New 68 already under construction and to make debut at Cannes

Last month saw the last ever Squadron 65 leave the Fairline Yachts Ipswich factory, making way for the all new Squadron 68, the first of which are already under construction at Fairline’s new manufacturing facility in Hythe, Southampton.

Featuring the Italian design of Alberto Mancini and engineering from Vripack, the Squadron 68 was initially called the Squadron 64, but the new spacious flybridge model has been renamed says Fairline, to reflect its grand proportions. According to the builder, the Squadron 68 offers 12% more lower deck accommodation space, a 5% larger main deck saloon area and a 10% bigger flybridge than the outgoing Squadron 65.

The addition of a 2.5ft extension to the Squadron 68’s bathing platform provides greater space for PWCs, jet tender or sun loungers, to create a beach-club style environment that closely connects you to the water. The yacht offers an expansive main deck galley as well as the newly designed option of an extended VIP forward cabin, offering the additional benefit of a vanity unit and even greater storage space.  

The Squadron 68 is also available with three cabin and day head, or four cabin layouts.

David Tydeman, Executive Chairman at Fairline Yachts, comments, “Our Squadron range has always aimed to provide owners with the ultimate luxury escape and we’re confident the new Squadron 68 delivers this. It is our most sophisticated model yet and we’re sure our customers around the world will love the irresistible blend of ultra-modern design from Alberto Mancini and the sumptuous onboard environment. We can’t wait to share her with our customers at Cannes Yachting Festival this September.”
