The Fairline Squadron 62 is a 63-foot luxury motor yacht with a flybridge produced by British yacht-building icon Fairline Yachts between 2001 and 2008. A striking modern design with sculpted lines, curved glazing and a swept-back, open-air flybridge have been paired with a swift, Bernard Olesinski-designed deep-V hull and meaty engines to make this an enduring classic on the used and charter markets.
Curving teak steps lead up to an open-air flybridge that benefits from an optional Bimini sunshade. A unique, curved wet-bar station up here boasts space for a sink, a fridge and a large grill and sits across from a J-shaped sofa tracing the edges of the flybridge with an oval-dining table alongside it. A trio of helm seats face a modern dashboard with a transparent windscreen, and nestled just ahead of this is a casbah-style forward sun-pad area where you can lounge for hours in the bright rays.
Down on the main deck you will encounter a double sunpad out on the foredeck as well as a spacious aft-cockpit with a transom sofa in piped upholstery and room for a large dining table. Side steps lead down to a full-beam swimming platform to stern that doubles as tender storage, while a Besenzoni crane is on hand to lift your toys in and out of the water.
Two curvaceous sofas in plush cream-toned leather define a main-deck salon lined in glossy timber with soft carpeting underfoot and unusually high ceilings. There’s also a home entertainment system in here, along with rounded cabinets, a bespoke coffee table and a further C-shaped dining sofa on a slightly raised level, while towards the very front you will find two leather helm seats facing a walnut-lined dashboard. The helm features a skipper’s door, Raymarine display screens, plenty of analogue instrumentation, bow thruster controls, VHF radio, and autopilot, along with excellent visibility.
Lower deck spaces offer a sedate and well-lit retreat lined in glossy American cherry with Berber carpeting underfoot. A twin room to starboard features a full-height closet, room for a bedside table and access to a lower bathroom with a shower that doubles as a day-head. A VIP en-suite stateroom to the bow gifts guests a queen-sized island bed, a skylight and two capacious lockers, while the owner’s stateroom is located amidship. This sizeable suite features an island bed, a large closet, a bench seat and a bathroom with marble-effect surfaces, a sink and an enclosed shower cubicle with a teak sole. There is also a separate sunken galley on this level boasting granite work surfaces, a steel sink, a four-zone hob, a microwave oven, raised cabinet space and a full-height fridge-freezer tower.
A swift mover even by today’s standards, the Squadron 62 can reach top speeds of up to 35 knots thanks to a pair of 800hp Caterpillar 3406 inboards or two 1050hp MAN diesel engines. Cruising speeds of 30 knots deliver a range of around 300 nautical miles, while the hull enhances this yacht’s agility and stability at high speeds.
