Improve-it = Fairline 78 Squardon Custom

Fairline recently presented an important update to the 78 Squadron Custom now available with an integrated fixed flybridge hard top surrounding an electric retractable canvas roof. The new roof brings a permanent structure to the already commanding flybridge, with large sunbathing area and plenty of space for open-air entertaining. The new hard top model recently concluded sea trials at Fairline's test facility in Ipswich. The first boat has already been handed over to her new owner and the second left the test facility last week. Fairline celebrated the launch of the one hundred 78 Squadron  model earlier this year at the London boat show. The original eleven year old flagship was first unveiled to the world in 2003 first as 74 Squadron, at a prestigious event near the Tower of London. The model was in 2007 updated as the 78 Squadron Custom, here the most visible change being extended up and down moving bathing platform, but more importantly a full customization set, this move increasing the success of the model twice fold. Since then the 78 Squadron Custom has become one of Fairline’s most successful and iconic motor yachts with a very loyal following. Since the custom move the 78 Squadron have received over ten thousand individual customization's, with some being very much an important change as the addition of fin stabilizers on some models.
