2018 Fairline Squadron 65

This 65-foot Squadron appears to go one step further than similar sized boats on every level.

Sumptuous furnishings and hand-worked cabinetry are hallmarks of the Squadron range. Nowhere is it more elegantly expressed than in the long, wide single-level interior - a testament to the 65’s ingenious flat floor design. Having such uncomplicated, single floor levels is normally reserved for much larger yachts, but our designers have achieved just that on this 65-footer. An elegant, beautifully proportioned Squadron awaits you.

2018 Fairline Targa 43 OPEN

2018 Fairline Targa 43 OPEN

Reimagined, reborn and perfectly formed.

Back in 1997, the original Targa 43 took the Mediterranean by storm, redefining the design principles of a performance yacht by imbuing it with a distinctive touch of glamour. Twenty years later, its spirit has returned in the form of the Targa 43 OPEN, and thanks to the extraordinary vision of superyacht designer Alberto Mancini.

Sporting a low profile on the outside with all the sleek lines expected from a performance yacht of this calibre, the Targa 43 OPEN is pure design luxury on the inside. All interior spaces on the main and lower decks are exquisitely designed with touches normally reserved for larger yachts. Cabins are spacious with a choice of two configurations - the main cabin can either be located forward or mid-ship.

2015 Fairline Targa 38

Since its launch, the Targa 38 has been one of the fastest selling models in the Fairline range. Sleek and powerful, this is a truly infectious sports cruiser that handles beautifully.

The swept-back radar arch and flowing lines of the hull and superstructure hint at the true personality of this 38-footer, where power and beauty are delivered in one well-considered package. The 360° panoramic view from the saloon and the striking vertical hull windows that let light pour in also suggest that this compact Targa believes itself to be a much larger boat.

2015 Fairline Targa 38 Open

For many this hard top is one of the most eagerly awaited Fairlines to date. Specify the D6-400 Volvo engines and you will also have the fastest Fairline built to date. Even fully loaded it can easily push into the mid-40 knot range.

Demand for a hard top version was too great for us not to take it seriously. But we had to get it right. We worked with Makefast to acquire a tried and tested roof and electrical system. Reliable, easy to use and neat. The Targa 38OPEN offers the largest roof opening area for a boat of this size and a long overhang over the cockpit to offer maximum protection.

We also extended the glazing to give greater all-round vision and further enhance the feeling of an express cruiser that’s open to the world around it. This big boat thinking also extends aft, where you can specify a submersible bathing platform for ultimate enjoyment of the water.

2015 Fairline Squadron 42

Since its founding in the 1960s, Fairline has built over 13,000 boats. For the Squadron 42, the Fairlane design team provided the layout and details, while the engineering and naval architecture came from the design firm Bernarad Olesinski — Naval Architects, known for their outstanding design work in the rarified world of megayachts. Overall, Fairlane’s Squadron 42 is just that: 42 feet of megayacht. The smallest of the Squadron series, the Squadron 42 can accommodate up to six persons in an environment that reminds you of nothing so much as a very plush, airy loft that can zip along at up to 30 knots.
