The Fairlie 77 is a beautiful William Fife inspired cruising yacht which is at one cruising extended oceans as she is competing in the many fine regattas of today. As with her 55ft sister ship; Fairlie’s traditional styling, use of materials and high quality finish is exceptional. Qualities which Fairlie Yachts have become famous for worldwide.
The yacht is offered with two sail plans; for cruising a cutter headed yawl for ease of sail handling and elegant lines, or a more typical sloop rig with a hugely powerful foretriangle and mainsail.
With either sailplan the underwater hull form, keel and rudder will ensure she is extremely fast and her handling is as concise as the already proven Fairlie. The F77 can be fully specified for world cruising and fitted with all the engineering systems and comforts expected in today’s large yachts.
The Fairlie 77 offers two interior accommodation layouts. As standard the large master cabin, with en-suite bathroom and separate wet room, is located forward of the saloon. For those owners who would prefer their ‘master’ cabin aft, Paul Spooner, has designed a very private cabin which has its own dedicated companionway access and private cockpit. This layout offers excellent privacy and separation from your guests and two crew. Whichever layout is preferred, the Fairlie 77 accommodates 5 cabins:
1 x Master cabin (fwd or aft)
1 x VIP Guest cabin (double or bunked cabin)
1 x Guest cabin (bunk cabin)
1 x Crew cabin in the forepeak forward
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.
