Broker's Comments

A fast motor yacht offering serious long-range cruising in comfort, the Fairline 50's variable 'V' hull form gives the boat extremely reassuring handling, together with an outstandingly dry and comfortable ride.

This boat feels like she has always been looked after and particularly recently in this ownership she has had a lot of work done to keep her in good order. Below the waterline she has been blasted back and through hulls replaced, the hull and deck looked great and mechanically she has been serviced regularly and most recently in 2016. The engine room looks professionally clean and tidy and has plenty of space to work around those lovely yellow Caterpillars!

New covers for the flybridge and cockpit were replaced again in 2016 and all the upholstery above and below is clean and well kept, as are the carpets and timberwork. She has a full array of navigation instruments, slightly dated now but good quality and believed to be all working and so she really is ready to go to sea. With a freezer and a washing machine too below the cockpit sole it would be a while before you'd have to come back!
