Name: Fairline Squadron 42
Length: 42ft 6in (12.94m)
This yacht proved to be one of our most ambitious challenges. How can the identity of our most inspiring and exclusive models translate into a smaller yacht?
It was the most wonderful brief for our designers that would require every ounce of their ingenuity and experience. The result is a compact Squadron with the genuine feeling of a much, much larger yacht. Each area has been designed to work in harmony with the next. Your journey through the entire yacht is seamless, with no interruptions. And it is this flow that gives a feeling of a luxurious, open space. The type of freedom you would only expect from a 50+ foot yacht. The large flybridge isn’t just for show, every aspect has been carefully considered to create the space for people to move around freely. Yes, we can safely say, it is every inch a Squadron.
The light fantastic
There’s a huge expanse of glazing that stretches all the way to the aft corners, sending light flooding into the interior. The foredeck glazing is a Fairline signature and opens up the forward cabin with a ceiling of uninterrupted natural light.
Intelligent, usable space
The backseat converts into a rear-facing lounger to create a sociable terrace area and to watch over those taking a swim. The walk-around side decks mean you can move to the front of the yacht easily and safely. Inside, the starboard guest cabin’s en suite has two doors that open wide to give the room a more opulent and spacious feel.
This is the smallest boat in Fairline’s range to offer the hydraulically powered Tender Launch System. The option of the hydraulic passerelle also makes for easy boarding and slides away at the touch of a button.
