    If you want to go fast then buy the 860hp petrol engines. If you want to get off and on then get a step fitted to the quay. If you want shade then buy the T Top version.

    At 33ft there are bound to be conpromises.

    I'm sure it's big sister when it comes along will solve some of them at a price.

    The engine options are a bit odd, there's only one diesel option and it only gives you 33 knots max, if you want faster you have to have petrol engines

    So the now permanently submerged transom ( as it’s now rotated to extend the BP ) needs antifoul ?
    And it’s underneath mechanism like weeks / months of total submersion ?
    Or if turned up / rotated close the boats positioned in its berth so far out the marina staff start a row about inappropriate boat L paid , ie it’s not fitting in its sub 10 M or what ever .

    Once out of warranty owners are looking @ extra expense with that rotating transom into a BP .

    How do you get on it if ( for what ever reason ) the transom fails to rotate ?

    Med boaters are gonna run for hills .
    Or walk next door @ boat shows to this

    I hope you are right....

    Here is a nice video of the 65 (63 was renamed) https://youtu.be/wd4P7TFPpAc

    Price is competitive.
    Porto, Fairlines have never been performance boats. The most performance boat they ever might have made I remember is the Targa 38 GTO with twin 400hp D6s and stern drives which goes above 40 knots. Can't think of a faster Fairline then this.

    If you want a performance marquee you look at Magnum, Pershing, AB Yachts, Alfamarine, the Abbate brothers, Chaudron (Maltese Powerboat maker), Cigarette, Donzi, Fountain any one of these has much more pedigree then all the the three Brits combined.
    I mean even the idolized Hunton has not won much in real world racing.

    The bathing platform isn't submerged when down.
