Out-News = Fairline On the Rocks in Black Sea

A Fairline Squadron 58 ended on the rocks in Cape Takil, on the Northern part of the Black Sea in Ukraine Crimea area on the 7th September.  The boat is reported to have hull damage and was taking on water aft.  Cape Takil is located on the Northern part of the black sea just before the entrance to the Sea of Azov.  No information on how the accident happened.
The Squadron 58 was a huge hit for well known British boat builder Fairline selling in just over two hundred units for a production which lasted six years from 2003 up to 2009. Little modifications have been made to the Squadron 58 with the most noticeable being the hull windows shape change in late 2006 from eye to square, and wood finish options inside beyond cherry wood in the last two years.  The Squadron 58 featured a three double cabins interior with a crew cabin, and was standard powered by twin Volvo 715hp, and or optional 775hp or Cat 800hp engines.  Top speed was up to 32 knots.
