A subsidiary of Al Ghaith Group of Companies – which also owns Middle East Aston Martin – Fairline United Arab Emirates (UAE) heralds the start of a new chapter for Fairline in the Middle East.
The addition of Fairline UAE also adds another luxury brand to the growing portfolio of luxury companies under the Al Ghaith Group of Companies umbrella.
Stefan Spruck, Director of Al Ghaith Group of Companies, said: “We are delighted that Fairline UAE has joined our expanding group of luxury companies.
“Along with Middle East Aston Martin, we have several prestigious brands that will work with each other to effectively cross market their products to our high profile base of individuals who expect the best in luxury and an unparalleled ownership experience which we offer throughout our group of luxury companies,” added Stefan Spruck.
Fairline, which this year celebrates its 40th year of boat building, is one of the most revered boat manufacturers and employs over 1300 people in the UK – home to the brand.
With just over 60 dealers worldwide, Fairline UAE joins an exclusive network of dealers that are hand-picked to offer customers the very best service before and after choosing their Fairline for the first time, or upgrading their existing boat to a new model.
Thomas Kastgen, CEO, Fairline UAE, said: “We are delighted to have been selected to join the prestigious list of dealers worldwide with Fairline UAE.
“Our office in Dubai is the first of several offices we will be launching across the Middle East in the next two years and these will include Bahrain, Qatar, Oman and Saudi Arabia,” he added.
Fairline UAE will operate from its dedicated office at the new Dubai Marina Yacht Club, which is currently being completed.
“From our office at Dubai Marina, we will offer first class yacht sales and after-sales services – as well as Fairline charter operations,” added Kastgen.
Recognising the importance of allowing potential customers to experience the brand, Fairline UAE will also support its operations with two demonstrator boats – the Targa 44 and Squadron 58.
“Both boats will allow customers to ‘live’ the lifestyle of the brand and experience first hand what it could feel like to own a Fairline full-time,” added Kastgen.
Fairline Boats manufacture luxury motor yachts from 38 – 78 feet in three distinct ranges: the Targa range – a sociable, open-cockpit sports boat; the Fairline Phantom Flybridge Series – suited to long-range cruising and featuring more generous accommodation and the Fairline Squadron range – the epitome of a true flybridge motor yacht for long periods afloat.
The Targa range has been boosted in 2007 with the launch of two new Targa models; the Targa 44 GRAN TURISMO IPS and the new flagship, the Targa 64 GRAN TURISMO.
The Targa range with ‘Open’ cockpits is currently produced in 38 and 40ft while the Targa GRAN TURISMO range is currently produced in 44, 47, 52 and 64ft and all feature fully retractable powered hard top roofs.
The flybridge Phantoms are currently available in 40, 48 and 50ft options and the Squadron range is currently produced in 58, 68 and 78ft options.
These current models continue to offer one of the world’s most up to date ranges; in demand all over the world, contemporary styling cues combine with 21st century technology to deliver the ultimate in luxury performance motor yachts.
