Everything we've learned in 36 years of building fine motors yachts is embodied in the new Squadron 74. From the thoroughly proven sea-going hull form to the smallest detail of the cabinetry, we have drawn on the lessons learned across 10,000 Fairlin boats to create a grand luxe motor yacht quite without peer. From design concept to computer model to full-size walk through mock-up, absolutely nothing has been left to chance; every inch of this boat fits a precise design purpose. Quite simply, the Squadron 74 is the embodiment of what a luxury performance motor yacht should be; and without equal.

Designed by Bernard Olesinski and the Fairline design team. Deep ‘V’ forward: 18° deadrise aft. Isophthalic gel coat backed by an isophthalic resin-rich powder-bound glass mat. All gel coat is laid up by hand, incorporating chopped strand glass mat, unidirectional, biaxial and woven rovings. Transverse and longitudinal strengthening stringers throughout hull. Full length moulded spray deflectors. The integral bathing platform gives the boat a longer waterline length for improved performance, particularly at reduced power settings. Antifouling. Engine bearers are moulded into the hull. The propellers are set in semi-tunnels enabling the engines to be located further aft whilst also reducing draught and improving efficiency by reducing the shaft angle. Hull/deck join is both bonded and through-bolted. The deck incorporates polyurethane foam cores for high strength and excellent thermal insulation. 25hp bowthruster with controls at both helm positions.
