2010 Fairline Squadron 55

Very occasionally, a boat gains almost iconic status, by advancing the offshore cruising concept to a new level and moving as close to perfection as is possible within the technological and design parameters of its time. Just such a boat was the original Squadron 55, predecessor to this stunning new model. A hard act to follow for sure, but with her avant garde design, innovative use of space, unrivalled craftsmanship and supreme engineering excellence, the new Squadron 55 already looks set to be another classic in the making.

Once the sleek lines and beautiful external shapes have worked their magic, the feeling of unprecedented spaciousness and the light, airy ambience throughout this boat will captivate you. The magnificent full beam master stateroom is our finest ever, with panoramic hull windows, state of the art, electro-opaque, bathroom walls and an immense, cabin-width wardrobe. The saloon, galley and guest accommodation? Same story at every turn. Unmatched light, space, facilities and comfort and luxury redefined.

From the expansive, impressively equipped and beautifully proportioned flybridge, to the fabulously appointed forward cabin, this remarkable new Squadron sets completely new benchmarks for both luxury and quality. Looks like another world-beater has arrived.
