All Fairline Boats For Sale
Fairline began its passion for developing quality cruisers back in 1967 when it launched its first-ever River Cruiser. This was just the start for Fairline as they became an international leader in the marine industry.
It was Jack Newington’s vision that pushed Fairline to the heights it has now reached. Based on the ideals of quality and integrity, his passion for excellence quickly gained the Fairline brand many accolades.
Ten years on and Fairline introduced the first Fairline Phantom 32 and Fairline 40, both of which have been in production for over a decade. In 1985 Fairline then went on to produce the Targa range and the renowned Squadron in 1991.
Style and quality had changed dramatically since 1967, as the market's customers increased the demand for perfection and variety. Jack Newington’s son, Sam, took the lead role for 25 formative years and continued the adventure his father had started. Those central core values were kept safe, and the models produced were of the highest design and engineering qualities. Fairline has not failed to rise to the challenge and are still, are in many eyes, the best mass-produced powerboat in the marine industry market place.
Year of Formation
The company began on the River Nene in the East of England, where Jack Newington brought some gravel pits to create the Oundle Marine. He created his first boat, which was a 19-foot handcrafted plastic river cruiser, which was the first-ever Fairline Boat.
In 1971 Newington’s son Sam took over the company, and it began to expand quickly. He employed 14 people and decided to expand its sales network overseas as he knew there was a great chance to take advantage of the Mediterranean market place. By the late 1970s, Fairline employed 140 people and had a 7 figure turnover. When Sam retired in 1996, CEO Derek Carter expanded the company creating Fairline boats of North America Inc.
The 10,000th Fairline boat was completed in 2002, as were new facilities at the original Fairline Site. In 2003 the Fairline Club Owners was founded and continued to offer its customers, the Fairline family, all of the knowledge and care they could ever need.
