Space, handling and elegance.
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 fore triangle and mainsail.
With either sail plan 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 F 66 can be fully specified for world cruising and fitted with all the engineering systems and comforts expected in today’s large yachts.
The Fairlie 66 offers two interior accommodation layouts- Mid saloon and Aft saloon. in each layout a large master cabin with an island bed, with en-suite bathroom is located forward of the saloon. In the mid saloon version there are two mirrored double cabins built around the cockpit, with one other shared bathroom.
In the aft saloon layout there is a double cabin to starboard and a twin bunk cabin to port. In either version this yacht accommodates 6 guests in 3 cabins with two bathrooms:
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 10mm thick, swept teak decking (other more ecological timbers are available) with a scrubbed king plank, paint bulwarks, varnished cap rail.
The deckhouse sides and cockpit coaming are constructed from straight grained Utile, which is cut from the same tree as all the other varnished woodwork onboard. This way a perfect colour and grain is matched throughout the yacht. The toughened glass windows are rebated into the sides to give a clean exterior finish. The coachroof is made up of glass sheathed plywood grooved on the underside glued to laminated utile beams to give a classic look to the underside. The large skylight and companionway hatch are traditionally hand built from Utile to the highest joinery standard.
