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



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


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

The Fairlie 110

During the career of any yacht designer there will always be a selection of designs that, for one reason or another, never get built. In this, William Fife III was no exception. During his lifetime he proposed well over 100 yachts that suffered this fate; some were simply lines plans, some sail or accommodation plans and a few were fully developed and realised into complete projects.

In the very early 20th Century, William Fife devoted a significant amount of time to developing hull lines for racing under the Universal Rule. Fife’s reasoning behind these hulls is unknown, they may even have been designed with the intention of building an America’s Cup Challenger but, whatever the reason, the result was a set of hull forms that could be built and raced as some of the largest and most striking yachts afloat today. The lines are in Fife’s inimitable style and, when complimented with Fairlie’s singular joinery and finish, result in a yacht that will have, in every way, met with the designer’s intention.

The Fairlie 110 has been developed through our Design Evolution ethos using one of these ‘work in progress’ designs. Fife’s hull lines and Fairlie’s own vast experience and knowledge of his original yachts means that everything visible above the water will sit perfectly, shoulder to shoulder with so many of his famous yachts still gracing the classic circuit today. However the designs have been adapted to the 21st Century by Fairlie’s in-house design team, deploying the technology and ideas used during the development of Fairlie’s smaller Modern Classic Yachts to be the Flagship of the Fairlie Yachts’ Range.
