British boatbuilder Fairline Yachts is expanding its manufacturing capabilities by adding a 17,000-square-foot production facility at Oundle Marina, the boatyard’s original location when it was launched 50 years ago.

Fairline’s 50th anniversary year, which the company is calling its “year of Golden Moments,” started with the company reporting strong boat show sales in the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States.

Fairline said it is expanding its production capabilities to accommodate the increased demand. The company said its additional factory space also will ensure that it continues to create new boats and improve existing products.

This news comes shortly after the first anniversary of Fairline Yachts’ new management team, which has employed more than 250 people and launched two new models — the Targa 53 Open and Squadron 53.

The company has implemented updates to the interior finishes across the 48-foot model range, added a hardtop option and new interior to the Squadron 65 and unveiled plans for two completely new boats.

The upcoming models are the Targa 43 Open and the Targa 63 GTO. Both were created by Italian superyacht designer Alberto Mancini.
