A company spokesman said: “The world debut of the third model in Fairline’s 48ft range – the Targa 48 Gran Turismo – was one of the main highlights of the show. The introduction of this new range has played a significant part in the recent uptake in orders and recovery in forward sales that the brand has seen. To meet this demand Fairline is now actively recruiting up to 38 boatbuilders to work across its factories.”

The show also saw Fairline launch its 100th Squadron 78 model. Now in its 12th year of production, the Squadron 78 is one of the brand’s most successful and iconic luxury motor yachts, with each model crafted to the owner’s requirements by Fairline’s factory teams.

A popular new feature of this year’s Fairline stand was the Concept Cinema, which gave customers, show visitors and industry guests a glimpse of the future of motor boating with the Fairline eSprit concept boat. The concept incorporates sustainable materials in construction and design, without compromising styling and performance.

Kevin Gaskell, CEO of Fairline, said: “We are delighted with the success we enjoyed at this year’s London Boat Show and would like to thank our teams in Oundle and Corby for all their hard work in producing such beautiful boats. Sales were excellent at the show, with the final total exceeding last year’s figure, and our impressive stand attracted a stream of visitors throughout the show.”
