The UK's Fairline Yachts has announced plans for a new 33ft express cruiser. Designed by Alberto Mancini, it will be the first from Fairline’s new project ‘F-Line’ series and will launch in early 2019.

The new 33, which has already received over a dozen orders, draws on Fairline’s strong heritage of producing fun and exciting day boats, but features luxurious styling cues synonymous with Mancini.

The entry-level model will feature a single stern-drive engine from Volvo Penta with the option to upgrade to twin diesels. For even greater performance, twin V8 petrol engines will be available.

“Inspired by our long heritage in designing and building sub-40ft yachts, we are pleased to make public our first, exciting, compact day boat which will further broaden the appeal of the Fairline brand," says Andrew Pope, head of design at Fairline Yachts.

“This stylish day boat embraces outdoor living and will feature an expansive foredeck sunbathing area, open plan forward cabin and innovative fold-down transom. The wrap-around windows offer a light and airy feel and hand-crafted details add luxury. The design clearly draws on Fairline’s core DNA but with a very modern twist and, of course, offers the robust seakeeping we are known the world over for.”

Prices of the new Fairline 33 will start from around £210,000, excluding taxes.
