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

Fairlie modern classic yachts

The Fairlie 55

Designed for both cruising and racing, this magnificent yacht reflects 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. She will be admired and envied in any marina or anchorage and with her performance rig and sails will show many of her closest rivals a clean pair of heels.

In the Autumn of 2011 this beautiful modern classic turned heads on the Cote d’Azur & ‘wowed’ all admirers at the shows and regattas. When reviewing the Fairlie 55, Yachting World commented “I can guarantee you will be enchanted with the Fairlie 55. She champions wooden boatbuilding skill and craftsmanship, and she sails beautifully” Toby Hodges YW. January 2012.

Fairlie Yachts provide unrivalled customer care and a full management service program if required.  A full one year warranty will be provided on purchase.

 

Construction,
hull & deck

The hull is constructed from a laminated mahogany backbone and frames, with a layer of Douglas fir strip planking, two layers of mahogany veneers laid at 45 degrees and one layer fore & aft. The entire structure is laminated using West System Epoxy Resin and is finally covered with two layers of GRP for protection.

The deck is built from a layer of marine plywood grooved on the underside, and laid with 12mm thick, swept teak decking with a varnished king plank, covering boards and toe rail.

The ultra-modern fin and bulb keel has an SG cast iron fin and a lead bulb and is assembled and bolted through the hull structure. The spade rudder is a laminated plywood blade with a stainless steel shaft.

The hull is painted with an Awlgrip / International urethane paint system on the topsides and a hard antifouling. On deck the varnish work will be Epiphanes Gloss Varnish.
