Classic Failrline 36 Turbo from the drawing board of Bernard Olesinski and built by Fairline Boats in 1983.  These boats were the cutting edge of thier time giving good performance and accommodation with a superior fit out to the equivalent Princess of the same period

This example is in good condition with just 3 owners, the current owners having bought her in 2004. She has been lovingly maintained and used conservatively for family cruising along the South West coast and the Channel Islands

Owners comments

We purchased "Nauti Buoy" 15 years ago when we switched from Sail to Power.  We had owned a number of Sailing Yachts over the years and the transition to a Power Boat was made easier by choosing the Failine 36 Turbo, we have not looked back.

We have enjoyed extensive cruising locally on the South West coast, across the channel to Normandy, Jersey and Guernsey

Nauti Buoy has been maintained to a great standard, serviced regularly, always laid up
correctly in the winter months and has been a smoke and pet free boat.

The Volvo engines deliver the rated performance of 22 knots, and cruise happily at 12 -18 kts, depending on your timescales

The port engine most recently being stripped and rebuilt in 2019. We are only selling the boat after owning her for many years as we are regrettably retiring from boating
