New Model: Fairline 58 Squadron

Presented officially the past January at the London show, the new Fairline 58 Squadron is an evolution of the 55 of the same range presented in the fall of 2008. Being extended in length the 58 Squadron evolution centers on the outside with recognizable items being a larger aft deck, new hull side windows especially those in the owners full beam cabin, more spacious crew cabin aft with large aft view window, and the added feature of Fairline's patented Tender Launch System as presented for the first time in January 2010 on the 58 Targa GT. Another not seen feature is also the extension of the hull by near to two feet aft, which benefit in performance and for giving lower planning speeds. For the rest this model builds on the features of the 2008 55 Squadron with a three double cabin interior plan; sleeping six, owners full beam stateroom, and the choice of an optional single crew cabin aft. Power is twin Volvo and Cat engine choices, from 800 up to 900hp.
