The Fairline Squadron 55 is a properly dressed performance cruiser from a venerable British boat builder. Rare to the market, this 2002 MK3 version boasts the much improved flybridge layout and proper flybridge stairs. Powered by twin Volvo Penta D12 700hp engines. The luxury accommodation combines a voluminous saloon with separate dinette, and a well equipped galley with adjacent utility room. She has eight separate sleeping berths (including skipper's cabin), which makes her a very versatile and highly sought after motor cruiser. She is finished to a high standard with an inventory that includes both bow and stern thrusters, generator, dual station navigation equipment, hydraulic passerelle, full cockpit and flybridge canopies, cabin heating & air-con, KVH Sat TV, a high-level of safety equipment and much more. An early viewing is highly recommended.
