Phase one of the brand new Fairlie 53 is now complete and yesterday, amid much excitement and camera flashes, the cold moulded constructed hull was rolled over 180 degrees.
Lifted by winches and crane, the 53 was gently eased onto her cradle, ready for her complete fit out and build completion, which is still on target for the end of August.
The Fairlie's new Spanish owner stood, literally in awe, at the beauty of his new purchase, as did an audience of enthusiastic viewers. It is only now that one can truly appreciate the precision and beauty of this yacht’s classic and traditional lines.
