Web: Fairline New Web Site

Fairline one of Britain's most renowned and respected pleasure boat builders presents a new World web showroom. The story of Fairline starts in 1963 when Jack Newington purchases unused gravel pits by the river Nene and transforms them into Oundle marina. Four year later to this in 1967 the first Fairline 19 feet river cruiser is produced in fiberglass. Seven years after the first boat is built the 32 Phantom is produced which is followed in 1977 by the 40. The 40 will be the longest ever produced Fairline in time model making eleven years of production till the final Mk.IV version. In 1981 Fairline produces another hot model the Bernard Olesinski designed 36 Turbo, an aft cabin cruiser which will be a huge success thanks to its sea keeping and huge comfort aboard. This model will also mark the cooperation with the today Isle of Man residing naval architect which continued till 2012, who for those thirty years plus he designed all new Fairline models. 1985 marks one of the most important evolution of Fairline, the launch of the 33 Targa, a name which since the nineties represents all the sports series within the brand. After knocking on the yacht world in 1986 with the 50, Fairline presented the 62 Squadron in 1991, a huge statement for the over fifty feet yacht and a name which later on will represent all the big models from the famed British producer. In 2001 Fairline expands to a new 60,000 square foot facility completed two years later, the year 2003 Fairline also does two important milestones; the launch of it's ten thousand boat a 65 Squadron, and the presentation of a new flagship the 74 Squadron, which in 2007 evolved as the 78. In 2004 Fairline presents the new Gran Turismo hard top version of its Targa series, with the launch of the at the time flagship of this range the 62. By 2012 Fariline had build over 12000 boats this number reached in 2010 with the delivery of a 55 Squadron, and received various awards in many years from the Queen for Export in 2008, and European boat of the Year with the 38 Targa, and IPC Motorboat of the Year for the 68 Squadron in the same period.  In January 2016 and following financial difficulties in 2015 Fairline is bought by two Russian owners and Russell Currie handed managing director duties.  Since then the British brand is reinventing itself for the current tight and competitive market, first giving design duties to Italian Alessandro Mancini, and more recently in early 2018 acquiring a new sea side facility in Southampton.  Fairline current range features eleven models into three series; F-Line, Targa, and Squadron, which start at 33 feet and go up to 65 feet. The current entry level Fairline model is the still in project 33 F-Line, with the flagship being the 65 Squadron Custom, which is due for a replacement with the upcoming 64.
