    Default New Fairline F//LINE

    Finally it's here . Launch event is tonight, sadly I can't make it. However, I've just been sent a pic of it being unloaded and it's an absolute beauty. I'm sure there will be more photos floating around later today.

    I believe it folds down. They have deliberately kept the boat at 9.99m in order to enjoy cheaper mooring costs.

    Guess being under 10m it fits into the lower ICC class as well

    That hadn't occurred to me but you're dead right.

    I think it's around £300k so half the price of the Princess R35 and S/S Hawk 38.

    Still, around £250k more than I can afford!

    Brochure says the diesel variant has tiny 2 x Volvo Penta D3-220 diesel, sterndrive (440hp)
    33 knots (est. max.).
    What is it with Mancini and FL,s newer diesel modals ( tbh it’s hard to work out who’s responsible) and lack lustre performance.

    The only thing I can think of it’s ( and the GTO 63 ) got a flat aft section for high lift ,ie minimal dead rise allowing weaker engines to give the performance figures .
    Weaker engines are usually smaller lighter occupy less space , smaller tankage and other accommodation loving advantages.

    Problem shakes out quite literally in chop , the things bounce about being light weight with a lower than relative competitors dead rise.
    By that time the owners funds are in FL,s account

    Some experienced Med boaters will want fixed sunpads at the back or turned around not want to phaff with a convertible table and infill cushions.
    You need shade too from the Bimini sometimes when sunbathing a fwd / bow cushion only on a small boats can’t do that

    So when it’s time to eat the convertible rear Sun pad has to be put back to seats + table ?

    A permanent bathing platform makes boarding easy with Med mooring .
    None passerelle boats usually fit a step to climb down , get on and off .
    To all the Med boaters on here can someone kindly explain how to get on it , or off if it’s in your marina .Finger pontoon guys exempt, I can figure that one out .
