British luxury boat builder, Fairline Yachts, releases new images of its brand new 33ft express cruiser, the F-Line 33. This eagerly anticipated boat will launch in Spring 2019, with an immersive virtual reality experience of the boat launching at Cannes Yachting Festival in September 2018.
With a large forward sun bed and a spacious aft seating area, configurable to another sun bed, the 33’s deck is made for summer time entertaining. The sociable self-contained cockpit galley features a high spec BBQ, fridge and ice maker. An innovative drop-down transom extends the usable space onboard by an additional three feet, creating an increased connection to the water and adds to the overall sociability of the boat. The F-Line 33 is fitted with Fusion Entertainment’s newly launched premium Apollo system, the first marine entertainment system that features a one-piece glass touchscreen display and built-in Wi-Fi streaming. Atmospheric signature lighting features thoughtfully throughout the boat, creating a warm ambience onboard whilst looking striking externally. The simple touch screen glass bridge helm reflects the boat’s sleek lines and has been designed with ease of use front of mind. Fittings such as cleats and fender eyes are neatly hidden away and pop up when required. The boat’s interior flows seamlessly, featuring a mid-cabin with double bed, day head with shower, U-shaped seating with table and bed conversion. The entry-level model has twin Volvo Penta V6-240 petrol engines but for even greater performance the option of either twin Volvo V8-430’s or twin Mercruiser 8.2 litre petrol V8’s are offered. A diesel option utilising twin D3-220’s from Volvo is also available.
The F-Line 33 has been designed by 2018’s World Yacht Trophies Yacht Designer of the Year winner, Alberto Mancini. Alberto comments, “I believe the F-Line 33 is a real example of a classic 1960s car design, shaped into a small but perfectly formed yacht. We have achieved the best proportions possible within such an exciting and exhilarating design. Most importantly, the boat incorporates the ability to not just be a fun, fast boat when required, but also one that you could spend a weekend enjoying a short cruise with family and friends.”
Fairline Yachts’ Managing Director, Russell Currie, adds, “The F-Line 33 shows a bold new direction for Fairline, whilst drawing on our long heritage of producing fun and exciting day boats. Critically, it represents the first new model line for Fairline for over 25 years and we are confident the boat will appeal to a new generation of boat owners, whilst retaining uncompromised Fairline quality and design which will resonate with our existing customers.”
