British luxury motor yacht manufacturer, Fairline Yachts, is celebrating the start of the boat show season in style, as it showcases an impressive line-up of Squadron and Targa models at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival, including the world debut of the new Squadron 65 hardtop.
Visitors to the stand will be able to experience three of Fairline’s most popular boats, including the new Squadron 65 hardtop, the Targa 53GT – which was launched to international acclaim at last year’s Southampton Boat Show – and the ever popular Targa 48 OPEN.
Russell Currie, Managing Director at Fairline Yachts, says, “Following the success of the Hardtop option on the Squadron 78, together with feedback from our customers and international dealer network, we are pleased to now offer this useful addition to the Squadron 65, which can be experienced for the first time at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival. Cannes remains a very important show in the annual calendar for Fairline and we look forward to showcasing a selection of our most popular models and meeting customers current and future alike.”

Squadron 65 Hard Top
The attractively proportioned Fairline Squadron 65 is now available with a factory fitted hardtop. The sleek hardtop contains a canvas, sliding sunroof and adjustable mood lighting.
Sumptuous furnishings and hand-worked cabinetry are classic hallmarks of Fairline’s Squadron range and nowhere is it more elegantly expressed than in the long, wide single-level interior – a testament to the 65’s ingenious flat floor design.
The huge flybridge provides ample space with three distinct social areas – a forward cruising chaise longue and sun pad, aft facing sunbeds and a seating/dining area, offering a truly relaxing lounge area to enjoy. The Squadron 65’s free-flowing saloon area allows guests to interact freely and with the galley positioned at the heart of the yacht, socialising is easy. The master cabin enjoys a spacious, open plan ensuite and there is the option of either three additional cabins and three ensuites or a three cabin, three ensuite with day head or utility area.
Fairline’s newest express cruiser, the Targa 53GT, was unveiled at last year’s Southampton Boat Show, and represents not just a new model but an entirely new concept, which sets the standard in choice and personalisation.
Hand crafted to order by Fairline’s highly experienced and dedicated British craftsmen, the Targa 53GT allows customers to design and purchase something that is truly their boat.
Recognised for nearly 50 years as guardians of British ingenuity and engineering of the ‘Boater’s Boat’, Fairline has attended to every detail – from the unrivalled performance, proven sea-keeping, and the exceptional quality of every aspect of on board space, facilities and features. The Targa 53GT redefines the 50 foot boating experience, providing outstanding quality in design and performance.
Targa 48 OPEN
The Targa 48 OPEN is one of the most exciting sports cruisers on the water and the first to feature Fairline’s sumptuous new interiors scheme. A beautifully appointed two cabin, double en-suite model, the Targa 48 OPEN embraces the design trend of spacious sociable areas – both inside and out. The model also features an electric canvas roof as standard, as well as a garage for a jet tender and the option of a submersible platform. The Targa 48 OPEN offers exceptional performance and manoeuvrability thanks to its IPS joystick control and 2017 sees performance increasing further with the introduction of the Volvo Penta IPS700 engine option.
Fairline’s prestigious international network of dealers will be represented on the Fairline stand throughout the Cannes Yachting Show, together with key personnel from Fairline’s design and manufacturing teams to provide visitors with in-depth information about the company and its ranges going into the 2017 season.
