Ahead of its presence at Boot Düsseldorf 2018, luxury British motor yacht manufacturer, Fairline Yachts, has released new information on their two new models, the F-Line 33 and Squadron 64 – both of which have been designed by Alberto Mancini and will launch at the show in 2019.
For those where size matters, Fairline’s new Squadron 64 combines grand proportions with a graceful profile. Built on the same Vripack wide chine hull of the Targa 63 GTO, the Squadron 64 features Alberto Mancini’s vision of bold lines, creating a handsome profile and an abundance of space. The saloon flows elegantly around an open and aft-facing galley, adding to the overall sense of light within the boat. The yacht has multiple flybridge, main deck and accommodation configurations with a layout suitable for every global boating territory. Available with three or four cabins and an optional twin-bed aft crew cabin, the boat is powered by a choice of twin Caterpillar C18 1150 diesel engines or twin MAN V8 1200 engines. Visitors to the Fairline booth in Düsseldorf will have the unique opportunity to explore the Squadron 64 in immersive virtual reality a year before its physical launch in 2019.
The new 33 draws on Fairline’s day boat heritage. With a large forward sun bed and a spacious aft seating area, configurable to another sun bed, the 33’s deck is made for summer time entertaining and its drop-down transom extends the usable space onboard. Despite its compact size, the F-Line 33 features Mancini’s luxurious styling cues. The entry-level model is available with twin Volvo D3-220 sterndrive engines or twin V8-300 engines.
This year’s Boot Düsseldorf sees the first Alberto Mancini-designed Fairline, the award-winning Targa 63 GTO, feature alongside a Targa 48 GT, Targa 48 Open and Squadron 53. The Targa 63 GTO has been nominated for the European Powerboat of the Year Award 2018 in the over 45ft category, the winner of which is announced at the Flagship Gala event held on the opening evening of Boot Düsseldorf.
