The second yacht to be launched in the series, the Fairline Squadron 59 offers a three-deck layout with an internal staircase between the spacious, elegant saloon and the large flybridge. The flybridge features sophisticated wet bar facilities (fridge, sink, hot and cold water, stowage cupboards and optional electric griddle), large upholstered seating and sunbed areas, and additional aft access ladder to the cockpit. From the reliable standard on-board generator and substantial capacity of the battery banks, to the generous quantities of fuel and water her tanks can carry, the utmost attention has been paid to the design and engineering of practical features which make cruising and living aboard a real pleasure. These, and many other features help to bring a true 'big-boat' feeling to a yacht which has been designed specifically for ease of management and handling. The performance, sea-keeping and manoeuvrability of the Squadron 59 are outstanding, and her operation is quiet thanks to water-cooled silencers and other engineering refinements. Safety features include an exhaust overheat warning system and alarms to show if any water is present in the fuel filters. The interior layout of the Squadron 59 is both spacious and practical. The bridgedeck provides exceptional visibility from both the helm station and from the adjacent dining area on the port side. The stylish galley, on the same level, offers an equally pleasant outlook, and gives easy access to the dining table and the elegant saloon, a few steps aft. A second saloon layout option provides a two-seater settee to port, alongside a sideboard with bar, icemaker, TV and video. The lower deck has a private atmosphere, thanks to the central lower hallway with its curved paneling; the large master stateroom has its own spacious en suite washroom with circular perspex shower enclosure, bidet and electric toilet. The two twin-bedded guest cabins share a similar washroom. Wardrobe space in all these cabins is extensive. FAIRLINE SQUADRONS: Ever since the introduction of the 62-foot flagship model, the Squadron concept has received worldwide acclaim. The successive introductions of the 65, 59 and 55 have met with equal success, not least for their high standards of craftsmanship and specifications. Fairline draws on the experience of boat owners to improve their product. It's how the Squadron Series was born. Owners said they wanted a large, highly capable and impressive yacht, but they didn't want the cost and privacy-inhibiting presence of a crew on board. They pioneered the trend towards larger integral bathing platforms and swept-stern designs. Initially introduced to protect props and rudders and make access easier, they have now become a major focus of the boat, with showers, storage boxes, wet-lockers and dinghy stowage facilities. Toughened glass windscreens, pantograph wipers on larger boats, substantial 316 stainless steel deck fittings, safety rails and grab-handles, IMCO-approved navigation lights, electric anchor winches, fuel filtration, customized wiring looms and separate circuit-breaker panels are just some of the standard safety items. Universally high equipment specifications are found as standard across the Squadron range. They include generous fuel and fresh water tankage, generators, bow thrusters, multi-feature radars, autopilots and navaids, teak-laid cockpit soles, aft boarding passerelles, space-saving circular showers in uniformly big bathrooms, and interior sprung mattresses on longer-than-average berths. The hull and superstructure of every Squadron is precisely laid up by hand with isophtalic gelcoats and resins, incorporating a substantial grid of bulkheads, frames and stringers with a Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) shell, maintaining the highest build-quality and structural integrity. A through-bolted hull-to-deck joint and, where appropriate, foam sandwich construction add up to high strength with optimum weight and thermal - acoustic efficiency. This translates into a quiet-riding boat of great rigidity and solidity. FAIRLINE BOATS: Fairline features three distinct ranges of power cruiser - the sparkling five-boat Targa range, the three powerful Phantoms, and the elegant and stylish the four-model Squadron Series. At the design and planning stage, Fairline pays particular attention to the demands of long-range passage-making. For example, generous fuel and fresh water tankage is provided to increase range and offshore capability, and the use of space is planned intelligently, by people who understand cruising. Creature comforts like long, comfortable beds, big bathrooms with separate showers, and well equipped, ergonomically planned galleys, combine to make living on board a real pleasure. Fairline uses genuine wood veneers throughout their interiors and bathing platforms on all boats are teak-laid, as are the cockpit floors on Flybridge boats and larger Targas. Solid Avonite or Swanstone tops are fitted on work surfaces and vanity units. Fairline offers a choice of light honey-tinted Maple or rich American Cherry. Larger boats feature even more exquisite combinations: American Cherry, Eucalyptus and Burr Elm; or Maple, Bird's Eye Maple and Madrona Burr. The deeply lacquered, protective finishes complement exclusive ranges of overhead and bulkhead finishes and custom-made soft furnishings, the latter available in an extensive choice of designer fabrics. Fairline's materials and construction methods are rigorously tested for durability, colour-fastness, fire resistance and smoke suppression by the Furniture Industry Research Association (FIRA). Fairline selects the finest marine engines available and design and engineer systems around the selected engines, to enable them to run at maximum efficiency. Aerodynamically-designed air intakes and ventilation systems ensure a continuous supply of cool air. Nickel-aluminium-bronze rudders and sterngear (rather than cheaper manganese-bronze) give strength and long life. Specially designed bonding systems minimize the risk of galvanic corrosion on underwater fittings. Large battery capacities with regulated support systems and oversize starter cables provide real reliability in the long term. From the sports performance of the 4.3 Gi-DP petrol engine to the remarkable power of the KAD44(EDC)-DP six-cylinder compressor-fed turbo aftercooled diesel, the Volvo Penta range promises the finest levels of performance for Fairline owners. Volvo Penta's Duoprop technology was far ahead when it was developed almost fifteen years ago, and still ahead now. The dual contra-rotating propellers grip the water like no other drive, maximizing propulsion efficiency and totally removing the risks of cavitation. A Duoprop drive will reduce the time it takes to get on the plane by some 30-percent over a conventional single propeller drive system. Volvo Penta diesels are quiet, with minimum detectable vibration, exceptionally clean and highly fuel efficient. They are more compact too, so routine service points are easier to check over and the boat's designer can give more space over to accommodation. It is the introduction of electronic control management systems that is now making the greatest impact on development. The TAMD122 EDC and it's sister, the TAMD73 EDC both feature Electronic Diesel Control. This electronic module monitors and controls all the key elements of the engine's operating system - like temperature and fuel supply. It automatically and continuously maximizes engine efficiency. EDC also provides for far easier engine diagnostic monitoring. An operating fault can normally be detected well before it affects the reliability of the engine, and a special plug-in module simplifies service routines, reducing time and saving money. Because EDC is used to operate the engine electrically rather than mechanically, it delivers exceptionally precise control. This feature that can be a real help in close-quarters manoeuvring, such as in crowded harbours and marinas. The electric cabling between the engine and steering position removes any possibility of vibration traveling along their lengths. Cleaner engines result from improvements in combustion efficiency, and in turn combustion efficiency has a direct influence on improving fuel efficiency and overall performance. That is why Volvo Penta has pioneered the development of techniques such as low air rotation, charged piston oil cooling and multi-hole injection systems. Volvo Penta's confidence in its engines is expressed in the protection provided by a truly international warranty. For diesel engines in excess of 300-hp and used by the owner for recreational use, warranty is extended from twelve months to two years. With over 5,000 trained service and parts dealers located around the world, Volvo Penta provides worldwide support. In 1993 Fairline's high standards of design and construction were recognized by the Registro Italiano Navale (RINA) of Italy and in 1994, they achieved full ISO9001 and BS5750 accreditation, unusual among British builders. At the beginning of 1997, Fairline was the very first European builder to achieve CE recognition for its entire range.
