Fairline’s Cozy Cruiser: F-line 33

The Fairline F-Line 33 could work as a large-yacht tender or a dayboat.

It’s hard to argue with the way the Fairline F-Line 33 looks. The Alberto Mancini- designed dayboat packs a sports car’s muscularity into her 32-foot-9-inch frame, not only by way of optional twin 430 hp Volvo Penta or Mercruiser V-8s that reportedly push her to a top-end speed of 47 knots but also with her sure-handed performance. I recently got aboard the F-Line 33 off Monaco in 5-foot swells that kept most smaller boats in the harbor, and her deep-V hull form swallowed the Mediterranean whole, particularly once she crested the 30-knot mark and got out over the top of the waves.

Whom It’s For: This is a boat for any yachtsman who likes to go fast and get home safely.

Picture This: Unexpected storm clouds ambush your picnic on the hook just outside the harbor in Newport, Rhode Island. Angry whitecaps shake their fists, blocking the way between your party and the dock. But that’s no problem when this Fairline belongs to you. Just tap the throttle down. You’ll scoot home in peace and be warm and dry in just a few minutes.
