Fairline Squadron 55

This low hours Squadron 55 is a must see if you are in the market for a powerful flybridge motoryacht. Fitted with the twin Volvo Penta D12 700 HP engines.

Her elegant poise and purposeful lines owe much to her illustrious sisters, but the Fairline Squadron 55 has some distinguishing features of her own. Note the curved aft doors and the unique, scooped shape of the side windows. Moving about the Squadron 55 is safe and easy. There's an internal staircase from the flybridge to the bridgedeck, and wide side decks forward or to the saloon and cockpit area. The extra-long flybridge provides a spacious, open-air deck saloon which includes a semi-circular dining area with a bar, fridge, sink and barbecue griddle. There is also a full-width aft sunbed and double and single helm seats. With direct access by way of the internal stairway, or from the cockpit up the teak-tread ladder, this is a favorite part of the boat for owners and guests alike. At the stern, comprehensive amenities for aft boarding and swimming have been made possible by the design of the large, extended bathing platform. A hydraulic telescopic passerelle with built-in dinghy-handling facilities; plenty of rope, fender and toy stowage; and a hot and cold transom shower are also found here. The spacious and relaxing aft saloon includes a large and sociable semi-circular seating area, an elegant sideboard with TV and VCR, and a comprehensive bar with an icemaker. The separate dining area is on the bridgedeck, with excellent visibility through the main screen and side windows. The central, low-level galley, equipped to the highest standard, also has easy access to the well-fitted utility room  complete with an ironing board. There is also a very convenient internal access door to the engine room from the utility room. Guest accommodation is extensive as well as beautifully appointed. There's a master suite forward and two twin-bedded guest cabins, plus two large washrooms with separate circular shower enclosures. An optional double aft crew cabin can also be chosen.

Designed by Bernard Olesinski and the Fairline Design Team.  Deep 'V' forward; 18 degree deadrise aft, Isophthalic gelcoat backed by an isophthalic resin-rich power-bound glass mat.  All gelcoat and glassfibre is laid up by hand, incorporating chopped strand glass mat and unidirectional and woven rovings.

Transverse and longitudinal strengthening stringers throughout hull.  Full length moulded spray deflectors. 

The integral bathing platform gives the boat a longer waterline length for improved performance, particularly at reduced power settings.

Engine bearers are moulded into the hull.  The propellers are set in semi-tunnels enabling the engines to be located further aft, also reducing draught and improving efficiency by reducing the shaft angle.  Hull/deck join bonded and bolted.

The deck incorporates polyurethane foam cores for high strength and excellent thermal insulation. 

An 8hp bowthruster is fitted with controls at both helm  positions.
