New Model: Fairline 60 Squadron

Fairline presents the new 60 Squadron, a further evolution of the 55 model presented in 2008, which became a 58 in 2011.   This model must have been one of the most evolutionized Fairline ever.  Nontheless the new 60 Squadron now measuring 63 feet over all, has some important changes which occur in the transom area.  That is a big new extended bathing platform, increased aft deck space, and a passarelle which can be ordered to be telescopic and invisible when not in use.  This last a feature not much to be found in yachts of this size, and with a high low bathing platform choice.  Inside Fairline keeps its very much appreciated layout of the very welcoming and comfortable split level main deck, and a lower cabin area having one of the most spacious full beam owners room in the category.  Power is from twin Volvo 800 or 900hp engines.  Speed numbers are not yet announced but I would imagine similar 32 knots speed with the big 900 units as the 58.
