    Actually, it would be annoying if it weren't, considering the available power.

    The overall finishing also looks pretty good.
    Among other details, they must have been inspired by my suggestion on F&S retractable cleats in this thread, I reckon.
    The teak planks design/layout needs attention, though. Btw, it's a bit surprising that in these days of pre-cut, CAD-optimized decks, they didn't do better right from the start.

    As an aside, is Jack still alive? I would have shooted him if he boarded my boat with shoes on, let alone inside the cabin!
    I've seen dodgy teak on previous 1st off the line Fairlines - perhaps the first is hand cut before they CAD it?

    Regards shoes in board, maybe in the cockpit but never inside.

    And what's his obsession with fuel burn? Doesn't he know that someone's wife might be watching?

    In which case a different demographic of buyer .
    There’s room for product development say a 38 or 42 as well in fact a whole range maybe one day a 50 something?
    Princess R35 - 10.88m (inc bathing platform)
    Fairline F33 - 10.00m (exc bathing platform)

    Length at the waterline must be pretty similar.

    Seems a bit slow for that amount of power, Petrols sound great but try shifting it on the secondhand market. Diesels are much the favoured engine option.

    I loved the buttons on steering wheel at 2:40. That’s normal in a car but very good going for a low volume product. They should fit that to all their boats.
    I saw the f33 in Cannes and it’s a very good looking boat.

    Depends what those buttons do. If all they do is adjust the volume/channels for the radio then they're not worth having but if they do stuff like zooming the plotter or adjusting the tabs/leg angle, then thats very useful. Agree its a good looking boat and I wish Fairline well with it

    Which is fun but other than Portofino no one will get close to cruising at threat speed! Especially not on twin petrols!

    I suppose they must think it's a sort of magic number, worth putting in the brochure.
    If they would aim at the segment of the market who really wants to go that fast, those throttles aren't fit for purpose, to start with...

    For me, these boats are all about the builders ego. They don’t add anything to the business, nor the bottom line. If you want a fast tender, there are many options. These are not starter boats for buyers to walk up the brochure to larger boats.
