With a history spanning over 50 years, UK based Fairline has a remarkable international reputation for its award-winning range of yachts, which are exclusively available through Simpson Marine, and handcrafted and engineered in England and Italian designed by Alberto Mancini.
In Hong Kong, Fairline Yachts, has recreated the spirit of Riviera adventures with the Fairline Squadron 50. With the most exquisite design and performance, the Squadron 50 plays out in the Riviera, be it for weekend staycations, parties or family days at sea. Its handcrafted touches of elegant wood finish and meticulous detailing evoke the Riviera of the West and its considerate design touches of elegant styling and five-star amenities are perfectly fitting for life in the East, with an extra spacious interior for ultimate comfort and style.
Voyaging from the majestic Victoria Harbour to iconic Repulse Bay, the then ‘Riviera of the Orient’, enjoyed by many famed icons, from Marlon Brando to Ernest Hemingway, many yacht trips have been savored along the shores and celebrated aboard Fairline Yachts.
The spirit of adventure drives everything Fairline does. Contemporary and stylish, the new Squadron 50 blends luxurious details synonymous with the Fairline brand, coupled with a sporty streak – upholding elegance, comfort, and performance.
“Fairline is one of the most prestigious motor yacht brands in the world with a strong British heritage, highly reputed craftsmanship and magnificent interiors,” says Richard Allen, Group General Manager at Simpson Marine. “They are renowned for their understated elegance, contemporary designs, power, performance and comfort, which is precisely what our customers want from their yachts today.”
FAIRLINE SQUADRON 50
The Fairline Squadron 50 is a renowned Squadron Flybridge model, complete with wet bar and sunbed conversion on the sun deck, a layout perfect for family adventures. The elevated flybridge offers top visibility, and exquisite views while dining and catching the sea breeze. There’s also a BBQ and entertainment system, and the interior cabin keeps people cool during summer. The exquisite interiors are inspired by St Tropez, Capri and Amalfi.
GUEST YACHT CHARTERS & BESPOKE ON-BOARD CATERING
Simpson Marine is now combining Fairline Yachts and Peninsula Hong Kong in Asia to offer exclusive guest yacht charters, bespoke on-board catering and event collaborations. For the launch of Fairline Squadron 50, Peninsula Hong Kong served the finest British afternoon tea on the fly bridge surrounded by the timeless elegance of Hong Kong’s Riviera of the Orient.
This galley down two-cabin version of the signature Squadron 50 is finished in high walnut joinery. Its feature bulkhead gives the master cabin added wow factor and the interior has rich, luxurious textures throughout from oak flooring, Carrara white marble worktops, Italian leather, and accents of satin bronze and atmospheric lighting. The new exterior styling across the entire 50ft range features stunning anthracite vinyl wrapped hardtops. Color options of burnt orange, vivid red or electric blue upholstery and complementing helm seats all create a stand-out impression as soon as you step on board. Furthermore, Simpson Marine is thrilled to offer customisation for the Squadron 50 in Hong Kong, which it believes will be a highly desirable feature of its service.
