Fairline offers beach club on all-new Squadron 58
The British builder is offering drop-down wings on its new Squadron 58, which is set to hit the water by late 2022.
The Squadron 58 will join the 50 and 68 in Fairline’s flybridge range
Fairline is developing a new Squadron 58 that offers the option of a beach club with hydraulic drop-down sides. Designed by the Fairline Yachts Design Studio in collaboration with Salt Design, the three-cabin model is scheduled to be in the water by late 2020 in time for a world premiere at Boot Dusseldorf in January 2023.
Last month, Fairline announced its new Phantom 65, which is set to debut at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival in September and will pioneer a new sportbridge range between the Targa cruisers and Squadron flybridge models. Meanwhile, the new Squadron 58 will fill the gap between the Squadron 50 and flagship 68, which has recently been upgraded, with a unit heading to Hong Kong through Simpson Marine, whose representation in Asia was recently expanded to include mainland China.
Paul Grys, CEO of Fairline, said: “Having recently announced the launch of the Phantom 65 alongside multiple new dealer appointments around the world, the Squadron 58 comes at an exciting time for Fairline, with it marking a major step in our new model development programme. We have designed this yacht to offer our customers the ultimate connection with the water utilising a range of new innovations and technologies unique to Fairline.”
The beach club has drop-down sides, an extendable platform and modular furniture
The Squadron 58’s optional fold-down bulwarks on both sides is a first for Fairline, while other new features include a high/low bathing platform that can carry a tender, extend in length and submerge into the water, allowing space for sun loungers. The beach club includes a glass transom, flexible and modular cockpit seating, moveable bar stools and an integrated sound system, while the triple-fin styling detail into the aft superstructure recalls past Squadrons.
The flybridge features a spacious sun pad aft, wet bar, plenty of seating, a hardtop with sunroof and wrap-around glazing, while the foredeck has a sofa, table and large sunpad. In another first for Fairline, the saloon is entered by an angled door, has an aft galley to port and a forward lounge with a C-shaped sofa and a table to port facing a double sofa to starboard.
The lower deck has a master cabin midships with a king-sized bed, bureau with stool and drawer storage to starboard, and a large sofa to port, while the starboard guest cabin shares the forward VIP cabin’s en-suite bathroom. At the stern, customers can add a twin crew cabin, which is accessed through a door in the transom, while engine options are twin Volvo D13-900 or D13-1000 shaft-drive engines. The Squadron 58 starts from £1.2 million (about US$1.63 million) excluding taxes.
Fairline has again expanded Simpson Marine’s remit in Asia, with the region’s largest yacht dealership also representing the British motor yacht builder in mainland China.
