Fairline unveils new F//Line 33 layout
The British builder is offering an alternative main-deck layout and new features on its F//Line 33, its smallest, fastest yacht.

The Fairline F//Line 33 is now available with an alternative main-deck layout, which simultaneously provides both sunbathing and seating options, and a larger helm. Other new options include a sleek hardtop and a below-deck galley with an electric hob and sink. All are available on the F//Line configurator.
The new cockpit features C-shaped seating to starboard, with the aft backrest doubling up as a headrest for the two-person sunbed. The cockpit comfortably seats up to six people around a fixed-height teak-top table. There is also an optional cantilever pedestal, which neatly stows the table behind the seat cushions when not in use.

A wet bar to port includes a fitted sink and folding tap as standard, which can be upgraded to include a fridge and electric griddle, with a drawer icemaker in the seat base opposite. A more spacious helm allows for up to two 12in Garmin touchscreen displays.
Peter McNulty, Fairline’s COO, said: “Having taken onboard feedback from customers to further improve upon this category-defining weekender, with this practical new layout we have answered every question asked of us, while still retaining the F//Line’s exhilarating performance and award-winning pedigree. Flexible options such as the below-deck galley and stylish hardtop ensure owners can configure the F//Line 33 to perfectly suit how they go boating.”
The first model in the F//Line range, the 33-footer has been highly praised for its design and impressive performance, achieving speeds of 48 knots with twin Volvo Penta V8 430hp petrol engines. Furthermore, there’s below-deck accommodation for four in a midships cabin and a forward dinette that can be converted to a double bed.
A collaboration between Fairline and Italian designer Alberto Mancini, the F//Line 33 had its world premiere at the 2019 Cannes Yachting Festival, while an outboards version was revealed at Boot Dusseldorf in January 2020. Regional dealer Simpson Marine ordered the first F/Line 33 in Asia, which is now in Thailand.
The Squadron 50 sits in the ‘sweet spot’ of Fairline’s increasingly wide range, with the quick sale of the first unit in Hong Kong showing the potential of the British builder’s expanded regional partnership with Simpson Marine.
