Fairlie 55, I am in love
Is it possible to be in love with a boat? In this case I doubt there is a sailor out there worth his salt that would not be totally smitten by this beautiful yacht. The line and shape are from another era, like a classic film and yet this sweet dream is all new. Check out the video and you to will be under it’s spell. No kidding.
From their own website “Designed for both cruising and racing, this magnificent yacht reflects the style and quality of a golden age of yachting. This coupled with a modern underwater body and rig, creates a yacht which is as easy to handle as any modern yacht on the market today. She will be admired and envied in any marina or anchorage and with her performance rig and sails will show many of her closest rivals a clean pair of heels.
Following the exciting World launch of the Fairlie 55 at Cannes Yacht Show in 2011; we are pleased to announce our ‘show boat’ is FOR SALE and keenly priced at £750,000 ex tax.
In the Autumn of 2011 this beautiful modern classic turned heads on the Cote d’Azur & ‘wowed’ all admirers at the shows and regattas. When reviewing the Fairlie 55, Yachting World commented “I can guarantee you will be enchanted with the Fairlie 55. She champions wooden boatbuilding skill and craftsmanship, and she sails beautifully” Toby Hodges YW. January 2012.”
