  • Fairline Targa 48 Gran Turismo

    Fairline Targa 48 Gran Turismo                  With a new focus on engineering and design, Fairline is looking for Australian buyers – and this particular Targa 48 Gran Turismo is ready to go Spotlight Established in 1967 and having recently celebrated its 50th anniversary, Fairline Yachts has a reputation for innovation and excellence. The UK-based company has been building family and sports cruisers for almost 40 years of its history, embarking on the build of even larger craft in the early 1990s. It’s these craft that effectively cemented the brand’s global reputation, a reputation that has just entered a new stage of its evolution with the arrival of celebrated Italian designer Alberto Mancini and Dutch naval architects and superyacht specialist, Vripack, into the Fairline fold. Fairline’s first Targa was launch in 1985. That boat, the Targa 33 set a benchmark for the modern express cruiser and helped establish the brand in markets outside of Europe. Much more recently, Fairline launched the 48 Series in 2014. The innovative design incorporated both resin-infusion technology and a new monocoque deck construction, as well as a unique hull, designed exclusively for Volvo’s IPS pod-drive technology. The Targa 48 Open has been one of Fairline’s most popular models. And now the company has released an updated version of the Targa 48 Gran Turismo (GT). …

  • Fairline lifts lid on Esprit concept boat at ExCeL

    Fairline lifts lid on Esprit concept boat at ExCeL    New concept Fairline Esprit is a hybrid-powered 30ft sportsboat designed with sustainability in mind Fairline has taken a leaf out of the automotive book and has turned up to the London Boat Show with an exciting concept design. The Fairline Esprit is a 30ft hybrid sportsboat that comes in cuddy cabin and bowrider forms and is designed to whip along at 30 knots from a single sterndriven 400hp diesel or motor silently at 5 knots under electric power. Sustainability was a key driving force behind the design, according to Fairline, which proposes using bio-derived epoxy resins in the construction and recycled synthetic composite teak for the decks. Resin infusion will keep things light to maximise performance and economy while LED lights throughout will keep power draw to a minimum. On the bowlder version, Fairline has designed a solar T-top that can fold away to cover the bow seating when not in use, the panels being used to power the ultrasonic antifouling system and keep batteries charged. One of the most exciting elements of the new design, and one which we hope to see on future boats, is a chartplotter and system information display built into the central boss of the steering wheel. This could show the radar display, the autopilot, charts or how much fuel is in the tanks. Fairline even said it hadn’t ruled out flappy paddle controls. As with most car …
