While the three-cabin layout (plus crew) is delightful, I found the really impressive stuff under the skin. Take the electrical system, for example. Most owners endure this part of their boat, never quite sure why something goes “zap” at the wrong moment. Fairline, however, has created Pilot, a comprehensive system so user-friendly you don’t need an electrical engineering degree. The heart of Pilot is a touchscreen at the helm that manages literally everything. One switch turns the power system on, and a PC-based computer decides which systems you need immediately. One switch turns the system off, and, once again, the computer decides which systems — such as bilge pumps — should be overlooked.
