Broker's Comments

Benefiting from a December 2016 Full Condition Survey, after which the owner carried out all the works highlighted as well as spending a considerable sum improving her throughout.
She is now on the market as the owner is relocating to Australia.
This Fairline Squadron 55 is an excellent example of Fairline's longest reigning model. Beautifully finished internally with stone leather and highly polished cherry woodwork.
Spacious and luxurious with a 2 berth crew cabin with ensuite WC and basin.
Her teak decks are in excellent condition and she has clearly been very well looked after.

The D12-700 delivers excellent performance and cruising range, high reliability and durability, in combination with the highest level of quality
