The IPCC, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, publishes reports relevant to man- made climate change at 5-7 year intervals.
In Yunlin, The Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association held three seminars, in Mailiao, Taixi and Huwei, each followed by a vegetarian luncheon. In Chiayi City, the Environmental Protection Bureau invited the Love Ocean Puppet Troupe and the Chiayi Puppet Troupe to perform and give related talks to young audiences at the Cultural Affairs Bureau on three consecutive weekends starting the week prior to Earth Day on April 22, Golden Year 6 (2009).
Every day from February to April of this year, Chuiyang Loving Hut in Chiayi offered 37 “Good Luck!
Starting early this year until mid-May, Association members have delivered more than a hundred talks to more than 40,000 people participating in activities held by the Environmental Protection Bureau, Health Department, Police Department, schools and civic groups. At the Chiayi Railway Station, fellow initiates set up display stands showing Supreme Master Television programs and allowing commuters to freely take global warming flyers. Through Master’s blessing and the hard work of fellow initiates, the idea of the plant-based diet has gained greater attention from the government and reached the hearts of the people through media reports.
For three successive days beginning on Earth Day, over 200 vegetarian food suppliers in Taichung City provided over 10,000 meals to citizens either free of charge or at bargain prices, in hopes of reducing a total of 10,000kg of carbon. Our Tainan Center and the Tainan EP Bureau together held an activity especially addressing the conservation of water sources and the rivers of the Earth. Beginning on the eve of Earth Day, our Penghu Center launched a series of anti-global warming seminars at government organizations, schools and hospitals. Caotun Loving Hut sponsored the Earth Day activity jointly held by the Nantou County Government and the Nan Kai University of Technology by providing delectable vegan lunch boxes free of charge to all teachers, students and other participants. In March and April, our Taipei Center held nearly a hundred global warming seminars, research workshops for teachers and puppet shows, attracting a total of more than 20,000 guests at dozens of colleges and universities, including National Taiwan University. During those two months, the Tainan Center held activities at Kun Shan University and 41 schools to encourage people to mitigate global warming through a plant-based diet, energy conservation and carbon reduction. Our Penghu Center has been committed to helping various schools launch a-vegetarian-day-a-week campaign. To share the message of reducing global warming, our Taipei Center participated in a Yanliao community meeting in Tucheng, a hiking activity in Neihu, a strawberry picking trip in Baishihu and the Fauna and Flora Cultural Festival in Xindian. The Tainan Center held information-sharing activities for people living and working in Yongkang and for the EP Bureau staff. Our Penghu Center was invited to participate in the Penghu Aviation Fair and Flight Safety Promotion Activity. In April, Xinyue Loving Hut in Yilan provided low-carbon vegetarian meals daily to destitute students of National Yilan Commercial Vocational High School and street friends under the care of the Ren An Foundation.
The vegetarian meal boxes prepared by fellow initiates in Kaoshiung have become increasingly popular, with sales peaking at 2,382 one day. Before World Meatless Day on March 20, fellow initiates from the Penghu Center visited Magong Mayor Su Kun-hsiung (photo 1) and Deputy Superintendent Liao Zhou-tang of Penghu Veterans General Hospital (photo 2), to inform them of the global warming situation and the spirit and meaning of Meatless Day. Railway stations, where there is a constant flow of commuters, are ideal locations for sharing the global warming message. The County Council has passed a resolution to this end and the County Government is committed to implementing the policy. Hand crafted to order by Fairline’s highly experienced and dedicated British craftsmen, the Targa 53GT sets a new standard in choice, personalisation and buyer satisfaction, which has never before been properly recognised or met by boat builders. Design Director at Fairline, Andrew Pope, comments, “The Targa 53GT represents a dramatic step forward in motorboat design, using the Fairline design DNA to create a model that perfectly blends form and function.
The Targa 53GT is immediately distinctive thanks to its exterior styling and shows an evolution from the time proven Targa lineage, incorporating the distinctive deck window profile with signature Fairline spear.
Fairline takes a unique approach to constructing its boats with four separate mouldings coming together to create a monocoque construction.
The new model also features a glazed retractable hardtop, a key advantage of which is the pneumatic seal, providing a waterproof seal and seamless one touch movement from closed to open. During the development of the Targa 53GT, emphasis was placed on creating the most flexible Fairline layout to date, providing customers with the chance to create their perfect boat, which is hand built to their specific requirements. Designed to be a sociable boat inside and out, the Targa 53GT combines large cockpit seating and sunbathing areas, with interior saloon seating to provide a seamless flow of entertaining and relaxation space. Companion seating opposite the twin helm adds to the boat’s sociable and inclusive experience. The full beam mid-ship master cabin boasts a king size bed, feature headboard, mood lighting and large panoramic windows.
In addition to the stunning master cabin, there is a VIP forward double cabin, with the option to convert the double to a scissor berth and glazing overhead with integrated blinds. The galley is visually open to the upper deck, ensuring those enjoying the ambience below decks are always connected to other guests. Stunning design details run throughout the boat including feature piping and stitching on the sofas and leather bound and stitched handrails. The boat is designed to reach a minimum of 30 knots in a fully loaded state, including fuel, water, tender and crew and boasts high capacity fuel tanks for longer range, safer cruising.
Every feature has been carefully planned to enhance the on board experience of the Targa 53GT, including gyro stabilisation as a factory fitted option, a 45% increase in air conditioning output, 35% increase in exterior glazing, and 70% increase in cockpit seating and sunbed areas. Prices start from £649,000 excluding VAT, with the 2x Volvo Penta D11-675 EVC engine option. Douglas Culverwell, Sales and Marketing Director, adds, “The Targa 53GT gives an idea of the shape of things to come, not just for Fairline but for the whole market. The 53ft range has taken the same state-of-the-art technologies and industry-leading production methods the successful 48ft range benefits from and developed them further, creating a boat that not only allows the customer to design the interior styling and layout around their unique needs but also delivers against Fairline’s reputation of high quality, innovative yacht design. Available from spring 2016, the new Targa 53 OPEN will feature uninterrupted entertaining above decks from the platform to companionway. The new design concept created by Fairline for the Targa 53GT enables the buyer to make extensive personalised choices to create their own boat, hand built to their specific requirements.
Hidden yet significant features of the Targa 53GT include the option of factory fitted gyro stabilisation as standard, a 45% increase in standard air conditioning output, 35% increase in exterior glazing, 70% increase in cockpit seating and sunbed areas, and the space for larger TV screens as standard. Also representing Fairline’s proven Targa range will be the Targa 48GT, a sports cruiser packed with new technologies and exceptional engineering.
The Targa 62GT boasts stunning performance and excellent sea-keeping, as well as impressive accommodation throughout. Completing the Fairline offering at Cannes Yachting Festival will be the beautifully proportioned Squadron 65. Fairline’s Targa 53GT is immediately distinctive thanks to its exterior styling and shows an evolution from the time proven Targa lineage, incorporating the distinctive deck window profile with signature Fairline spear. As part of the annual Ipswich Maritime Festival, Fairline will be officially launching its new East Coast dealership with a weekend of celebrations and the opportunity for VIPs and potential customers to experience Fairline’s yachts. A selection of luxury Fairline models will be on display at the launch, including the Targa 38 OPEN and the stunning Squadron 42.
The Fairline East Coast launch will span the weekend, with gourmet canapés and taster cocktails provided for all visitors and live music on Saturday afternoon. Fairline East Coast is a family run business, with over 25 years of experience in boat sales. Supported by the British Marine Federation and the Shipwrights Apprenticeship Scheme, which encourages businesses to train apprentices, Evolve Business Training - the employer focused arm of Tresham College of Further and Higher Education in Northamptonshire - will work closely with Fairline to develop and deliver the apprenticeship training standards and assessments. Help For Children Asia is an international charity supported by the hedge fund and financial services industry which raises money to fund programmes to help prevent and treat child abuse in the US, Canada, the Cayman Islands, UK and Asia.
The inaugural benefit gala, held at the Exchange Auditorium at Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited, was attended by 220 guests from Asia’s alternative investments industry. The neutral Capri scheme was chosen by the owner for the interior of the boat, because it offers an elegant, muted palette featuring soothing taupe, white and cream colourways with duck egg blue hues, accentuating the feeling of space of the Targa 48 OPEN. In its open form, with the canvas roof retracted, the Targa 48 OPEN offers a sense of freedom that continues out onto the cockpit with its large, inviting sunpad. This appointment continues to strengthen the UK dealer network for Fairline following the recent expansion of Bates Wharf’s representation to the entire South Coast and complemented by Fairline Wales and Fairline Channel Islands dealerships in the UK. Burton Waters is family run business, started in 1988 and now has two sales and service locations. Adam Cox, Burton Waters Sales Director said “This is a very exciting time for Burton Waters, the direct factory relationship combined with the location of the ship yard and Ipswich technical centre go hand in hand with our business as we look to support our loyal customers. To ensure that current and future Fairline boat owners are fully supported the new Fairline East Coast team will undergo immediate training at the Fairline facilities. Colin Sykes, CEO Fairline Boats said “Burton Waters are a terrific business, sharing our vision and philosophy of customer satisfaction and service. Prospective and existing Fairline customers alike were able to step aboard the models on display, which included the expansive Squadron 65, fitted with gyro stabilisastion, allowing you to enjoy the comfort and sociability of this boat, no matter what the weather brings. Also at the event was the Targa 48GT which features an electric hard top roof so you are assured of a wonderful open-air experience which is perfect for the Egyptian climate. Fairline South Mallorca and Fairline North Mallorca will be on hand throughout the show to welcome prospective and existing customers onto the stand and enjoy their hospitality.
The two Fairline dealerships shall be hosting a VIP wine tasting event for all Fairline owners and customers. They will be exhibiting four privately-owned boats from the current model range at this year’s show, including the ever popular Targa 38, and a 2014 Targa 48 and Targa 50.
This progresses an already strong relationship between the two businesses and will ensure that Fairline customers continue to receive the best service across the South Coast, seven days a week. Bates Wharf Marine Sales Ltd will operate the Fairline Southampton offices and berths as well as continuing to represent Fairline from its offices in Poole, Chertsey and Eastbourne. These South Coast dealerships strengthen Fairline’s current UK representation that includes Fairline Wales and Fairline Channel Islands, ensuring customers find their perfect Fairline. Karl Gilding has been appointed to head up the Yacht Division, ensuring the Fairline sales process for its larger yachts is seamless for customers – from choosing a boat right through to delivery. Karl joins a strong and established global sales team at Fairline that is resolute in supporting and growing its dealer network in core markets. Karl began his career in the marine business with the first importer of Sea Ray Boats and has experience in both the retail and manufacturing sides of the industry. The Targa 53 GRAN TURISMO and Squadron 53 follow on from the success of Fairline’s recently launched 48ft models, also based on a common platform.
Fairline has ambitious plans to grow awareness of the brand in the Arabian Gulf region, building on the success of Fairline Egypt and Fairline Lebanon.

The new dealership has ambitious plans to grow awareness of the Fairline brand in the Arabian Gulf region, building on the success of Fairline Egypt and Fairline Lebanon. The first of these new additions is the Shadow S, which was revealed to the boating public for the very first time. Furthermore, Fairline revealed a 2015 Targa 38 on its stand, featuring a number of updates to the boat’s specification, layout and interior and exterior styling. Among the exciting announcements in Fairline’s plans for the future were significant changes to the interiors of its elegant range.
Alongside the new product and design features that are to be showcased, Fairline is displaying a wide selection of its luxury motor yacht range, including the Targa 48 GRAN TURISMO, Targa 48 OPEN, Squadron 48, Squadron 65 and Targa 62 GRAN TURISMO. In recent weeks Fairline has unveiled two new additions to its engineering team to support the new product plans and underline Fairline’s commitment to high quality engineering and boatbuilding excellence. Continuing to focus on high quality engineering and boatbuilding excellence, Fairline has invested in two new appointments to support the upcoming programme. Stefan and Ben have joined existing team members, Gary Smith, Fairline Technical Manager and Andrew Pope, Design Director, to underpin the outstanding engineering and design expertise at Fairline.
With a lifetime in the boating industry, Stefan brings a wealth of global boat industry knowledge and experience gained with leading distributors and manufacturers across the world. Ben will be working alongside Stefan to deliver the engineering design, development and validation of new and current products. Leading British luxury Motor Yacht manufacturer, Fairline Boats, will showcase the Targa 48 GRAN TURISMO, alongside its elegant Squadron 50, at both the Norwalk and Annapolis boat shows this autumn.
The Fairline Chesapeake team will be on hand throughout both shows to welcome prospective and existing Fairline owners and visitors onto the stand to take a look at the models. The Targa 48GT is powered by Volvo Penta IPS matched to a dynamic new hull designed specifically for the characteristics of the IPS drive and features a beautifully spacious flybridge and newly styled interior. With intelligent space-saving innovations engineered throughout the boat, the Targa 48GT provides sociable spaces with clever design touches. In addition to allowing visitors to browse an extensive selection of luxury Motor Yachts, powerboats and sailboats, the shows will offer visitors the chance to take part in on-the water demos and boat handling clinics, sailing seminars and offers a range of activities for children. Douglas brings to the role a wealth of global boat industry knowledge and experience acquired over the last 17 years. Douglas will be responsible for the strategic growth and development of Fairline’s dealer network throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
The Squadron 48 and Targa 48 GRAN TURISMO will be showcased on the European stage for the first time, displaying the best of British craftsmanship on Fairline’s elegant stand. Fairline has developed the new 48ft trio, that also includes the Targa 48 OPEN, with careful attention to global customer feedback and as a result, an array of options is available to ensure each model is perfectly suited to different markets. Meanwhile, the fresh and ingenious design of the Squadron 48 interior ensures there is plentiful space with a voluminous saloon and large relaxed seating areas to both port and starboard.
The leading British luxury boat brand will be a main sponsor of the White Helmets, providing financial support for the team of 25 regular soldiers in 2014, as they delight audiences with heart-stopping stunts at a range of events, festivals and shows across the country. Now in its 88th year, the White Helmets team is famous around the world for its spectacular feats of balance, death-defying crossover rides and daring acrobatics.
Based in Sydney, Australia, Adam Waters will be responsible for the strategic development of the Asia Pacific dealer network, including India, Thailand, China, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
Vicky Farrow will be based at Fairline’s Headquarters in Oundle, liaising between the factory, the dealer network and customers to ensure Fairline provides the best possible customer service. Adam joins James Powell (EMEA) and Steve Leeson (Americas) in the sales team led by James Robinson, Fairline's Sales Director. The Squadron 78 CUSTOM is now available with an integrated fixed flybridge hard top surrounding an electric retractable canvas roof. The new hard top model recently concluded sea trials at Fairline’s test facility in Ipswich.
Fairline celebrated the launch of the 100th Squadron 78 model earlier this year at the London Boat Show. Fairline also exhibited two models from the iconic new 48ft range in Istanbul, during the CNR International Eurasia Boat Show at the end of the month.
23 members of staff working across the Fairline factories will reach the quarter century milestone in the months ahead – the highest number in one year to date. One such employee is Line Manager Gary Stanford, who started out working on the production moulds at Fairline. To acknowledge 25 years of loyal service, members of staff can choose a gift and flowers are also sent to their spouses or partners. The introduction of the brand’s new 48ft range has contributed to the recent increase in demand. A new feature of the stand, Fairline’s Concept Cinema, gave customers, show visitors and industry guests a glimpse of the future of motor boating with the Fairline eSprit concept boat. The eSprit was the focus of Fairline’s Concept Cinema at the 2014 London Boat Show, an all-new feature of the Fairline stand. The concept boat showcases an ergonomically optimised interior and includes a Multifunctional Steering Position with paddle throttles and integral LED control display. Power options for the Fairline eSprit consist of a 400hp diesel engine, capable of 30 knots in diesel mode, coupled to an electric motor. Dedicated to the Fairline eSprit, the Concept Cinema brought an exciting new dimension to the Fairline stand at the 2014 London Boat Show.
The original Squadron 78 was first unveiled to the world in 2003 at a prestigious event near the Tower of London. Exhibiting at Ramp 39, Fairline will join yacht builders from around the world at Florida’s largest annual event, which transforms Collins Avenue into a multi-million dollar showcase. Perfectly suited for the Miami boating scene, the Targa 48 OPEN is an elegantly appointed two cabin, double en-suite model geared towards the design trend of spacious sociable areas for entertaining inside and out. The Targa 48 OPEN is powered by Volvo Penta IPS matched to a dynamic new hull designed specifically for the range, making significant use of new technologies and industry-leading production systems. The MOC (Meridional Overturning Circulation) begins in the North Atlantic where water evaporates to fall as rain, leaving behind its salt. Each chapter of these comprehensive reports is written by coordinating lead authors, lead authors, and many contributing authors. But the truth is, the opposing view is equally compelling when you read reports that the Earth’s temperature is currently dropping, not rising, along with believable reports that the increase in CO2 is the result of the Earth warming, not the cause. Hackers obtained and disseminated emails that suggest manipulation of data, destruction of data, attempts to block efforts to reveal data, and efforts to block and discredit any research that does not support the man-made global warming theory. When human beings become polarized in their beliefs, they search for evidence to defend their positions rather than searching for the truth with an open mind. More than 40 reports on their activities have appeared in newspapers and magazines as well as on radio, television and the Internet.


After attending these seminars, Yunlin County Magistrate Su Chih-fen and Councillor Liao Ching-hsiang promised to push for the provision of nutritious vegetarian lunches twice a week in elementary and junior high schools. The Love Ocean Puppet Troupe delivered 18 performances in elementary schools, kindergartens and orphanages in the area, while the Chiayi Puppet Troupe had about 10 presentations. Find a Job!” lunch boxes to jobless people, hoping they would soon find employment and more people would know about preventing global warming with the plant-based diet. These informative gatherings have effectively persuaded students to switch to the plant-based diet, and introduced a new concept to parents and school principals.
Our Formosan initiates in the medical profession funded and published a booklet entitled The Animal-Free Diet, Nutrition and Health — a Compilation of Scientific Evidence, to serve as reference for both government and people. Inspired by Master’s loving endeavors, local Centers around Formosa continue to devote all their efforts toward inspiring people to save the world with a vegan diet. Many of the suppliers appeal on their own Web sites for greater support of the lifestyle, and some offer attractive discounts to encourage people to eat more vegan food.
This activity elicited extensive coverage from the media, as well as positive affirmation and support from the government. In addition to showing videos on global warming, fellow initiates launched an Earth Day Be Veg! Apart from providing vegetarian recipes to the schools, they also paid a visit to Miss Chen Qiu-xi, head of the Health Education Section under the Education Bureau. In March and April, fellow initiates distributed 330,000 SOS flyers and 6,000 DVDs, 30,000 vegan recipes as well as 70,000 flyers in the effort to ban meat, alcohol, tobacco and drugs. Fellow initiates also participated in beach-cleaning efforts held by the bureau and distributed 1,500 bags of vegetarian snacks together with SOS flyers to the participants. Fellow initiates designed a quiz on global warming with giveaway prizes and offered free sampling of vegan food. Fellow initiates put flags and banners of the New Vegan Lifestyle campaign around the venue, hoping to remind people of the importance to Be Veg!
While extending love and concern to them, they also hope to influence a change in their diet. Martin Center, encouraged Association members to prepare vegetarian meal boxes to promote the new lifestyle, fellow initiates from many Centers around Formosa have been to Kaohsiung to learn about the preparatory process and marketing experience, so as to develop more channels for promoting the plant-based diet. Mayor Su expressed strong support and promised to encourage his staff at City Hall to be veg on this special day. Our fellow initiates were invited to give talks on this topic at the County Hall, where they received the earnest support from high-ranking officials. Fairline has attended to every small detail – from the unrivalled performance, proven sea-keeping, and the exceptional quality of every aspect of on board space, facilities and features. The use of smart design principles throughout the boat eliminates the owner’s need to compromise. Continuing the Fairline tradition of timeless design, the Targa 53GT incorporates a beautifully tapered hull glazing that emphasises the new model’s dynamic character.
This procedure, along with Fairline’s resin infusion process, adds structural strength and rigidity while reducing weight, noise and vibration. The highest quality interior materials are used throughout, including stone worktops and leather panelled drawers and bed surround.
Owners can choose from three beautiful stone worktop options and the galley’s contemporary yet practical features include a full height fridge freezer, induction hobs and soft close drawers. Owners can select options for sofa coverings, fabric and leather from four sumptuous interior schemes based on popular boating destinations – Capri, St Tropez, Amalfi and the Hamptons.
Up to 725bhp is available through shaft drives, which better suits the handling and performance characteristics of a 50ft+ boat.
This new model refuses to be categorised with production line boats and as the order books are already filling up, we welcome the imminent boat show season. The boat incorporates a beautifully tapered hull glazing which emphasises the dynamic character of the Targa concept and ensures that the spacious master cabin, lower galley and saloon below, are filled with natural light.
The Targa 53 OPEN will offer a choice of two shaft driven, Volvo engine options, offering a minimum fully loaded speed in excess of 30 knots and a range of at least 300 nautical miles. All models will have a common platform approach which offer flexibility of layout and options to suit the individual customer and are at the heart of Fairline’s new design philosophy.
A beautifully appointed two cabin, double en-suite model, the Targa 48 OPEN embraces the design trend of spacious sociable areas – both inside and out. The hull, for instance, has been specifically designed to complement the Volvo Penta IPS engines, resulting in precise handling, along with impeccable sea keeping.
The model has a generous, open cockpit that features a highly sociable J-shaped seating and dining area, sitting ahead of a luxuriously large sunpad and a bathing platform featuring a hydraulic hi-lo system. With an increase in size comes an increase in the ability to really impress and the Squadron 65 does just that. Nowhere is it more elegantly expressed than in the long, wide single-level interior - a testament to the 65’s ingenious flat floor design.
It incorporates a beautifully tapered hull glazing that emphasises the Targa 53GT’s dynamic character. A key attribute of the Targa 53GT is the full beam mid-ship master cabin with king size bed, feature headboard and large panoramic windows bathing the cabin in natural light.
The ever popular and proven Squadron 42 and Squadron 48 complete Fairline’s line-up at the show.
Other local businesses will be on-hand to support the event, including a presence from Graypaul Ferarri, with several luxury cars on display.
The apprenticeship scheme will be a four year programme, during which time apprentices will gain invaluable training and experience, and learn and develop the specialist skills and knowledge required in building luxury motor yachts. Accounting for every luxury, and offering opulent comfort, the Squadron 78 is equipped for relaxing and entertaining on a grand scale. The new look interior makes an impact on the boat’s ambience, which is further enhanced by gloss veneers replacing fabric panels and luxurious touches, such as leather bound and stitched handrails.
Free-flowing sociable areas and large panoramic windows add to the sense of light and space in the generously well-appointed saloon. The colour schemes provide complete flexibility in a choice of fabric and surface finishes allowing for a wider personal expression of interior styling. Following feedback from our customers that they wanted to make bolder interior choices, the myriad of options available within each range blend perfectly together, giving Fairline owners the confidence to make stylish choices in their interiors. The head office is located in a new marina development at Burton Waters on the outskirts of Lincoln with large purpose built facilities, fully equipped for sales and service. We are very proud to have joined a strong UK dealer network representing such a reputable brand and are very much looking forward to the launch of the new 53 foot range of boats”.
The appointment represents another very positive step forward for Fairline and we not only welcome Burton Waters to the Fairline family but look forward to them sharing in our future success. Our trio of Fairline’s have proved very popular and the event has resulted in two retail sales of the Squadron 65 and the Squadron 48, both sold to brand new customers. This will be held on Friday 1st May, from 6pm to 8pm, and all in attendance shall be invited to enjoy some fabulous Mallorcan wines coupled with delicious canapés throughout the evening. Customers will also be able to find out the latest information on the new 53ft project, ahead of the official launch of the Targa 53 GT in September. Bates Wharf Marine Sales Ltd is a fifth-generation family business, established over 100 years ago. The state of the art facilities owned by Bates Wharf Marine Sales Ltd in Chertsey, Surrey will be known as Fairline London and offer customers the largest indoor showroom on the River Thames and a 100-berth marina. We are a family business and are passionate about selling boats and offering first-class customer service.
In his role, Karl will also actively help grow Fairline’s dealer network in North America, a region that the brand is committed to expanding.
He brings to the role a wealth of global boat industry knowledge and experience acquired during his 30 years in the marine industry. He then joined Fairline Boats in 1998 as Global Sales Manager and was instrumental in setting up Fairline’s Yacht Division in 2003. I’m excited to be part of the future plans for Fairline, helping to welcome new dealers to the brand and growing our customer base in new and existing territories worldwide. He brings extensive knowledge of both Fairline’s heritage and the global leisure boating sector as a whole to the role.
The dealership benefits from easy access to the beautiful Hangang River, an area of natural beauty and a hotspot for leisure sports and boating enthusiasts in South Korea. We have long admired the Fairline range for its elegance, high quality and versatility and are delighted to be representing such an esteemed brand. Customers are also able to choose the configuration that best suits their individual use of the boat.
There is a strong appetite for new models in the region and we are certain that our customers will be very impressed with the Squadron 53 and Targa 53 GT.
These models extend our common platform approach, offering the flexibility and opportunities for customisation that are at the heart of Fairline’s new design philosophy.
Fairline Middle East will showcase some of Fairline’s newest models at the 2016 Dubai International Boat Show and will be introducing a number of models into the region in the meantime. Boat owners in the region have access to the country’s 300 exquisite manmade islands and the Arabian Gulf coastline has recently seen a great deal of development. Launching to the world for the first time, designs for the new interiors are on display on the Fairline stand throughout the show, with space dedicated to each of the four new colour themes: Amalfi, Capri, Hamptons and St Tropez. The popular Squadron Bar is once again located opposite the stand entrance and visitors are invited to enjoy Fairline Squadron and Targa beers, developed especially for the brand.
Stefan Whitmarsh joins as Head of Engineering and Ben Harrison as Engineering Manager, both based at Fairline’s Headquarters in Oundle. He is widely recognised as a leading authority in shipbuilding, construction, manufacturing methods and the operation of large yachts. In his new role at Fairline Stefan will be responsible for driving the new product introduction programme and developing the design and engineering systems across the product range. Fairline has developed the new trio with careful attention to global customer feedback and as a result, an array of options is available to ensure each model is perfectly suited to different markets. This model attracted a great deal of interest at the London Boat Show earlier this year when it launched to the world. He has worked for a number of leading distributors and manufacturers across the world, including as Regional Sales Manager at Viking Sport Cruisers Inc. He joins Adam Waters (Asia Pacific), Steve Leeson (Americas) and James Powell (UK and Spain) in the sales team, which is led by James Robinson, Fairline's Sales Director. This is a world class company, offering premium luxury Motor Yachts manufactured using state-of-the-art technology. He brings extensive knowledge of the global leisure boating sector to the role which will stand him in good stead to support and grow our dealer network in core markets.
The Fairline team will be on hand throughout the show to welcome prospective and existing Fairline owners and visitors aboard these new models and talk them through the range’s striking design.
All three models are powered by Volvo Penta IPS matched to a dynamic new hull, designed specifically for the characteristics of the IPS drive, and feature a beautifully spacious flybridge and newly styled interior. The Squadron 48 also offers numerous opportunities for relaxing in style; the flybridge offers a large seating area around an outdoor dining table which can be lowered to convert into a sunpad in addition to forward-facing seating alongside the upper helm. The Cannes Yachting Festival is the gateway to the Mediterranean motor yachting world and the design of the 48ft range is perfect for the boating region. Wearing their Royal Signals uniform and signature white helmets, the team perform pyramid lifts, jump ramps and even navigate burning hay bales on their Triumph motorcycles. As a team, we rely solely on our wonderful sponsors for financial support, so it’s fantastic to have secured the backing of such a prestigious British brand.
The courage, daring and talent of these men is incredible and as a British brand, Fairline Boats is committed to supporting the best that this country has to offer. Adam brings to the role 12 years’ experience working with a number of prestigious European motor yacht brands. She will also support customer factory visits and manage boat handovers at Fairline’s testing facility in Ipswich.
Fairline expect to complete the new look sales organisation with the announcement of a final Regional Sales Director in the next few weeks. Fairline is committed to building its worldwide dealer network in 2014 and showcasing the Fairline range across the globe.
The new roof brings a permanent structure to the already commanding flybridge, with large sunbathing area and plenty of space for open-air entertaining. We have always sought ways to adapt our range to the needs of our customers and work closely with them to create high-end motor yachts that are truly unique. The beautiful sports cruiser was unveiled from beneath a huge union flag during the launch, showcasing British design and manufacturing at its very best. The world’s second biggest boat and yacht exhibition on land, the show typically attracts over 1,000 high-quality brands. The response from the US audience to the debut of the Targa 48 OPEN was very positive and visitors to the show in Istanbul admired our two 48ft models in particular.
Recruited in 1989, these loyal employees joined the company just four years after the launch of the very first Targa model and two years before the debut of the now renowned Squadron series. One of the best things about working here is the pride we take in watching our high quality motor yachts roll out of the door. For 23 members of the team to reach the 25 year mark is an incredible testament to the passion and dedication of our talented workforce. Family members will also be invited to a special presentation, where the achievement will be formally recognised. Sales were excellent at the show, showing a strong growth over last year and our impressive stand was busy with visitors throughout the show.
Fairline also celebrated a major milestone at the show with the launch of its 100th Squadron 78 model, one of the brand’s most successful and iconic luxury motor yachts.
The concept incorporates sustainable materials in construction and design, without compromising Fairline’s class-leading styling and performance. This is one of the main highlights of the year for the leisure marine industry and an event that strengthens the UK’s position as a major destination for buyers of luxury yachts.
The concept model offered visitors an exciting proposition for the future of sustainable motor boating, without compromising Fairline’s class-leading styling and performance. Bio-derived epoxy resins with needle punched flax fibres are used in construction and the interior features ecoyarn upholstery fabrics, specially treated with a waterproofing plasma process.
The size of the boat, the materials used, the necessary manufacturing processes; everything was put to the sustainability test. Visitors were welcome to explore the concept design and discover more about the future of sustainable luxury motor boating.
Since then, it has gone from strength to strength, becoming one of Fairline’s most successful and iconic luxury motor yachts with a very loyal following.
The model offers an electric canvas roof as standard, as well as a garage for optional jet tender and submersible bathing platform. This has ensured the new Targa offers the highest levels of quality and performance, with considerable weight reduction, exceptional engineering and excellent sea-keeping – everything you would expect from a Fairline.
We’re looking forward to launching the Targa 48 OPEN to the US market and showcasing the best of British to visitors at the show. With so many scientists in agreement, it is surprising to discover that a number of scientists continue to debate whether the current warming trend is caused by man or is due to Mother Nature’s natural cycles. Clark’s belief is that solar activity over the last few hundred years provides the proper correlation to global temperatures. Together with the Chiayi Environmental Protection Bureau, our Chiayi Center convened community seminars on environmental protection and halting global warming. Fellow initiates also compiled and published the Yunlin Plant-Based Diet Guide Book with detailed listings of vegetarian food outlets in Yunlin, which is welcomed by both restaurants and the general public. On that day, Minister Stephen Shen of the Environmental Protection Administration accepted an interview with Supreme Master Television.
China Television and the Economic Daily News carried special reports about the New Vegan Lifestyle movement. Deputy Director Wang Jin-zhong of the EP Bureau appealed to citizens to love animals and refrain from using animal products.
The EP Bureau convened a series of activities and requested our Center to provide vegetarian snacks to the participating guests. Miss Chen plans to upload the recipes and information on the benefits of the plant-based diet onto the bureau’s website as a reference for school lunch providers so that the children may enjoy more nutritious and healthy vegan lunches. He also appealed to all Magong citizens to support Meatless Day and to go veg one day a week. I know it is, because I have been nauseated since listening to the president's summit last Thursday.If nothing else in this never-ending suffocation of American health care has been clear, the sham was transparent enough. The Targa 53GT redefines the 50 foot boating experience, providing outstanding quality in design and performance for the uncompromising end-user.
The boat’s classic swept stern shape integrates the hull lines, creating a functional yet attractive transom that gives the boat a dynamic look, even when at rest.


The Targa 53GT has a single level floor from the cockpit to saloon, with one step up to the companionway to maximise the feeling of space. The platform holds an integrated Armstrong ladder for those wanting to swim, which conveniently swings and locks away when not in use. A stunning feature drinks unit stands next to the starboard sofa and a 40 inch rise and fall flat screen television as standard. A flush mounted 32 inch television, along with a standalone vanity unit with illuminated mirror are just a couple of examples of the luxurious touches in the master cabin. Often overlooked, the twin cabin features the same attention to detail as the other accommodation, with no need for guests to sleep in bunk beds and design touches including a full length mirror. Storage options in the galley include large eyeline lockers above the worktop and an under floor larder. Customers are also able to choose between a two cabin or three cabin configuration that best suits their individual requirements. There will also be the option to add stabilisation, with the boat accepting both fin and gyroscopic stabilisers offering the highest level of comfort onboard.
The model also features an electric canvas roof as standard, as well as a garage for an optional jet tender and a submersible platform. One of the most attractive features is its electric retractable glazed roof with one-touch operation and pneumatic seal, creating a haven for sun-worshippers.
This 65-foot Squadron appears to go one step further than similar sized boats on every level. Having such uncomplicated, single floor levels is normally reserved for much larger yachts, but our designers have achieved just that on this 65-footer. The boat’s classic swept stern shape integrates the hull lines, creating a functional yet attractive transom with optional submersible bathing platform. In addition to the stunning master cabin, there is a forward double cabin and a versatile twin cabin to port. Every Targa 53GT can be customised with Fairline’s high quality choice of specifications, equipment and interior options, each thoroughly tested and evaluated for its suitability, performance and style. It embodies exclusivity and elegance with performance, boasting extensive saloon and upper deck areas, private staterooms, all featuring light and space used to stunning effect, and state-of-the-art design features. The second location is in Ipswich Haven Marina, a marina that is shared with the current Fairline Technical Centre. There is real excitement amongst the dealer network and wider business at this time, with the exciting development of the new 53 foot range of boats. We have a fantastic working relationship with Fairline and it is a real honour to be working with such a prestigious British brand.
Karl went on to work as Sales and Dealer Development Manager for Sunseeker International, before returning to Fairline.
Fairline is committed to showcasing its range across the globe, with the strongest dealer network in the world. Established by Dealer Principal, Sangheon Jeon, Marine Grande specialises in sales and servicing for global luxury motor yacht brands. South Korea has a growing boating community and we are committed to drawing more and more people into yachting by introducing them to global brands like Fairline. At least two engine options will be available with these models, offering a minimum fully loaded speed of 30 knots and a range of at least 300 nautical miles. In April this year, Fairline Egypt will exhibit the new Squadron 48 and Targa 48 GRAN TURISMO fitted with crew cabins, alongside a new Squadron 65, at the dealerships’ own event in El Gouna.
Both dealerships, along with Fairline Lebanon in Beirut, were established by Managing Director, Tarek Khalil, who has been part of the Fairline dealer network for five years and is a Fairline owner himself. The region has a growing community of luxury boat owners, who take advantage of the perfect boating conditions that we enjoy all year round. Throughout the boat’s exterior, special edition design touches contrast burnt orange upholstery, orange lighting, and an orange version of the iconic Fairline shield with carbon, graphite and titanium, including graphite hardtop and navigation equipment and a titanium coloured deck. Stefan and Ben have joined existing team members Gary Smith, Fairline Technical Manager, and Andrew Pope, Design Director, to create a new look team to drive forward the new product strategy. Vicky has many years of experience working with some of the best known motor yacht brands and is herself a very active leisure boater. These new appointments will underpin our international sales strategy and ensure our customers can count on the best possible service from Fairline. The Squadron 78 CUSTOM is a great example of this, as our most bespoke and customised Fairline boat ever. The stylish Targa 48 OPEN and Squadron 48 were admired by visitors from all over Europe, Asia and the Middle East, alongside four other models from the Fairline range. The year ahead promises to be an exciting one for Fairline, with planned attendance at boat shows in China, Japan, Australia, South Africa and across Europe. All three new models feature a dynamic new hull, significant weight savings and an array of available options to ensure each model is perfectly suited to different markets.
As a result of this excellent news, we are delighted to be recruiting for roles across the factory and have been able to approach previous employees. Sales have been excellent at the show with the final total due to exceed 2013, further extending our forward order book into late 2014 for some models. We’ve been amazed at the positive response to what started as an adventure in concept design. They offered assistance to some NGOs in holding a fair and a Mother’s Day singing competition, supplying vegan dinners and conducting discussions on global warming.
The suggestion had the immediate support of the students and teachers, who wasted no time scheduling the next talk and vegan burger teaching session. A fellow initiate who retired early from government service to devote his time to advocating the plant-based diet and halting global warming, caught the attention of journalists, whose news reports have helped readers realize the urgency of and the solution to the climate change crisis.
He was very glad to learn that more than 1,500 vegetarian food suppliers were participating in the New Vegan Lifestyle campaign. Fellow initiates from Taipei’s College Group held information-sharing events and provided delicious vegan snacks at the crowded Arts Park. Lin Xue-hua, a secretary at the Public Health Bureau, called the New Vegan Lifestyle campaign an excellent activity that introduces a new concept to the people. County Magistrate Wang Chien-fa openly urged the county government staff to set a leading example by taking vegetarian meals on Earth Day, so as to reduce carbon emissions to save the Earth. His appeal was made in the presence of journalists, hoping that the media would encourage people to adopt the plant-based diet in order to save the Earth.
Deputy Magistrate Lee Ying-yuan presided over the seminar, and our Association served delicious vegan meals, which greatly impressed all the school principals present.
The Targa 48 OPEN offers exceptional performance and manoeuvrability thanks to its Volvo Penta IPS with joystick control. This will give customers a unique opportunity to view the Fairline fleet of boats and provide Burton Waters with second to none technical support for their customers. Douglas worked as Sales Director for Sealine, both at the original company in the UK and also at its new home with Hanse Yachts AG in Germany.
The Concept Cinema caused quite a stir and was a very popular feature of the stand throughout the show. All these endeavors received extensive support from local political leaders including city councilors and their assistants. He also shared his views on the vegan diet with members of the media, who later approached Supreme Master Television reporters for more information related to the new diet. She hoped that people would love not only themselves and their families, but also the Earth.
On that day, they distributed 6,500 flyers and attracted about 2,000 people to try the vegetarian delicacies. Magistrate Su also invited our fellow initiates to prepare a vegan breakfast for representatives of various sports organizations, to whom she introduced our Association and the concept of a plant-based diet in preventing global warming.
We heard them mock their own bill by referring to it as a "prop." We watched as those who opposed the bill were insulted and shut off from discussion, and the end result was an immediate threat to "go along" with the 2,400 pages of lower- quality, higher-cost, more restrictive medical treatment or take it up at the polls in November.Do the progressives have no intellectual honesty left in them?
England is proposing to spend billions to offset the effects of global warming for island nations and poor nations impacted by rising ocean levels. In addition to that, fellow initiates were also invited to serve a vegan lunch at the Zhucun Elementary School anniversary celebration, evoking the interest of all the teachers and students in the plant-based diet. Many vegetarian food suppliers helped to share the information of the noble vegan diet with local communities. Tainan Mayor Hsu Tain-tsair and EP Bureau Director Jhang Huang-jhen signed the petition to show their support; they were joined by more than 500 people on that day. Fellow initiates also approached local vegetarian food outlets encouraging them to promote the New Vegan Lifestyle by providing vegan meals at discount prices from Earth Day to Environment Day, in order to attract more people to adopt the plant-based diet and understand the importance of this healthy and compassionate lifestyle. On another occasion, Deputy Magistrate Lee spoke extensively to participants in a biking tour on the veg diet and its connection to environmental protection. They know, as every American instinctively knows, this bill is not affordable to the citizens of this country, and they also know that it will reduce the availability and quality of health care for the majority of citizens. Each of them received a Green mug, biscuits and informative material related to the campaign. It appears that, like spoiled children, these '60s leftovers care not about anything except their own power.
Our Center served over a thousand delicious and sumptuous vegan lunch boxes and distributed flyers to all exhibitors and visitors. If we allow one-sixth of our economy to be taken over by what has essentially become a handful of "government gangsters" (Michael Barrone's term, not mine) we are in serious trouble. Move on to the important stuff.It's like a group who claims the sky is falling, using doctored data to "prove" it.
Or in the case of global warming, government will force you to give it money, burden and tax industry with green regulation, and enjoy telling the rest of us what to do in perpetuity.As you read this, Democrats in Washington are planning a huge energy tax called cap-and-trade to "fight" climate change. The first of many, I'm sure, it will burden every citizen and business with higher costs of, literally, everything.Questions for the Tallahassee Democrat: Is what George Will says true? Did Phil Jones of the Climatic Research Unit admit there's been no warming in 15 years or that the earth was warmer during the Medieval Warm Period?
Did the IPCC retract its assertion that Himalayan glaciers are melting?Then, why doesn't the Democrat report on it? The state Senate last week approved a 294-percent increase in the state cigarette tax, and unless the House or Gov. Crist rejects the plan, it will punish the very taxpayers the stimulus package purported to save.A A cigarette tax increase is a regressive tax hike on the state's low-income population during a devastating recession. Florida smokers' median household income is almost $10,000 less per year than that of Florida nonsmokers. In some of the state's poorest counties, the cost of cigarettes will surpass 5 percent of household income.A Cigarette tax increases also have detrimental effects on nonsmokers by damaging the larger economy.
Raising the price of a pack of cigarettes higher than those found in bordering states promises to not only repel out-of-state consumers but drive Florida citizens over the state border, where prices are lower. Retailers are justifiably clamoring to defeat the tax hike, because they see sales evaporating as customers buy their cigarettes in Georgia and Alabama, where a carton will cost almost $10 less.
The price advantage that Florida's retailers enjoyed will go up in smoke if this tax hike happens.A Florida Senators are lauding the $1-per-pack hike as a victory for both balanced budgets and anti-smoking initiatives, but the reality is a cigarette tax increase cannot achieve both. Any drop among in-state cigarette purchases goes hand-in-hand with a reduction in tax revenues, leaving another gaping budget hole in the future. As growing numbers of Florida smokers buy their cigarettes somewhere else, revenue projections will not be met. Between FY 2002 and FY 2007, state cigarette taxes were increased 57 times; 39 of those increases yielded revenues that fell short of predictions. In New Jersey, cigarette tax revenue actually declined after a tax hike there, with revenues falling 181 percent short of expectations. A study by the National Taxpayers Union found that, after 35 tobacco tax hikes between 2004 and 2006, 22 states followed up with other tax increases.For those of you keeping score at home, cigarette taxes are bad for smokers, nonsmokers, the poor, retailers, the government and anyone who cares about the state's economy.
It appears the only people these tax hikes benefit are the misinformed, who will change their tune soon enough.The fact that any tax hikes are on the table is preposterous.
Florida expects to receive a $13 billion infusion from the federal government as part of President Obama's stimulus package. We need a government that will encourage entrepreneurs and preserve property rights, thus allowing citizens to invest in America.A This is what has made America great a€” letting one choose his or her own destiny.
But keeping people employed through government jobs at the taxpayers' expense will not stimulate the economy.
Government should reduce jobs, just as the private sector does.A This brings me to ask why we, the citizens of Leon County and Tallahassee, are being hit with so many fees in these troubled times?
Are citizens here obligated to furnish local-government employees with a better lifestyle by imposing fees while local businesses are hurting for sales?
What's next?A The city and county should first look at the situation we have now, which is an ex-fire chief managing the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and a fire chief managing the Tallahassee Fire Department.
Taxpayers are covering the cost now, and taxpayers have always paid for fire protection through their property taxes.In the 1960s, '70s, '80s and '90s, property taxes paid for local government without the fees we are faced with today. It appears that, like spoiled children, these '60s leftovers care not about anything except their own power. Did Phil Jones of the Climatic Research Unit admit there's been no warming in 15 years or that the earth was warmer during the Medieval Warm Period? Did the IPCC retract its assertion that Himalayan glaciers are melting?Then, why doesn't the Democrat report on it?

If Nader hadn't drawn 90,000 Florida votes in 2000, the reasoning goes, a handful of his supporters might have closed their eyes, swallowed hard and voted for Al Gore a€” probably closing the 537-vote gap by which Bush carried the state. A Imagine Clinton or Obama (maybe Clinton and Obama) versus McCain or Mitt Romney or Mike Huckabee next fall.
Once again, the Democrats will be the peace party while the Republicans defend their policies. A It's probably too much to hope for, but the best-known leaders in both Florida political parties are being mentioned for vice president. Charlie Crist's well-timed endorsement of McCain raised his running-mate ratings in the GOP. Bill Nelson, having won four times in a state with 27 electoral votes, should be on the short list of either Democrat.
They're affable and telegenic, but they have shown they can be tough, capable campaigners. On the other hand, gay-marriage proponents, who have pushed this issue in the courts and legislatures from Hawaii to Massachusetts, seem startled and offended when their cause runs into resistance. Ulysses Grant's drinking, Abraham Lincoln supposedly joked that he would find out what kind of liquor Grant liked and send a case to each of his other generals.
Well, Leon County has always had totally clean elections a€” zero defects in the recounts, readily certifiable results, relatively short lines, few if any complaints from candidates. Even in the post-presidential merriment of 2000, Ion Sancho's office stood out from the rest of Florida. So now Sancho is investigating allegations of drinking on primary night by some of his employees. Considering how well our elections have run, maybe he ought to find out what they were drinking and send a case to colleagues in some other counties. With the interviews to begin in FSU's athletic-director search, did you know that the first FSU AD was a woman? Montgomery entered Florida State College for Women, she found there was no provision for recreation for women students outside of a couple of tennis courts. Some said it was not quite ladylike for women to take physical education and was a hazard to the health of women to take violent exercises.
When FSCW became FSU and men were enrolled, a football team was organized, and of course a (male) coach was hired. Montgomery had a doctorate in physical education, and the coach had only a bachelor's degree, she still remained head of the department of physical education.
