In profile, Fairline‘s Squadron 53 appears as if she’s moving.

Penned by Italian yacht designer, Alberto Mancini, the Squadron 53’s fine entry is complemented by a straight sheerline, which accents the yacht’s aggressive appearance. Her look finished off by a raked front windshield and sweeping superstructure that rolls back over the salon like a furrowed brow, seemingly daring the sea to come at her.

There are multiple main-deck layouts for 53 Squadron. For instance, that L-shaped seating to port can be configured as a galley. Note the use of glass to bathe the salon in light. Courtesy Fairline

For the cruising family, the Squadron 53 is available in three- or four-stateroom configurations. In all setups, the master is full-beam amidships with a forepeak VIP and guest stateroom with side-by-side berths abaft and to port of the VIP. There is also a galley-down across from the guest stateroom. In the four-stateroom scenario, the galley-down is eliminated and positioned on the main deck.


In the main-deck layout, the galley can be placed up and forward to port or fully aft and to starboard.

Power options for yacht include twin 675 mhp or 725 mho Volvo Penta diesels, or 850 mhp Caterpillar C12.9 diesels. Top speed is reportedly, 30, 32 and 34 knots, respectively.

Look for the Fairline Squadron 53 on both sides of the pond this fall.
