The brand new Fairlie 53, which was commissioned this August, is now well under way and on schedule for its launch in August 2013. The one off, custom design has now been in production for 6 weeks, so we shall keep you updated on its progress right through to completion next year.
To re-cap, the Fairlie 53’s dimensions are:
Length - 16.30m / 53 ft
Beam - 3.95m / 13 ft
Draught - 2.60m / 8.5 ft
Displacement - 13,500kg / 29,700 lbs
As you can see from our photos, the team are currently in the process of making 25 sets of laminated mahogany frames and have begun assembling them with the deck frames. The back bone will soon be put into place, and in the meantime, a complete interior mock-up has been built of plywood which is one to one scale. This gives great reference to our team of eight full time specialists who are currently working on the project and ensures that every inch of space is utilised to its fullest potential.
We’ll make sure we keep you updated as this beautiful new boat takes shape.
