Fairline Yachts has released the first design image of a brand new Fairline F-Line series of day boats, starting with a 33ft model.

Unlike the similarly sized Targa boats of the 80s and 90s, the new model is an unashamedly open design that majors on deck space with just a small open-plan cabin providing overnight accommodation.

Designed by Italian Alberto Mancini, the first rendering shows a sleek open boat with a reverse sheer transom that apparently folds down to create a beach club.

Forward, an expansive foredeck sunbathing area tops the open plan cabin, which features slim wrap-around windows. Article continues below…

A single sterndrive engine helps peg the price of entry to just over £252,000 inc UK VAT with twin diesels offered as an upgrade or twin petrols for the ultimate in performance.

Fairline promises ‘hand crafted details and robust seakeeping’, saying that the new boat ‘clearly draws on Fairline’s core DNA but with a very modern twist’.

Launched to its dealers at the recent dealer meeting in Cannes, Fairline claims that over a dozen dealer orders have already been taken for this radical new concept that launches in early 2019.

Andrew Pope, head of design at Fairline Yachts, says: “Inspired by our long heritage in designing and building sub-40ft yachts, we are pleased to make public our first, exciting, compact day boat which will further broaden the appeal of the Fairline brand.

“This stylish day boat embraces outdoor living and will feature an expansive foredeck sunbathing area, open-plan forward cabin and innovative fold down transom.

“The wrap around windows offer a light and airy feel and handcrafted details add luxury.”
