Founded in Oundle in the English Midlands in 1967, Fairline has moved on from its original 19-foot river cruiser to establish itself as a builder of very seaworthy and finely-tuned recreational craft. There are currently ten models from 38 to 78 feet in length across two product lines - the Targa line (from the 38 to the 62GT) and the Squadron line (from the 42 to the 78 Custom).
The Targa line comprises modern express cruisers either in Open or Gran Turismo (GT) form - and the boats have deservedly won a committed following for their excellent ride quality and handling composure. The larger Squadron line is dedicated to flybridge cruisers, each of which is designed to put well appointed and generously proportioned living spaces at the heart of the boating experience.
Large, spacious entertaining areas are in evidence throughout the Squadron 78, from the extensive saloon and upper deck areas, through to the private staterooms, where light and space are combined to stunning effect. All are created using only the very finest materials, including exotic woods, hand-selected granite work surfaces and state-of-the-art design features.
The layout options are extensive and are a match for even the most creative brief. A consultant from our Yacht Division can advise on 3 or 4 cabin layouts, numerous bathroom and galley configurations, separate walk-in wardrobes and the potential to extend the owner’s suite (to incorporate an office away from the office, perhaps?).
Grand private staterooms combine light and space to stunning effect and as you move through the large, spacious entertaining areas you start to appreciate the wealth of well-considered features. In fact, it boasts the most extensive list of standard equipment of any yacht in its sector.
The elegant floating seat rests surround the large teak feature table, where 'secret' lights in the table itself create a discreet, romantic ambience. Poise and sophistication also reveal themselves while under way – the design places heavy items (fuel, for instance) over the centre of buoyancy, which gives it renowned sea-keeping properties, a pleasant sound and low vibration throughout.
