Fairline Announces Squadron 41 Launch

by Jason Gorringe,, London

14 September 2009

Luxury motor yacht manufacturer Fairline Boats has unveiled plans for the much-anticipated Squadron 41, a 'unique flybridge motor yacht of ultimate luxury, spaciousness and performance – all within a remarkably compact hull length'.

Available from Summer 2010, the two en-suite, two-cabin boat is set to enter the 40-50 foot market and the company has already reported "strong forward orders with all of 2010 production retail sold."

Despite being the smallest in the Squadron range, Fairline notes that it is still "every inch a Squadron, carrying many of the design and technology advances pioneered in the larger models to offer a practical, user-friendly flybridge motor yacht for owners to relax and entertain guests."

“Featuring class-leading accommodation throughout, the Squadron 41 includes a light, airy saloon with full length windows and sumptuous furnishings, which leads to the large, light-filled galley. The expansive use of glazing throughout includes feature skylights in the forward full beam master cabin to flood light and give a spacious, airy feeling. The starboard guest cabin almost doubles in useable size when its double doors to en-suite are open. 'Floating' furniture increases the appearance of floor size throughout the cabins. The same sense of space and 'big boat' luxury is further enhanced by the extra large flybridge and the openness of the cockpit," noted Fairline in a statement.

The team, led by design director Adam Greenwood, worked hard to create a flybridge motor yacht that offers some of the largest accommodation areas on a boat of this size with every available space utilized and maximized to create the most spacious 40-foot Fairline yet.

“The Squadron 55, which was launched in the autumn of 2008, challenged every element of design and styling and we questioned the validity and efficiency of each component part of the boat. The resultant model won critical acclaim and awards and we have continued the same demanding schedule with the introduction of each subsequent Squadron. I believe that our latest offering, the Squadron 41, will certainly turn as many heads,” Greenwood said.

Key features to be unveiled on the Squadron 41 are to be incorporated in all future Squadrons, which will form a seven-boat flybridge line-up, ranging from 41 to 85 feet, Fairline informed.

The new features will include:

  • An expanded flybridge, larger than previously seen on boats of this size.
  • Large cockpit space with twin transom gates for easy access on either side of the cockpit seating.
  • Innovative, concealed tender launch option for Williams 285 Jet RIB to provide safe, clean and open transom.
  • In recognition of the needs of on-board entertaining, the galley is one of the largest yet seen on a Squadron as it utilizes space under the saloon floor, and will include two fridges – a key factor for the European market.
  • The master cabin with feature skylights and en-suite.
  • The introduction of a unique, open-plan guest and en-suite arrangement to create the most spacious guest accommodation yet.
  • Both en-suites will offer full stand-up showers.

Details of the Squadron 41 will be available at the Cannes International Boat & Yacht Show on September 9-14, the PSP Southampton Boat Show on September 11-20, the Genoa International Boat Show on October 3-11, or via authorized Fairline dealers throughout the world.
