The British shipyard Fairline has never produced anything like the 9.99m F//Line 33, which was unveiled in Cannes in autumn 2019.
Stylish gliding hull with almost vertical nose and exterior F//Line 33 is the result of the famous Italian designer Alberto Mancini. According to him, he was inspired to create the concept of the boat by the shape of expensive sports cars of the 60s.
«Other boats may be more thoughtful, faster and brighter, but none of them touch the strings of the soul like the F//Line 33," Motorboat & Yachting magazine»wrote in 2018.
The first Russian F//Line 33 hull could be seen only six months after the premiere at the Moscow Boat Show in March 2020. Of course, we couldn't miss the chance to get to know this boat closer, especially since its customer was a Russian and it will be operated in Moscow. The founder and creative director of itBoat Nikita Gorchakov went to Crocus«Expo».
So, here are the main conclusions that we made after examining F//Line 33 and talking to the Russian dealer of Fairline.
This boat is mainly for short walks on a sunny day, but it can be used for a small family cruise with overnight stay - good fuel reserves and amazing habitability for these sizes: high flows are worthy of special mention in the cabin company, where the table with a sofa turns into a V-shaped bed, and a full bathroom. But considering the Russian climate, when ordering the F//Line 33, it is worth adding bimini roofs and an awning for the parking areas, which completely cover the open deck.
The engine range includes gasoline speakers from Volvo Penta and Mercruiser for 240 or 430 hp, but it is also possible to order a diesel. From 2020, the F//Line 33 is also available with outboard engines, so beloved by many for their ease of service. The maximum with the most powerful engine is 48 knots.
The model is comparable in price to its analogues from Riva and Princess, as well as some top boats from American brands, such as Cruisers Yachts or Sea Ray. With«Europeans, the boat» brings external beauty and attention to detail, with Americans«- habitability»and functionality.
