British boatbuilder Fairline Yachts said the Squadron 53 will have its U.S. debut at the March 23-26 Palm Beach International Boat Show.

The yacht was launched in January at Boot Dusseldorf in Germany.

At the Palm Beach show, Fairline also will showcase its limited-edition 50th anniversary commemorative book, together with an immersive virtual reality experience bringing to life its Targa 63GTO.

Superyacht designer Alberto Mancini added his design expertise to the Squadron 53. The boat is based on the existing 53-foot hull, but features a new design from the deck up.

The company said Mancini’s design resulted in a spacious main deck with a flat floor from the cockpit to the lower helm, which in turn ensures a flat ceiling in the master cabin offering a generous 6-foot, 4-inch headroom at the foot of the large double bed, adding to the overall sense of space in this expansive 55-foot, 6-inch cruiser.

The company said the clever layout configurations provide owners with complete flexibility, including three or four cabins and multiple galley arrangements, including the main deck, forward or aft locations or below deck and the new addition of foredeck seating.
