The Fairline Squadron 55 MKII has elegant poise and purposeful lines owe much to her illustrious sisters, but the Fairline Squadron 55 has some distinguishing features of her own, note the curved aft doors and the unique scooped shape of the side windows. Moving about the Squadron is safe and easy.  There's an internal staircase from the flybridge to the bridge deck, and wide side decks forward or to the saloon and cockpit area. The extra long flybridge provides a spacious, open air deck saloon which includes a semi circular dining area with a bar, fridge, sink and barbecue griddle. There is also a full width aft subbed and double and single helm seats. With direct access by way of the internal stairway, or from the cockpit up the teak tread ladder, this is a favourite part of the boat for owners and guests alike.  At the stern comprehensive amenities for aft boarding and swimming have been made possible by the design of the large, extended bathing platform. A hydraulic telescopic passerelle with built in dinghy handling facilities; plenty of rope, fender and toy stowage; and a hot and cold transom shower are also found here. The spacious and relaxing aft saloon includes a large and sociable semi circular seating area, an elegant sideboard with Sony DVD 36" LCD flat screen tv and SAT and a comprehensive bar with an ice maker. The separate dining area is on the bridge deck with excellent visibility through the main screen and side windows. The central low level galley, equipped to the highest standard also has easy access to the well fitted utility room complete with an ironing board. There is also a very convenient internal access door to the engine room from the utility room. Guest accommodation is extensive as well as beautifully appointed. There's a master suite forward and two twin bedded guest cabins, plus two large washrooms with separate circular shower enclosures. A crews quarters aft with 2 berths and a w.c. and washbasin.

"Synergy" is a lovely example (Probably one of the best Fairline Squadron 55s on the market)  this beautiful model from Fairline finished in Cherry wood with cream interior furnishings. She has low engine hours for her age and been professionally maintained and upgraded by the owner with a no expense spared attitude to upgrades and maintenance. She must be seen to be appreciated.
