Vessel Overview

The Fairline Squadron 68 is an outstanding yacht and this particular Fairline 68 is an exceptional example! The layout on deck and below deck provide an elegant living space, all configured to maximize comfort both at sea and in port. When at anchor or in port Blind Date has a Williams turbo jet rib to speed you to your harbor destinations. The jet rib is on a hydraulically lowering platform that sets her gently into the water making access easy.

 

Starting with the foredeck is a recessed seating area with low level lighting and a sun pad for lounging. Walk aft to another seating area with a table and a great view aft.  Here there is an access hatch to the engine room. There is plenty of headroom and easy access to everything mechanical and the all-white finish makes it easy inspect.

 

Steps down on either side of the aft deck lead to the swim platform. There is seating that folds away when not in use, a stand-up shower and to starboard is access to the optional captain and mates quarters.

 

From the aft deck there are steps on the port side that lead up to the expansive flybridge. A wonderful place to lounge and entertain with all the amenities. The fully redundant upper helm features three large navigation screens. The hardtop, complete with louvered sunroof adjusts to provide both protection and sunlight as you wish.  A convertible sun pad to port creates plenty of forward-facing seating. Aft of this there is a convenient storage cabinet with a concealed hi-lo outdoor television. Opposite is seating and a table that easily accommodates six guests and features unique pop-up led lighting. Aft there is flybridge wet bar with a refrigerator, ice maker, grill and sink. And all the way aft is even more seating with an exceptional view.

 

As you step into the interior you are immediately struck by two things: the open-air concept design provided by the large windows everywhere and the beauty of the lacquered mahogany joinery, the quality fixtures and upscale furniture all accented by the oak floors. Two-panel hinged salon doors open completely to the aft deck. Along with a retractable bar window bringing the outside inside.

 

The galley is conveniently located just inside the salon doors on the port side and features a full size refrigerator plus an additional freezer drawer, a melee convection oven microwave and a dishwasher. Opposite the galley is a sideboard that has an additional icemaker and a refrigerated wine captain.

 

The salon forward has seating on both sides. Port side is a unique table that raises and lowers electrically to either coffee height or dining height. Opposite is a large TV that retracts when not in use.  The yachts entertainment system is easily controlled by an ipad that combines the sound system and tv entertainment.

 

The helm station has 2 adjustable seats with a broad expansive view. Electric retractable windows on either side of the salon. Systems include a yacht controller wireless helm with joystick controls, multiple cameras, hydraulic bow and stern thruster, a very complete electronic suite, search lights - everything you would want with a modern navigation system. Even a sea keeper gyro stabilizer.

 

Below are 3 ensuite staterooms and a custom utility area for a washer and dryer. The owners athwart ships stateroom is aft with a large ensuite head, plenty of storage and privacy - all that you would expect on a yacht of this caliber. The VIP guest stateroom is forward and very much makes you feel like you are in an owner’s stateroom. This too has an ensuite head with separate shower and lots of storage. The third cabin is also beautifully finished and has twin berths, lots of room and storage and of course an ensuite head.

 

Everywhere you go on this magnificent yacht you are surrounded by luxury!
