Into Africa: Fairline Sees Expansion in Key Markets with Important Sales

Fairline Boats is set to continue its expansion in Africa, with three models from its luxury range recently sold to customers in East and West Africa by its South African dealership.

The company recently celebrated an important milestone with the delivery of its first Squadron 65 to Fairline South Africa in Cape Town.

The boat is destined for Luanda, Angola, and is the second model to be sold into the country, following a recent sale of a Targa 38.

Fairline South Africa has also ordered a Targa 48 OPEN for a customer based on Lake Malawi in East Africa, due to arrive later in the year. 

With offices located in two of South Africa’s boating hotspots, Cape Town and Durban, the dealership headed up by Derrick Levy, who has over forty years’ experience in the South African leisure boating market is well placed to aid the brand’s continued development into Africa.

To celebrate the model’s arrival, Levy held a spectacular VIP event at The One & Only hotel on the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront.

Guests from the local boating community were invited to explore the Squadron 65 against the stunning backdrop of Table Mountain.

After a series of private viewings last week, the Squadron will now travel a further 1,648 nautical miles to Luanda.
