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 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 77accommodates 5 cabins:
1 x Master cabin (fwd or aft)
1 x VIP Guest cabin (double or bunked cabin)
1 x Guest cabin (2 bunk cabin)
1 x Crew cabin in the forepeak forward
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 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.
