Simpson Marine handed over a new-edition Fairline Squadron 68 to its owners following the model’s Asia premiere at TYS Pattaya, where the regional dealer had an impressive nine-yacht, multi-brand showcase.
The delivery to the owners was described as “a special celebration for friends and family” and included a scenic cruise around islands near Pattaya. The yacht is berthed at Ocean Marina Yacht Club and her owners plan to use her at weekends and explore the Gulf of Thailand and further afield.
The 2022 version includes a new hard top and sunroof
Following the arrival of the first unit into Asia, Simpson Marine has secured another hull of the British builder’s impressive new flagship that’s scheduled to arrive in October 2022.
Fairline debuted the original Squadron 68 in 2019 before launching a revised version earlier this year. Changes include a redesigned exterior with newly styled topsides and a new hard top now better integrated into the flybridge moulding, while the former slatted sunroof has been replaced by a fully retractable canvas version.

A side door has been added on the starboard side deck, which improves ventilation and deck access for the skipper. Interior changes include more volume, natural light and improved design and décor, while other key features include a 500kg-capacity high-low bathing platform that can carry a Williams SportJet 345 as a tender.
