Fairlie Yachts Design Conception

Designed for both cruising and racing, these magnificent yachts reflect the style and quality of a golden age of yachting. This coupled with a modern underwater body and rig, creates a yacht which is as easy to handle as any modern yacht on the market today.

Our Green Credentials

At Fairlie Yachts we are concerned about the hardwoods and trees that go into building these yachts

The Fairlie Build

A substantial yacht is made up of a thousand details, and the whole may be far greater than the sum of these parts, yet without people, she is nothing

Design Concepts

The yacht designs showcased in these pages were conceived by a desire to make Fairlie’s unique quality, skills and knowledge available to a wider group of individuals

History

11

Fairlie Restorations of Fife classics began in 1985 with a rich history running through to the launch of a new range of classic Yachts.

Skills and Workforce

Fairlie has a history of working with a skilled workforce, drawing on the history of traditional yacht building in the Southampton area

Restoration

From 1987, and starting with the Altair project, Fairlie have been restoring traditional sailing yachts of all sizes

At Fairlie Yachts we are concerned about the hardwoods and trees that go into building these yachts. Wood is, of course, a truly biodegradable material so we can be sure that at the end of the yacht’s working life nothing will remain to be buried in landfill, however many of the timbers used a century ago are not available any more due to over use, and many more that are being used now are on their way to a similar fate. For this reason we are careful to source our timbers, whenever possible, from sustainable sources and we are constantly trying new timbers in areas traditionally aligned with one particular species. It is our hope that future customers will want us to build our yachts entirely from sustainable timbers with the use of less well known but equally suitable species used throughout and in this way it is our desire to build some of the most environmentally conscious yachts available today.
