Fairline: Looking to the Future


The Targa 50 OPEN, Targa 50 GT and Squadron 50 – these three yachts build on our already well- established 48ft offering, with key specification and aesthetic differences, courtesy of the Fairline Yachts Design Studio, headed by Wayne Huntley.

With a thoroughly contemporary and stylish look, the new 50ft yachts have luxurious details synonymous with Fairline, coupled with a more sporty, racy feel.

The new exterior styling features stunning anthracite vinyl wrapped hardtops. There is a bold choice of burnt orange, vivid red or electric blue exterior upholstery, and complementing helm seats, creating a standout impression as soon as you step onboard.

The signature Fairline Yachts feature bulkhead gives the master cabin added wow factor. The interior has rich, luxurious textures throughout. These include New Zealand wool twist carpets, oak flooring, Carrara white marble worktops, Italian leather, highlights of satin bronze, and carefully considered atmospheric lighting throughout.

The 50ft range comes with a choice of twin Volvo IPS 600, 650 or 700 engine options, the latter providing
a top speed in excess of 34 knots. With user-friendly joystick controls, Volvo’s impressive IPS engines offer excellent manoeuvrability, outstanding performance and low emissions.

Each of these yachts is available with Fairline’s first Premium Pack, a turnkey solution that offers owners an easy route to boating. Specification highlights in the Premium Pack include high-capacity air-conditioning, an Onan 11Kw generator, a submersible bathing platform with 400kg lifting capacity, a Sleipner bow thruster, a 21kg Ultra anchor with 50m stainless steel chain, Fusion entertainment system with Bluetooth connectivity, teak-laid flybridge floor on the Squadron model, a 12” Volvo GPS Map 8612 touchscreen display, blue exterior mood lighting, and wet bar complete with griddle, fridge, icemaker and sink.


This year’s Cannes Yachting Festival will be the first to see Fairline launch multiple boats to the global market, starting with the eagerly anticipated Squadron 68.

Featuring the award-winning Italian design of Alberto Mancini and world-renowned engineering from Vripack, the Squadron 68 is effortlessly chic, blending luxury design and a well-considered layout with

Fairline’s celebrated build quality and seakeeping ability. Initially called the Squadron 64, the new spacious flybridge model has been renamed to reflect its grand proportions. The Squadron 68 offers 12% more lower deck accommodation space, a 5% larger main deck saloon area, and a 10% bigger flybridge than the outgoing Squadron 65.

The Squadron 68 adds another dimension to Fairline’s established Squadron range, designed in line with the brand’s ethos that nothing should get in the way of the perfect getaway.

Racing out to new destinations is what the
elegant Squadron 68 is designed for. Take in your surroundings from the elevated flybridge, with the breeze on your face and the horizon all around you. Dine with friends in the single-level saloon, served from the well-equipped galley. Lightness, space and a fluid design make time above or below deck both graceful and free flowing. With no question, this is a yacht that will move you.

Spend all day on the expansive flybridge, with three individually styled areas to suit your mood. From triple sun loungers to sumptuous dining to forward seating, the Squadron 68 adapts to whatever you want to do, whenever you want to do it. Whether resting at anchor or cruising offshore, adjust your environment to enhance your experience, just the way you like it.

With contemporary styling by Alberto Mancini, the Squadron 68 is effortlessly modern. Packed with the latest technologies, the highest quality of materials and made by hand in England. The new Squadron 68 pairs fashionable convenience with a considered layout ensuring family adventures beckon every time you approach its sheer, alluring beauty.


The second yacht to be launched in Cannes is Fairline’s new express cruiser, the F-Line 33, which draws on Fairline’s heritage of producing fun and exciting day boats. Once again designed by 2018’s World Yacht Trophies Yacht Designer of the Year winner, Alberto Mancini, the entry-level model is made for summer time entertaining. The deck features a large forward sun bed and a spacious aft seating area, which is configurable to another sun bed. In terms of power, the F-Line 33 is configured with twin Volvo Penta V6-240 petrol engines. But for even greater performance, the options of either twin Volvo V8-430s or twin Mercruiser 8.2 litre petrol V8s are offered. A diesel option utilising twin D3-220s from Volvo is also available.

A beautifully sculptured day boat – When it comes to the sheer good looks of the F-LINE 33, these
few words really do say it all. With Alberto Mancini’s intelligent design providing luxurious, relaxing space throughout, plus stunning finishing touches and the most up-to-date technology, the F-LINE 33 is not a boat that is just ready to cruise to the nearest lunch spot – it is ready for anything!

With a large forward sun bed and a spacious aft seating area, configurable to another sun bed, the 33’s deck is made for summer time entertaining. The sociable self-contained cockpit galley features a high spec BBQ, fridge and ice maker. An innovative drop- down transom extends the usable space onboard

by an additional three feet, creating an increased connection to the water and adds to the overall sociability of the boat.

The F-Line 33 is fitted with Fusion Entertainment’s newly launched premium Apollo system, the first marine entertainment system that features a one-piece glass touchscreen display and built-in Wi-Fi streaming.

Atmospheric signature lighting features thoughtfully throughout the boat, creating a warm ambience onboard whilst looking striking externally. The simple touch screen glass bridge helm reflects the boat’s sleek lines and has been designed with ease of use front of mind.

Fittings such as cleats and fender eyes are neatly hidden away, and pop up when required. The boat’s interior flows seamlessly, featuring a mid-cabin with double bed, day head with shower, U-shaped seating with table and bed conversion.

The entry-level model has twin Volvo Penta V6-240 petrol engines but for even greater performance the option of either twin Volvo V8-430’s or twin Mercruiser 8.2 litre petrol V8’s are offered. A diesel option utilising twin D3-220’s from Volvo is also available.

Fairline Yachts’ managing director, Russell Currie, states, “The F-LINE 33 shows a bold new direction for Fairline, whilst drawing on our long heritage of producing fun and exciting day boats. Critically, it represents the first new model line for Fairline for over 25 years and we are confident the boat will appeal

to a new generation of boat owners, whilst retaining uncompromised Fairline quality and design, which will resonate with our existing customers.”

Fairline Yachts are available locally at Leigh-Smith Yachts, Sanctuary Cove.
