Fairline Yachts’ F//Line 33 is another splendid example of how British shipyards are renewing their range with compact, sporty and aesthetically pleasing models. After the Princess Yachts R 35, daycruiser with a top speed of 50 knots and equipped with foil, the F//Line 33, one of the stars of the last Cannes boat show, has shown that across the Channel we are aiming in that direction to conquer the market.

Given the weight played by the design in these boats, the lines of the fastest Fairline Yachts ever were designed by Alberto Mancini. As can be seen again at the next Dussledorf boat show, the Italian designer has put a lot of emphasis on the appeal of the GT 60s cars. The design of the transom is almost perfectly replaceable to the rear sections of a fast road coupé.

Pure open with the cockpit well protected on the sides by the design of the windscreen and the braw that merge into a single soft geometry, but made masculine and muscular by the decisive cuts of the various elements that appear on the wall.


Interesting, and always very automotive, the multifunction steering wheel that accompanies the driving position, otherwise very clean, quai scarce, with a single Garmin display that shows all the indications on navigation and management of on-board systems.

Perfect daycruiser or weekender, below deck the Fairline F Line 33 has a convertible dinette at the bow, kitchen that develops for wall, cabin under the cockpit and separate bathroom.


We now come to the engine room which offers more options. Two concern the more contained cavalry. The choice is between two Volvo Penta: petrol V6 with 240 horsepower each (33 knots top speed) or two D3 diesel, for 440 total horsepower (32 knots top speed). To get close to 50 knots when pushing the throttle down, the British yard offers its options, both gasoline. Either two Volvo Penta V8s with 430 horsepower each or two Mercruiser V8 8.2s of the same power that allow the F Line 33 to reach 48 knots.
