Fairline announces recruitment drive following boat show success

Luxury British boatbuilder, Fairline Yachts, announces it is recruiting for 20 vacancies at its factory in Oundle, Northamptonshire, following phenomenal success at the recent Cannes and Southampton Boat Shows in September.

Workers are being recruited for a variety of roles including engineers, carpenters, CNC operatives and stage 1 fitters. New recruits will be taken on at Fairline’s Oundle base in order to fulfil the company’s growing order book for 2017 and beyond.

The new members of the Fairline team will help to support both the introduction of new models to the company’s range – which includes the brand new Targa 63 GTO, launching in Summer 2017 and the Squadron 53, set to be unveiled in January.

Russell Currie, Fairline’s Managing Director, says, “This is an exciting time for Fairline Yachts. Hot on the heels of two very successful international boat shows – Cannes and Southampton – where customer deposits were received for boats from across our range, we are now preparing to exhibit at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in Florida next month. Our forward order book for next year and beyond is looking very robust. This success is thanks to outstanding product designs, a skilled workforce and a committed global dealer network. We are delivering on our promise to build boats that customers want to own and dealers want to sell, and I am pleased to say that we have reached the point where we now need to grow our team further so that we can continue to do so.”

Fairline is looking to fill the positions immediately and the appointments will take the total employee head count to almost 250.
