A great opportunity to purchase a Fairline Squadron 50. Offering comfortable accommodation for up to 8 in 3 separate cabins plus additional crew, she is fitted out in the popular American Cherry interior joinery finish. With the TAMD122 (610hp) diesels, she offers powerful performance and is ideal for coastal or cross channel cruising with her legendary sea-keeping qualities.

This particular example benefits from extensive maintenance work in the last two years including recent engine overhaul, new fuel tanks, hull stripped back and epoxy treatment applied (2023), along with many other updates.
