The Fairline 48 was yet another hot new model we found at the 2014 London Boat Show. There are three versions of Fairline's 48, and this is the "Open" model, designed for the sunny Mediterranean when you'd like to feel the sun and the breeze at every opportunity. It's lighter, faster and also less expensive than the other two versions - but that doesn't necessarily mean it's the best pick, for you. Check out the video, to make that decision, for yourself.


In this Fairline 48 video, Alex comments that the attention to detail is excellent, and he points out some interesting features that have been carefully thought out. There's plenty of room below, but unlike the other versions of this 48-footer, the galley is tucked down below as well. If the 48-foot size of powerboat is of interest to you, another you might want to check out is the New Princess V48 Open.
