Last spring, the last Squadron 65 left the Fairline Yachts Ipswich factory. This made way for the new Squadron 68, the first of which is already under construction at Fairline's new manufacturing facility in Hythe, Southampton.
Bigger and Better
Featuring the Italian design of Alberto Mancini and engineering from Vripack, the Squadron 68 blends 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 Squadron 68 offers 12% more lower deck accommodation space, a 5% larger main deck saloon area and a 10% bigger flybridge than the outgoing Squadron 65.
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.
The Squadron 68 is also available with three cabins and a day head or four cabin layouts.
"Our Squadron range has always aimed to provide owners with the ultimate luxury escape and we're confident the new Squadron 68 delivers this,” said David Tydeman, Executive Chairman at Fairline Yachts. “It is our most sophisticated model yet and we're sure our customers around the world will love the irresistible blend of ultra-modern design from Alberto Mancini and the sumptuous onboard environment."
