If you're seriously looking for a Squadron 55 this particular example must be on your short list! A Mk III example, so benefitting from the bigger flybridge seating area and the later D-12 series engines, she ticks all the boxes with the American Cherry interior joinery, leather upholstery, reverse cycle air-conditioning, comprehensive electronics package, bow and stern thrusters, crew cabin and passerelle to name but a few.
"Fairline took an already nice yacht and made it, well, magnificent" - Yachting Magazine
The Fairline Squadron 55 is a properly dressed performance cruiser from a venerable British boat builder. Built in 2002, powered by twin Volvo Penta D12 700hp engines. The luxury accommodation combines a voluminous saloon with separate dinette, and a well equipped galley with adjacent utility room. She has eight separate sleeping berths (including skipper's cabin), which makes her a very versatile and highly sought after motor cruiser. She is finished to a high standard with an inventory that includes both bow and stern thrusters, generator, dual station navigation equipment, hydraulic passerelle, full cockpit and flybridge canopies, KVH Sat TV, new carpets being fitted. Recently antifouled, topsides polished, anodes replaced. Currently in preparation for sale, although an early viewing is highly recommended.
