Hoping to attract a new range of clientele, Fairline looked at a number of design studios before making the decision to work with Alberto Mancini. The designer has worked on a number of superyachts for well-known brands including Baglietto and Overmarine.
Andrew Pope, head of design at Fairline Yachts said, “Alberto clearly demonstrated his understanding of the Fairline brand and we’re very excited to see him applying his talent and design language to our future new models.
“The addition of Vripack and the excellence in naval engineering that they bring, will ensure each of our new models are at the leading edge of marine technology.”
Speaking about the new partnership, Mancini commented, “I am looking forward to creating a new era of Fairline yachts with a new, fresh, sleek design of both interior and exterior.
“In a romantic way, this partnership reminds me of a time from the 1950s and 60s when famous British car makers and the Italian styling houses of Pininfarina, Touring Superlegerra and Zagato created some of the most beautiful and classic designs.”
Following on from Mancini’s comments, Russell Currie, managing director at Fairline Yachts added, “Introducing the creative flair and style of Alberto Mancini with the engineering excellence of Vripack to the exceptional quality and British craftsmanship we already have at Fairline makes an exciting combination. I look forward to showing our new product designs over the coming weeks and months.”
