Fairline Squadron 48 Southampton

Fairline Squadron 48 in the slings at Saxon Wharf, Southampton before a marine survey

A Fairline Squadron 48 at Saxon Wharf, Southampton for a hull only marine survey. The Fairline Squadron is a modern design, boasting numerous innovations such as the submersible bathing platform and allows a jet ski type personal watercraft to be easily launched. Large hull portlights let in natural light into the warm saloon and owner’s cabin, and the twin Volvo Penta IPS600-435 diesels give around 30 knots, while allowing pinpoint manoeuvring while in a marina, regardless of wind or tide with the modern joystick type control. Foam core in the deck and superstructure, with integrally moulded engine bearers, with transverse and longitudinal stingers gives a rigid structure without excessive weight. A marine surveyor looks for deformations and other defects in the structure, in this case some minor areas of deformations within the teak soled cockpit were found, quickly rectified by the excellent Fairline warranty team.
