The Fairline Targa 53GT and Targa 48 Open have joined the Miami boat show fleet, representing a public comeback for the British brand
Fairline is making its official public comeback in Miami this weekend, with local broker G Marine representing the brand for the first time since it came out of administration.
A Fairline Targa 53GT and Targa 48 Open will be on display throughout the Yachts Miami Beach Show, one of America’s biggest boat shows which opened today and runs until Monday (February 15).
Miles Moorhouse, marketing manager at Fairline Yachts, said: “South Florida is among the largest leisure boat markets and we are keen to continue the long-term relationship with G Marine in Miami.
“G Marine is one of the crown jewels,” he added. “We appreciate the company’s experience and input as we are focused on developing new and exciting models.”
This is the first boat show appearance for new company Fairline Yachts, which was founded by Russian investors Alexander Volov and Igor Glyanenko when they bought the Oundle yard out of administration last month in a deal believed to be worth £4.5m.
The new owners were quick to name Russell Currie, director of brokerage firm Fairline North Mallorca, as the managing director of Fairline Yachts.
Fairline has recently confirmed plans for its UK comeback, with appearances scheduled for the London On-Water Boat Show and British Motor Yacht Show in May.
