Visitors to the stand will be able to experience three of Fairline’s most popular boats, including the new Squadron 65 hardtop, the Targa 53GT – which was launched to international acclaim at last year’s Southampton Boat Show – and the perennially popular Targa 48 OPEN.

Russell Currie, Managing Director at Fairline Yachts, says, “Following the success of the optional hardtop for the Squadron 78, together with feedback from our international customer and dealer network, we are pleased to be able to now offer this wonderful addition to the Squadron 65, which can be experienced for the first time at this year’s Cannes Yachting Show. Cannes remains a very important boat show in the annual calendar for Fairline. We are looking forward to showcasing a selection of our most popular boats and meeting both new and old customers alike.”

 Squadron 65 Hard Top

The attractively proportioned Fairline Squadron 65 is now available with a factory fitted hardtop. The stunning hardtop contains a canvas, sliding sunroof and adjustable mood lighting.

Sumptuous furnishings and hand-worked cabinetry are classic hallmarks of Fairline’s Squadron range and 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 the reserve of much larger yachts, but Fairline’s designers have achieved it on this 65-footer.


The huge flybridge provides ample space with three distinct social areas – a forward cruising chaise longue and sun pad, aft facing sunbeds and a seating/dining area, offering a truly relaxing lounge area to enjoy. The Squadron 65’s free-flowing saloon area allows guests to interact freely and with the galley positioned at the heart of the yacht, socialising is easy. The master cabin enjoys a spacious, open plan ensuite and there is the option of either three additional cabins and three ensuites or a three cabin, three ensuite with day head or utility area.

Targa 53GT

Fairline’s newest express cruiser, the Targa 53GT, was unveiled at last year’s Southampton Boat Show, and represents not just a new model but an entirely new concept, which sets the standard in choice and personalisation. fairline-targa-53gt-luxury-james


Hand crafted to order by Fairline’s highly experienced and dedicated British craftsmen, the Targa 53GT allows customers to design and purchase something that is truly their boat.

Recognised for nearly 50 years as guardians of British ingenuity and engineering of the ‘Boater’s Boat’, Fairline has attended to every detail – from the unrivalled performance, proven sea-keeping, and the exceptional quality of every aspect of on board space, facilities and features. The Targa 53GT redefines the 50 foot boating experience, providing outstanding quality in design and performance for the uncompromising end-user.

 Targa 48 OPEN

The Targa 48 OPEN is one of the most exciting sports cruisers on the water and the first to feature Fairline’s sumptuous new interiors scheme. A beautifully appointed two cabin, double en-suite model, the Targa 48 OPEN embraces the design trend of spacious sociable areas – both inside and out. The model also features an electric canvas roof as standard, as well as a garage for a jet tender and the option of a submersible platform. The Targa 48 OPEN offers exceptional performance and manoeuvrability thanks to its Volvo Penta IPS with joystick control.


Fairline’s prestigious international network of dealers will be represented on the Fairline stand throughout the Cannes Yachting Show, together with key personnel from Fairline’s design and manufacturing teams to provide visitors with in-depth information about the company and its ranges going into the 2017 season.
