Finance this Fairline Boat*

“2018” Fairline Squadron 53 powered by twin Volvo D11 725 Hp inboard shaft driven diesel engines.  She has the popular 4 cabin galley-up layout, she was supplied by us to her one owner and has been well cared for.

This boat was a stock boat of ours originally so she has a huge specification, she has the high gloss Walnut cabinetry, leather sofas throughout, large generator, air conditioning with reverse cycle heating and a full Garmin electronics package. This boat would be perfectly at home in the Med with paserrelle, mooring capstans and Bimini top also factory fitted.

We have just taken her back in part exchange against another new Fairline, as a used stock boat she will be sold through our “Dealer Approved” scheme, so full serviced, valeted, snagged etc.

She is currently laying ashore with us here in Swanwick where a viewing is highly recommended. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for further information.
