2010 Fairline Squadron 78
Everything weve learned in more than 40 years of building fine motor yachts is to be found in the breathtakingly elegant, award- winning Squadron 78 CUSTOM. From the well-proven hull to the smallest detail of cabinetry, weve drawn on lessons learned from the creation of over 11,000 Fairlines, in order to create a peerless luxury motor yacht. From design concept through to full-size mock-up, nothing has been left to chance, so that every inch of this boat fits a precise design purpose.
The Squadron 78 embodies everything that, as an owner, you would expect in a luxury performance motor yacht
as well as a great many things you probably wouldnt. Large, luminous entertaining areas; grand private staterooms that combine light, space and air to stunning effect; and everywhere, the dazzling interplay between the finest materials (hand-selected granite work surfaces, hand-matched burrs and exotic woods) and state-of-the-art design accents and features.
In summary, our current Squadron flagship took three years to develop and countless thousands of man-hours to reach such a pinnacle of excellence
and it shows. Everywhere you look. As its name implies, a high level of customisation is a feature of this stunning yacht and clients can rely on the specialist advice, experience and exclusive services of our Yacht Division throughout the order and commissioning process.
