Welcome to the Squadron 48, where attention to detail and ingenuity are used to create unforgettable experiences. You can enjoy this Squadron in so many ways; for its size it is destined to be one of the most enjoyable yachts on the water.
With its roof open to the skies above and a large rear sunpad inviting you to soak up the sun, this thoroughbred Targa is ready to take the true Mediterranean spirit and style to the rest of the world.
As with every Squadron, the 65 gives you the distinct impression of being on board a very large yacht. The flybridge has been designed with sociability in mind and features comprehensive entertainment facilities and two large, luxurious daybeds. A central window runs the full length of the sun pad on the foredeck bringing daylight into the forward cabin and adding a stylish look to the exterior.
The elegant, award-winning Squadron 78 CUSTOM draws on a 40-year heritage. From the well-proven hull to the exquisite furnishings and cabinetry, more than 12,000 Fairlines stand behind the creation of this peerless luxury motor yacht. As its name implies, a high level of customisation is available and clients can rely on the specialist advice and experience of our Yacht Division throughout the order and commissioning process.
With an increase in size comes an increase in the ability to really impress. This 65-foot Squadron appears to go one step further than similar sized boats on every level.
Sumptuous furnishings and hand-worked cabinetry are hallmarks of the Squadron range. Nowhere is it more elegantly expressed than in the long, wide single-level interior – a testament to the 65’s ingenious flat floor design. Having such uncomplicated, single floor levels is normally reserved for much larger yachts, but our designers have achieved just that on this 65-footer. An elegant, beautifully proportioned Squadron awaits you.
Balcony to the world
The huge flybridge sums up the personality of this yacht. Spacious and easy to move around, yet packed with usable features. It has three distinct social areas: a forward cruising chaise longue and sun pad, aft facing sunbeds and a seating/dining area. A truly relaxing lounge area for family and friends to while away the day.
The free-flowing saloon area allows guests to interact more freely and with the galley positioned at the heart of the yacht there is every opportunity to socialise with all those around you. The master cabin enjoys a spacious, open-plan en suite and the forward cabin features a floating bed design – both have substantial wardrobe and storage space.
The aft cabin has two unique personalities. You can specify it as a guest cabin with access via the cockpit, or as a crew cabin with its own private access through the transom. Furthermore, the hydraulic hi-lo bathing platform gradually introduces you to the water and is the perfect place to launch your tender.
