Fairline Yachts, which was formed less than six weeks ago, has ensured continuity of production to guarantee it completes all orders for boats received by the previous owners. Represented in Florida by G Marine and in Turkey by Karina, Fairline Yachts is showcasing some of its most popular boats at the respective events. Commenting on the worldwide distribution of the 50-year old brand, Miles Moorhouse of Fairline Yachts, says, “We are delighted to showcase some of our most popular boats at two key international boat shows this month, Miami and Eurasia. The new company, Fairline Yachts, is funded by two long term UK-based Russian investors, who are both highly experienced in managing and developing marine businesses and in the production of high technology products, IT and media services. Russell says, “I am delighted to have been appointed Managing Director for Fairline Yachts. The newly formed company will operate from its manufacturing facilities in Oundle, Northamptonshire.
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 Middle East will operate from new offices in Dubai, serving the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain and Oman.
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.
Both 53ft models incorporate new styling cues, whilst also upholding Fairline’s best design traditions. Fairline has chosen a shaft driven configuration for the new models to maximise the aft space available for optional configurations such as a crew cabin or gyroscopic stabilisation. The Miami Yacht and Brokerage Show will also see Fairline launch its fastest model yet to the US boating public.
Perfectly suited for the Miami boating scene, the Shadow S is based on the Targa 38’s new 2015 specification and packed with unique styling features befitting its sports ethos. 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.

We sent Charlie and his family VIP passes which he opened on his birthday and Steve Leeson, Regional Director for the Americas toured them around every boat at the show before treating them to drinks at the VIP lounge.

Only accessible by boat, Tawila is one of the North Red Sea islands found just under an hour from El Gouna, offering empty white sand shores and crystal clear water lagoons. Owners and their guests spent the day relaxing in the sunshine and basking in the heat on the exquisite island.
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.

Fairline owners invited their friends and families to take part in the event, with models in attendance ranging from the Targa 47 to the Targa 62 and Squadron 65. Later in the afternoon, the boats rafted up together, giving guests the choice of either relaxing in the sunshine or enjoying an action-packed day on the water.
The owners of a Squadron 58 attached a giant inflatable slide and climbing wall to the boat’s flybridge and ran a competition to see who could climb to the top the fastest.
The Fairline Chesapeake team will be on hand to answer any questions and guests will be able to enjoy a glass of Champagne on board. The Fairline Targa 48GT is powered by Volvo Penta IPS and has been a firm favourite with customers since her launch in January 2014.

With this explosive cruiser you certainly won’t need to make any effort to impress – the new Targa 38 Shadow S is impressive in every way! In her OPEN form, she provides pure convertible fun with the largest roof-opening area for a boat of this size.
The traditional single seat has been replaced with ultra-comfortable twin helm seats with plenty of space behind the wheel. The new marina is the perfect dwelling for a craft of this ilk, filled with the latest boating facilities including state-of-the-art jetties and an amazing travel lift (boat crane) with a 200-ton capacity!  The brand new hotel is the perfect destination for tourists and watersport lovers. Easily able to accommodate up to nine overnight passengers in total comfort, the cabins are amazingly spacious and beautifully appointed.
Relaxing in style while sipping Moet champagne and other refreshing drinks accompanied by delicious pre-made hot snacks and meals, was the perfect icebreaker in this idyllic setting.
Something that really struck them was the ongoing sense of freedom thanks to the amazing spaciousness of this craft. There are just so many other places in which to chill from the seclusion of the cabins to the huge, roomy cockpit and luxurious saloon.  Guests can comfortably enjoy being outdoors and closer to the water but not in it!


While the Fairline 65 is capable of extremely long distance travelling (fuel capacity of 3 542-liters) and thoughts of simply cruising into infinity did cross several minds - all too soon they were making their way back to Luanda. The weekend may have been over but memories of this fantastic Fairline Squadron 65 interlude will linger on well into the future. For more information about the whole Fairline range and other boats, contact Boating World. In typical Fairline style, there’s no skimping on attention-to-detail and like her siblings before her, the 48 is bursting with luxurious fittings and awesome power with every inch oozing Mediterranean style living. Take a look with us at this endlessly spacious option with her panoramic windows and free-flowing sociable areas both inside and out. When eyelids grow heavy, passengers can stretch out either on the large bow or cockpit sunpads for a snooze or to soak up some of the sun.
Not only does she look fantastic but her ride is solid and sure footed and she is highly responsive with exceptional turning ability. As expected there’s loads of storage space all over - under seating and in other areas.

Fairline have truly outdone themselves with this beautiful 50-footer which went on show in France earlier in 2012. Natural lighting floods the interior right through to the galley and everything that moves magically folds away or disappears completely - from the sleek sliding roof to the optional sliding panoramic side windows - further adding to the impression of expansiveness. 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. We have been focusing on completing existing orders to ensure no customer of Fairline Yachts from anywhere in the world loses confidence in our ability to provide them with their new boat.
On display at Miami has been the Targa 48 OPEN and the Targa 53GT, which saw its American debut at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. South Florida is one of the world’s largest leisure boating markets and we are pleased to continue our long-term relationship with G Marine in Miami. With nearly 30 years directly relevant experience, Russell has a very strong background in the luxury motor yacht industry. With the resources of the investors, coupled with the expert knowledge of the management team and our energy and passion for the brand, the structure is in place for a great future for Fairline Yachts.
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 first for Fairline is the option for marble worktops in the galley and heads, and achieving yet another first – being 10% lighter in weight than the equivalent length hand laid up Fairline boat. 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.
Alongside this, was the elegant Squadron 48 with its fresh and ingenious interior design ensuring there is plentiful space with a voluminous saloon and large relaxed seating areas to both port and starboard. 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. The new models follow the same strategy and benefit from the same state-of-the-art technologies and industry-leading production systems as the groundbreaking 48ft range.
Customers will also be able to choose the alternative of fin stabilisation to ensure the highest levels of comfort, allowing owners and guests to relax in style onboard. 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. We are looking forward to revealing the full plans for our new 53ft models, which extend our common platform approach, offering the flexibility and opportunities for customisation that are at the heart of Fairline’s new design philosophy. 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.
Details of this exciting new model are being kept closely under wraps until the Fairline Press Conference on the first day of the show. The Fairline team will be on hand to explain the new options and answer any questions that visitors might have. Launching to the world for the first time, designs for the new interiors will be displayed on the Fairline stand, with space dedicated to each of the four new colour themes: Capri, Hamptons, St Tropez and Amalfi.
The event is one of the main highlights of the year for the leisure marine industry and strengthens the UK’s position as a major destination for buyers of luxury yachts.
The popular Squadron Bar will once again be 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. Richard told us how Charlie loves spending time on the water on board their friend’s Fairline, as well as looking at pictures and videos of the Fairline range. We had such a fun day and I am really thankful to Fairline for taking the time to show us all around. The beautiful Red Sea coast of Egypt provides us with a great opportunity to hold such popular events and reach out to the Fairline community. 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.
Following successful European shows in Cannes and Southampton, visitors in the US will also be able to see the Squadron 65, the Squadron 50, the Squadron 42 and Targa 62 GRAN TURISMO. We are seeing consistently improving sales across the US and South America and we are committed to further developing the business and our dealer network throughout these regions.
Owners powered their elegant boats across the bay, with friends and families onboard, while the photographer took snaps from a helicopter circling above the bay. On-water activities included a wakeboarding school, wake surfing, flyboarding and paddleboarding. A hospitality boat provided refreshments throughout the day and a lunch of tapas for guests to enjoy together. We try to put on a varied calendar of events like these – last year we took nine Fairlines to the Barcelona Grand Prix, which was fantastic!
Guests are invited to experience the boat firsthand and explore the clever design touches that have proved so popular with Fairline’s discerning customers.
With intelligent space-saving innovations engineered throughout the boat, the Targa 48GT provides plenty of sociable spaces for relaxing in style. We are delighted to have the first Targa 48GT in the US, a boat that is perfectly suited to the thriving boating community of Annapolis. 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. It’s only fitting that our beautiful Targa 48GT should be set within one of the most prestigious resorts in Portugal.
Fairline Algarve remains committed to the Fairline brand and ethos and runs a very successful dealership, with a fantastic customer following. She studied travel and tourism before a complete career change saw her move into car rentals, chauffeur drives and sales assistance. This included a stint as a Property Administrator and she spent 2.5 years running her own events business.
Passengers will thoroughly enjoy the open-air feel with the wind blowing the hair back and sunshine on their faces. Burnt orange leather upholstery framed with woven carbon piping and orange lighting, stand out in perfect contrast to the graphite hardtop and navigation equipment and titanium coloured deck.
Friends and family can relax on the L-shaped seat alongside keeping company with the pilot. Considering nine guests and three crew members were to spend two days and a night together, there was never a restricted claustrophobic feeling. Needless to say, animated conversation, peppered with much laughter accompanied copious amounts of food and refreshments which bolstered the mood. The wide-open cockpit with helm station has plenty of seating for shooting the breeze around the cantilevered folding cockpit table which is cleverly stowed away under the sofa cushion.
She boasts two en-suite cabins with an impressive master suite midships with an optional sofa that converts into an additional bed.
There is also the option of turning the spacious leather lounger in the dinette into a third cabin if you need more sleeping accommodation.
Her love of watersport - as an open water scuba diver with a new found interest in sailing a€“ motivated her to apply for the receptionist position which opened up at Boating World. The bar area has been designed to handle Krug, Canard Duchene champagne, Laurent Perrier, and other drinks expected in a luxury environment.
Every year The Festival de la Plaisance de Cannes, otherwise known as the Cannes Boat Show, offers boat-lovers the opportunity to preview some of the finest yachts afloat. What kind of leather do you want, the bar size, swimming pool, Jacuzzi, do you want exotic leathers for the yacht? 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. A quick manoeuvre of the tophinged window opens up the galley and saloon into the cockpit area, and voila - Al Fresco dining on-the-water becomes a reality. Bringing the outside in with her retractable roof and open-plan layout, the relaxed, open atmosphere allows the host and his guests the pleasure of being together on the water in style. And arguably best of all, the chefs will still feel part of the action in this airy, light-filled area adjoining the saloon which flows into the cockpit. 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. The Fairline dealer network is one of our key strengths, and G Marine one of the jewels in our crown. A Fairline dealer since 1998, Russell is CEO of Fairline North Mallorca, where he has achieved over £90million of sales. We will focus on creating high quality luxury motor yachts that boaters will want to own and dealers will want to sell. 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. Similarly, the progressive styling of the Shadow S has helped us push the boundaries of people’s expectations of Fairline. Fairline owners and visitors can also enjoy a glass of bubbly or a cup of excellent coffee in the main hospitality area, where Fairline staff will be on hand to welcome visitors. 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. He said Charlie could not wait until the day he can get his own boat and that a chance to get on board would be a dream for him. The PSP Southampton Boat Show is another important highlight of the boating calendar for Fairline and a show we are committed to supporting. Her years of experience with people from all walks of life are an invaluable asset in her position. The spacious cockpit is ideal for entertaining especially with the new bar unit (griddle, sink and fridge) and an optional fold-out table.
If it gets too hot, a standard, electrically powered canvas roof overhead keeps the area shaded and airy. The scissors-style single beds in the forward VIP cabin can be drawn together to form a double bed.
Facing the galley is the deck saloon dining seating area with a width and height adjustable table which is great for meal times, or even setting up board games.
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. Similarly, Karina is an outstanding Fairline partner who consistently demonstrate their pride in representing the Fairline brand right across the Turkish market.
Prior to his role at Fairline North Mallorca, Russell was Engineering Director at Sunseeker International’s factory team based at Mallorca, and was Chief Test Engineer at Princess Yachts International before that.
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. Below decks, even the galley has been extended to make preparation easier and more comfortable.
A dash filled with state-of-the-art engine instrumentation leaves you in no doubt about the adequate control centre – this one beams an endless list of electronics equipment and gadgets. The Concept Cinema caused quite a stir and was a very popular feature of the stand throughout the show. The appointment of Russell ensures continuity of senior management at Fairline Yachts and safeguards close customer and boat dealer relations under the new ownership structure. This area sports a new leather steering wheel and stunning carbon-fibre inserts for a very upmarket appearance. If you have a crowd of people to entertain, guests can relax under the open roof in the saloon – sinking into plush seating while taking in the beautiful Oak satin timber appointments. If by chance the fresh air becomes too crisp, the guests can choose to close the roof and enjoy the air conditioning. Incidentally, if you want to create even greater ambience for a special romantic evening - white mood lighting to the main saloon, galley and cabins is available as an option.
Another six passengers can be accommodated in the teak-laid, self-draining, aft cockpit, where the seating has a specially adjustable, rotating backrest. Will you need access to a location with a beam, draft or will you face height restrictions?
