The new Fairline 55 is way bigger than its illustrious ancestor. Not only is it more generous on headroom but Fairline has worked in a generous midships cabin and the clever arrangement of the ensuite means you get the effect of a full beam master.
The VIP forecabin gets an excellent dose of natural light through a skylight that follows the cut of the coachroof and that still leaves a very chic third cabin, which again boasts plenty of headroom.
Back up at main deck level – via the feature turning staircase – the most marked difference between the earlier 55 and this new model is that the galley is no tucked away in a dark well. It is now positively celebrated, sitting opposite the more elevated of the two comfortable saloon seating areas.
With a mix of cutting edge electronics and deck design, Fairline has produced a boat which redefines the future of sailing.
