Fairline Yachts. Conqueror of the seas
Luxurious, thoughtful yacht with British character, Italian design and Dutch confidence. This is how you can characterize the ships of the famous British brand Fairline, which has more than half a century of success.
Unlike many yachts, Fairline is not just an expensive toy. This is a reliable, seaworthy vessel, which her owner will fully enjoy at sea, and not idle on the pier. Fairline is easy to drive and gives her owner an unforgettable feeling of conquering the sea, allowing you to make not only short walks, but also long cruises. It is not for nothing that the owners prefer to manage Fairline yachts, sometimes even without resorting to the services of a professional captain. This yacht perfectly combines the highest level of comfort and speed: all models of the British brand planning.
Fairline was founded by Jack Newington in 1963, when he founded the Oundle Marina, which later became the famous brand's shipyard. The first yacht was launched in 1967. It was a 6-meter cabin boat Fairline 19 with a fiberglass hull, the most innovative structural material at the time.
1985 marked the launch of the first yacht in the Targa series, the Targa 33, which became the yachting standard for today's sport cruisers. In 1992, the Squadron 62 flybridge model enters the market. It gives rise to a new series of the same name, which quickly becomes a Fairline classic, and the brand itself confidently breaks into the top five world leaders. Each subsequent year is more and more new yachts. 2003 - The 10,000th Fairline Squadron 62 leaves the shipyard. 2010 - built the 12,000th Fairline - Squadron 55.
The global economic crisis has not bypassed the famous brand. But what's the way out? Only forward! New investors and owners make the only right decision: to attract the best management of the yachting world, Carl Gilding and Russell Curie, who decide to entrust the design to the famous Italian designer Alberto Mancini, and the engineering to the Dutch design bureau Vripack. The result exceeded all expectations. In 2017, the new Fairline Targa 63 GTO receives the highest award of the World Yacht Trophy for Best Design at the Cannes Yachting Festival.
Now the Fairline shipyard builds four series of yachts: F-line, Targa, Phantom and Squadron.
The most compact among the Fairline- F-line. Luxurious 10m “deep V” hull daycruiser provides excellent seaworthiness, Volvo-Penta engines (gasoline or diesel) with 440 - 860 hp. accelerate the yacht to 48 knots.
The flagship of the shipyard is Squadron 68. She is 21 m long and 5.2 m wide. This yacht has the most spacious flybridge in her class. Caterpillar (2300 hp) or MAN (2400 hp) main engines allow this 44-ton yacht to reach speeds of up to 31 knots. On board can accommodate 6-8 people, and the maximum passenger capacity is 16 people.
