British luxury boat manufacturer, Fairline Yachts, is launching the third variant from its popular 53ft range, the Squadron 53, at Boot Düsseldorf 2017. The launch of the Squadron 53 follows 2016’s hugely successful unveilings of the Squadron 65 Hardtop at Cannes Yachting Festival, and the Targa 53 OPEN at Southampton International Boat Show.
The summer of 2017 will mark 50 years of Fairline, and this is set to be celebrated with Fairline's beautiful, hard-back commemorative book, created in the brand’s honour. Launched at London Boat Show 2017, the book will be on show at Boot Dusseldorf and will include anecdotes from notable Fairline owners, key Fairline personnel, heritage images of some of the first Fairlines ever made, key moments in the brand’s history and will tell the story of Fairline’s first 50 years.
Boot Dusseldorf 2017 will also see the immersive virtual reality (VR) experience which debuted at London Boat Show 2017, available on the Fairline stand. The first fully Alberto Mancini-designed Fairline, the Targa 63 GTO, is not set to be unveiled until Cannes Yachting Festival 2017, but the VR experience will allow visitors to the Fairline stand to explore the beautifully designed yacht both inside and out, and to experience the new age of Fairline Yachts.
