. All you have to do now is get ahold of your favorite broker and go from there. Just be ready for a vacation unlike any you may have experienced thus far.
