Fairline's new flybridge makes its UK premiere

Fairline made a splash at the PSP Southampton Boat Show with the launch of the Squadron 42.

The smallest Fairline in the range drew a big crowd to the floating pontoons at Mayflower Park.

Fairline MD Derek Carter said the boat, which will replace the popular Phantom 40, is “every inch a Squadron” but that it delivers all the luxury associated with this range at a more affordable price.

The Squadron 42, which starts at £314,200 excluding taxes, marks the beginning of a raft of new models for Fairline, including the Squadron 50 and Targa 50, due to be launched within the next year.

Check out how we rated the new Squadron 42 in the up-and-coming October issue of Motor Boats Monthly, on shelves Thursday 16 September.
