British luxury boat manufacturer, Fairline Yachts, announces the third variant from its popular 53ft range, the Squadron 53, will have its US debut in the New Boat section on Collins Avenue at Yachts Miami Beach on 16 February 2017, berths A03-A06.
Alongside the US debut of the Squadron 53, Fairline will launch a limited edition 50th anniversary commemorative book together with an immersive virtual reality experience bringing to life its highly anticipated Targa 63GTO. Furthermore, Fairline’s ever-popular models including the Targa 48 OPEN, Squadron 48 and the Targa 53GT, will also be on show.
Renowned superyacht designer, Alberto Mancini, has added his design expertise to Fairline’s new Squadron 53. The boat is based on the existing 53ft hull but features a new design from the deck upwards courtesy of Mancini, showcasing the future direction of Fairline’s exterior styling.
Mancini’s design has resulted in a spacious main deck with a flat floor from the cockpit to the lower helm, which in turn ensures a flat ceiling in the master cabin offering a generous 6ft 4in headroom at the foot of the large double bed, adding to the overall sense of space in this expansive 55ft 6in (16.92m)-long cruiser. The clever layout configurations provide owners with complete flexibility, including three or four cabins and multiple galley arrangements including the main deck, forward or aft locations or below deck, as well as the new addition of foredeck seating.
Hand crafted to order by Fairline’s highly experienced and dedicated craftsmen in Oundle, England, the new Squadron 53 offers luxury boaters total command and control thanks to its striking swept flybridge, whilst exuding style and offering great entertaining spaces onboard. Fairline’s approach, from superior engineering and multiple layout options, to small details that delight, makes the Squadron 53 the perfect choice for those who want their yacht their way.
Andrew Pope, Head of Design at Fairline, says, “Owners will feel in total command and control on the fantastic flybridge of the new Fairline Squadron 53, a yacht that offers excellent sea-keeping in all conditions. At the same time, the space, style and sumptuousness of this luxury cruiser means that guests will also have the ride of their lives. The Squadron 53 is the first Fairline yacht to have touches of Italian design and features subtle Mancini influences, which have evolved Fairline’s time-proven design DNA to create a model that perfectly blends beauty, form and function. With the Squadron 53, owners receive unrivalled flexibility in layout and complete comfort and luxury in its construction and features.”
In addition to the Squadron 53, Fairline’s impressive line-up of boats on show at Yachts Miami Beach 2017 include:
