Fairline Boats is launching the all-new Squadron 50 flybridge motor yacht at the PSP Southampton Boat Show. With its cleverly designed interior layout arrangement, the three cabin, two en-suite Squadron 50 flybridge motor yacht provides an unsurpassed amount of living space in its class.
Owners of the Squadron 50 will have a master cabin the size that would normally be expected on a yacht of 60ft plus. Panoramic hull windows and overhead glazing add natural light into the cabin, further contributing to the feeling of spaciousness. The two additional twin cabins comprise two beds which can be converted to doubles. An optional fourth-crew cabin with feature window is also available and is easily accessed from the cockpit, even when underway.
Fairline’s design trend towards spacious and light-filled living areas continues into the large saloon with its huge panoramic windows, available with optional powered opening section. A first on a Fairline motor yacht, the galley is positioned aft in the saloon, allowing easy access for al fresco dining in the sociable cockpit area. The glass patio door features an optional opening window ideal for serving guests in the cockpit.
The class-leading flybridge is larger than previously seen on a boat of this size, providing plentiful areas for entertaining and relaxing, and the upper helm position has been located portside to enable an even clearer view of the rear platform when mooring.
The Squadron 50’s large open aft cockpit follows Fairline’s trend towards sociable layouts, with its seating area facing the saloon. The cockpit is teak-laid throughout and includes a storage locker underfloor and liferaft stowage. Lockers are also located at the foredeck. Connecting the cockpit to the saloon is a glass patio door, with optional opening window. Separate access hatches are provided to the engine room and optional fourth/crew cabin.
From the cockpit, teak laid steps go up onto the large flybridge, featuring a large sunbed for two people and storage underneath, as well as dining seating with table that can be converted to a cushioned sunbathing area. A bar unit with sink and refrigerator allows for effortless entertaining. Drinks holders are located throughout the flybridge (and foredeck). The second helm position is located portside of the flybridge, allowing an even clearer view of the rear platform when manoeuvring. It includes full repeat flybridge engine instrumentation and autopilot control, helm and companion seating. A wind-deflecting screen with grab rail is positioned in a wrap-around style.
Plentiful windows are featured aboard the Squadron 50 create naturally light-filled spaces. Huge panoramic windows in the saloon area are available with an optional powered opening section. Rich furnishings, finishes and the finest craftsmanship appear throughout the accommodation. The joinery is finished in oak satin or walnut satin with espresso gloss. Fairline’s in-house design department has specially selected a comprehensive choice of co-ordinated carpets and upholsteries. Air conditioning and heating systems can be fitted throughout the accommodation if required.
Saloon and galley
The open-living style saloon features a dining area with fold-out table, and sideboard with a 22” flatscreen television, which is next to the twin seating that has been positioned near the cockpit for sociable living. The sideboard also includes plentiful space for crockery. Additional storage space is placed under the seating. A chaise-longue is located adjacent to the main helm station.
The galley, positioned aft of the saloon and its layout is perfect for serving guests either in the saloon or cockpit. Equipment includes an electric twin hob with extractor fan, combination microwave/oven, and refrigerator. The sink is positioned underneath the galley window. There are plentiful drawers and cupboard space, and a durable, white melamine Fairline Edition dinner service, which is perfect for alfresco dining.
