Fairline Luxury Motor Yachts and Boats for Sale
My inspiration is taken from my experience in the mega yacht field, but also from the rich history of Fairline creating timeless, classic usable yachts for almost 50 years. - Alberto Mancini.
In 1963, Fairline started life when Jack Newington, a man with an entrepreneurial spirit and unwavering commitment to excellence, purchased a series of gravel pits on the River Nene and built Oundle Marina. The Fairline 19 was the first boat launched in 1967, a 19-foot handcrafted GRP river cruiser. Jack’s son, Sam, took over the company and expanded the sale’s network overseas to take advantage of the expanding Mediterranean market in the year 1971.
The Fairline 40 was launched in the year 1977 and it remained in production for a record eleven years. The company was employing 140 people and was turning over £5 million by 1970. In the year 1981, one of Fairline’s most enduring models, the Turbo 36, an aft-cabin craft, was launched to huge acclaim. Fairline redefined the modern express cruiser with the launch of the Targa in 1985. The company continued expanding with new production sites at Weldon, Corby and Nene Valley, Oundle.
1986 saw more acclaim when the company were awarded the much coveted and prestigious Queen’s Award for Export Achievement. The company established Fairline Boats of North America Inc., creating a network of 35 dealers with Sam’s retirement in 1996. Fairline Motor Yachts had built 10,000 boats by 2002 and after two years the figure had risen to 12,000. In the year 2006, the company was purchased by 3i, the first of several sales over the following ten years.
The company went into administration in 2015 and in 2016 their assets were purchased by Alexander Volvov and Igor Glyanenko, UK-based Russian businessmen. The company was re-launched as Fairline Yachts Ltd. and continue to this day building upon the line’s distinguished heritage.
