Someone must have told the Fairline design team and naval architect Bernard Olesinski to think “outside the boat” and bring something new to the table. The plan seems to have worked, because this interior is unique on many levels. Let’s start with the floor plan.
Notice first, that there are accommodations for crew quarters... in a 58’ boat! Now that space will probably not be used for crew in America, lazarettes tend to have more appeal, but you never know. As we grow older as operators, changing oil and constant cleaning seems to be losing its appeal. When utilized as crew space, there are accommodations for full electrical in the cabin and head, a frosted porthole for natural light (rarely seen in ANY crew space, let alone on a 58’ boat), parquet flooring, and a private ensuite head. As a lazarette, the teak flooring stays and a wet hanging area is added. Moving forward, two staterooms lie midships, and both are mirror images of each other: twin berths easily convert to a large double, two windows with aluminum venetian blinds, and the usual hanging locker. Each of these cabins also has their own private ensuite head with separate glass enclosed showers and opening portlights. The starboard head also serves as a day head with access to the main companionway. Now we’re thinking, “ok, if the guest cabins are midships, the master must be forward with the island berth stuffed into the bow.” Not quite on the 58 Gran Turismo.
Unusual Master Layout
Heading to the master stateroom shows a major design change from the norm and we love it. The berth isn’t stuffed into the bow, it’s further back in a much more open space. The small bow is reserved for the master head, a space that hardly commands large chunks of real estate and this is a brilliant concept. Now all kinds of room is available and Fairline adds some good features to it. A chaise lounge lies to starboard next to a window, with opening portlights. Full height standing headroom, an oversized double berth, gobs of storage, and twin bedside tables adorn the room.
The master ensuite head isn’t lacking in space either. It’s accessed via a sliding door, and there’s room for an oversized shower with two seats, and get this… twin gull wing opening skylights. Probably not advantageous if anyone is working the ground tackle up above, but otherwise, very cool feature for a master head. All staterooms are accessed via a stairway from the main deck, below the stairs is storage and the lobby area also holds room for additional appliances, such as a washer and dryer.
The innovations that started in the lower deck continue as we move towards the main deck. A galley aft layout with dining areas both across and out on the aft deck, both within easy reach. The galley features a combination oven/microwave/grill, a dual basin sink and plenty of storage.
The entire deck has 360 degree visibility, and if that’s not enough to being the outside in for you, it only gets better. At the touch of a button, albeit an optional button, the aft door retracts, side windows open, and an air cushioned retractable hardtop glides open, and now you’re fully outdoors getting all the fresh air and sunshine you can handle.
On the aft deck, there is deck access to the utility room/crew quarters, and overhead… a retractable sun shade. If you decide to keep the sun option available, the C-shaped seating and table convert to a sunpad. There’s also life raft storage here, a feature that usually isn’t even thought about until you get to a much larger yacht. There are also mooring warps for the med moor fans.
The helm also has innovations of its own. Most notable, the helmsman sits to port and the observer sits to starboard, against the windows. The console itself is a work of art that looks like it should be under glass. Features that the rest of the world seem to keep forgetting about, but are included here are bilge pump switches with integral warning lights and audible alarms, chart storage (you know… those paper things?), and chart table. We love the Fairline Systems PILOT that gives you displays, controls and monitors for the electrical systems and tank levels reminiscent of the stateside E-Plex system. Full instrumentation and a full array of electronics including a Garmin GHP 10 autopilot system with color display, a Garmin GMI 10 digital multi-function instrument system with color display, a Garmin GPSmap 4012 (12") Display, and a Garmin VHF 300i marine radio. The color Garmin displays are mounted over on the starboard side in front of the observer’s station. The upper instrumentation platform retracts out of sight when not in use. The helm is illuminated in red for night use and the twin helm seats are completely, and independently, controlled.
