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

Fife’s Legacy

With the first decade of the 21st Century run its course, a few thoughts on the reasons why the designs of a third generation Ayrshire born yacht designer remain so important 150 years after his birth
