Fairline Yachts, celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, is adding a 17,000-square-foot production facility at Oundle Marina in Britain — the yard’s original location when Fairline launched its first hull a half-century ago.
The expansion is expected to help Fairline fulfill increased demand for boats, as well as to improve the existing product line.
Fairline brought in new management about a year ago. The builder, which employs 250 people, has launched two models under the new management (the Targa 53 Open and the Squadron 53); has updated interiors across the 48-foot model range; and has added a hardtop option and new interior to the Squadron 65.
What’s next for Fairline Yachts? Look for a new Targa 43 Open and Targa 63 GTO, both created in collaboration with Italian designer Alberto Mancini.
