Fairline Boats plans new-model rollout


British luxury yacht builder Fairline Boats said the company plans to introduce eight new models during the next three years and will reveal details at the London Boat Show in January.

“We’re excited to be announcing these plans to introduce eight new models over the next three years and looking forward to sharing the full details with customers in just a couple of months’ time,” Fairline Boats commercial director Stuart McCullough said Thursday at the opening day of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

“Our new-look engineering team gives us fresh expertise to deliver cutting-edge design and product development, and we’ll be making a real statement at the London Boat Show about the future of Fairline.”

In recent weeks, Fairline announced two new additions to its engineering team to support the new-product plans and underline what Fairline said is its commitment to high-quality engineering and boatbuilding excellence.

Stefan Whitmarsh joined the company as head of engineering and Ben Harrison as engineering manager.
