March saw the last ever Squadron 65 leave the Fairline Yachts Ipswich factory, making way for the new Squadron 68, the first of which are already under construction at Fairline’s new manufacturing facility in Hythe, Southampton.
Featuring the award-winning Italian design of Alberto Mancini, the Squadron 68 is effortlessly chic, blending luxury design and a well-considered layout with Fairline’s celebrated build quality and seakeeping ability. Initially called the Squadron 64, the new spacious flybridge model has been renamed to reflect its grand proportions.
The addition of a 2.5ft extension to the Squadron 68’s bathing platform provides greater space for jet skis, jet tender or sun loungers, perfect for creating a beach-club style environment that closely connects you to the water. The yacht offers an expansive main deck galley as well as the newly designed option of an extended VIP forward cabin, offering the additional benefit of a vanity unit and even greater storage space.
David Tydeman, executive chairman at Fairline Yachts, said: “Our Squadron range has always aimed to provide owners with the ultimate luxury escape and we are confident the new Squadron 68 delivers this. It is our most sophisticated model yet and we are sure our customers around the world will love the irresistible blend of ultra-modern design from Alberto Mancini and the sumptuous on board environment.”
